CHATSWORTH, Calif. – Aitech Defense Systems Inc. in Chatsworth, Calif., is introducing four single-board computers with the ultra-low power T4xx1 processor family from NXP for size-, weight-, power-, and cost (SWaP-C)-optimized trusted computing applications in rugged and mobile environments.
Aitech has implemented NXP's low-power T4241, T4161, and T4081 PowerPC variants on the company's QorIQ-based computer boards. The low-power series is available on the Aitech C912 3U VPX, C111 6U VME, and C112 6U VPX computer boards.
The C912 3U VPX boards offers as many as 12 e6500 PowerPC cores. All of Aitech's boards in this series have NXP's Trust Architecture 2.0, which provides a high-trust cyber security processing environment for sensitive data security and supervisory control -- a typical requirement for manned and unmanned space, air and ground vehicles.
For those looking for an integrated hardware- and software-bundled platform that offers exceptional graphics computing, the CB912 VideoPaC also comes with the option of using a processor from the low-power T4xx1 Series.
The CB912 combines a 3U VPX single-slot computer board with a video/graphics XMC mezzanine using AMD's E8860 Radeon GPU to create new dimensions of imaging, high-end graphics and data processing.
The T4xx1 Series is 100 percent software compatible with the original T4xx0 family, meaning designers can use either on the Aitech COTS computer boards, depending on their individual application requirements.
The low-power processors offer an extended temperature range of -40 to 105 degrees Celsius on all 1.8 GHz speed bins as well as thermal power reduction to 21 percent, depending on the device and speed.
