HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Abaco Systems in Huntsville, Ala., is introducing the SBC329 rugged 3U OpenVPX single board computer as a drop-in replacement for existing users of Abaco's mission ready embedded computing systems for demanding applications to be deployed in harsh constrained environments.

The SBC329 offers a 10 percent performance improvement over its predecessors. It is based on the latest 7th generation Intel Core technology (codenamed "Kaby Lake").

The SBC329 is available in two variants that are pin-compatible with previous versions. For applications prioritizing throughput and performance, the SBC329 is configurable with the Intel Xeon E3-1505M V6 processor operating at 3 GHz. For applications prioritizing minimal power consumption and heat dissipation, the Intel Xeon E3-1505L operating at 2.2 GHz is available.

The SBC329 provides advanced security capabilities such as anti-tamper and information assurance, including an inherently secure field-programmable gate array (FPGA), and support for Intel's Trusted Execution Technology.

It also offers support for Abaco's AXIS Advanced Multiprocessor Integrated Software development environment that enables the rapid creation and testing of sophisticated high-performance embedded computing (HPEC) applications.

The board also offers an on-board mezzanine expansion site, and memory resources include 16 gigabytes of DDR4 SDRAM, as much as 32 gigabytes of NAND Flash (SSD), 32 megabytes BIOS Flash and 16 megabytes BIOS backup Flash.
