HUNTSVILLE, Ala., 8 July 2014. GE Intelligent Platforms in Huntsville, Ala., is introducing the SBC626 rugged 6U VPX single board computer for constrained environments such as manned- and unmanned vehicles. The computer board is based on the quad-core 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor.

The SBC626 embedded computing board delivers enhanced processor performance, improved graphics performance, connectivity, and upgraded security within the same power envelope as previous generations of GE's single-board computer family for signal processing applications in command and control, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), sonar, radar, and demanding industrial and commercial applications.

The SBC626 is form, fit, and function compatible with earlier models, providing a technology insertion opportunity. The SBC626 includes an optional Security Hub field-programmable gate array (FPGA) that combines passive and active features to develop a on-board anti-tamper capability.

The single board computer benefits from the 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor's support of PCI Express Gen3 technology and USB3.0. Its PCI Express interface makes the products hosts to drive GE's GPGPU boards, such as the IPN251 and NPN240.

The SBC626 provides support for AXIS, GE's Advanced Multiprocessor Integrated Software development environment, which is designed to significantly reduce the complexity, time and cost of developing sophisticated applications.
