CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., 25 Dec. 2009. GE Intelligent Platforms in Charlottesville, Va., is introducing the G4ADSP rugged 6U VME multiprocessing computer boards for demanding applications such as radar, sonar, image processing, and military communications.

The G4ADSP computer board for embedded systems has four Freescale MPC 7448 processors operating as fast as 1.4 GHz, as much as 2 gigabytes of DDR memory, and I/O consisting of four Gigabit Ethernet channels and PCI on P-zero. The single-board computer is form, fit and function compatible with the GE G4DSP embedded computer, and supports GE's AXIS advanced multiprocessor integrated software development environment.

The G4ADSP CPU board also includes one PCI port to P-zero; PCI-X to all four nodes and to both PMC sites; four serial ports; and support for VxWorks from Wind River Systems. The embedded computing platform is available in five ruggedization levels to allow for development in benign environments and deployment in harsh environments.
