HUNTSVILLE, Ala., 16 Feb. 2016. Abaco Systems in Huntsville, Ala., is introducing the DSP282 6U OpenVPX rugged embedded computing multiprocessor for processor-intensive systems deployed in harsh environments such as radar, sonar, image-, and sensor processing.

The board delivers as much power as 665.6 GigaFLOPS of throughput per card slot as well as supporting advanced 3D graphics. It is suited for manned- and unmanned airborne, ground, and naval applications that need maximum performance and constrained size, weight, and power consumption (SWaP).

The DSP282, which features dual 5th generation Intel Core i7 2.4 GHz quad core processors for high-performance embedded computing (HPEC). It uses RDMA-enabled InfiniBand and Ethernet dual network interface cards fir scalability as well as for high inter-processor bandwidth at low memory-to-memory latencies.

Systems integrators can minimize card count by mapping multiple platform functions such as control, DSP, image-, and video processing and graphics onto one or more DSP282s.

The DSP282 offers the on-board Security Hub, and is form, fit and function compatible with its predecessor, the DSP280, offering a straightforward upgrade path.

Abaco's AXISPro application development environment supports application optimization for multi-core, multi-threaded, and multi-node distributed system architectures across operating systems like Linux, Windows and VxWorks.
