MIDDLETON, Wis. – Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) in Middleton, Wis., is announcing the integration of its secure-by-design XPedite7674 3U VPX embedded computing board with the LynxSecure Safety Bundle secure software from Lynx Software Technologies in San Jose, Calif., for aerospace and defense trusted computing applications.
The LynxSecure Safety Bundle is an open-systems architecture that unlocks the potential of multi-core processors such as the Intel Xeon D to deliver second-generation Integrated Modular Avionics.
Lynx and X-ES have created a board support package (BSP) for LynxSecure Safety Bundle on XPedite7674 for military and aerospace embedded computing applications. The board offers as many as 16 processor cores and extended-temperature support, designed with X-ES’ SecureCOTS technology.
The LynxSecure Safety Bundle integrates system development services for platform suppliers to build, deploy, and sustain their second-generation Integrated Modular Avionics platform.
The XPedite7674 is a high-performance, 3U VPX-REDI, single board computer based on the Xeon D processor. The Intel Xeon D processor offers native extended temperature support for as many as 12 core-count SKUs.
The XPedite7674 provides secure network interfaces by providing one 1000 BASE-X Gigabit Ethernet interface from the FPGA and passing two CPU 10 Gigabit 10 GBASE-KR Ethernet interfaces through the FPGA. It also supports a user-configurable Xilinx Kintex UltraScale FPGA for hosting custom functions to protect data from being modified or observed and provides an ideal solution when stringent security capabilities are required.
This development reduces the time, cost, and design risk associated with developing, certifying, and sustaining mixed criticality avionics designs on complex multi-core architectures, says Aaron Lindner, director of engineering at X-ES.
"Together, Lynx LynxSecure Safety Bundle and X-ES XPedite7674 offer customers an open development capability in which they can run bare metal, LynxOS-178, Linux or other RTOS or OS-based system modules or applications together, residing safely and securely in a single multi-core time and space partitioned system, says Lee Cresswell, vice president of global sales at Lynx Software Technologies.
