HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Abaco Systems in Huntsville, Ala., is introducing the SBC347D 3U VPX single board computer with improved electronics cooling for demanding high-performance embedded computing (HPEC) military and aerospace applications such as command and control; intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), signal processing, radar and sonar, and electronic warfare (EW).
Abaco uses a space-grade thermal-management technology to enable the board's 12-core Intel Xeon D-1500 processor to operate at 100 percent of its capability at temperatures to 75 degrees Celsius in a conduction-cooled environment.
Traditional solutions throttle the CPU by as much as 50 percent of its core frequency to maintain the processor within its rated temperature range to avoid failure.
Abaco's thermal-management technology in the computer board heat frame removes and spreads heat while maintaining 500-volt electrical isolation. Not only is the SBC347D able to perform at relatively high temperatures, but also is lighter weight than traditional solid metal heat sinks.
The SBC347D has versions of the Xeon D-1500 processor that offer support for as many as 16 cores, and can support twice as much memory as its predecessor. The SBC347D has as much as 32 gigabytes of DDR4 ECC memory operating to 2 MHZ; 32 gigabytes of solid-state NAND Flash; 32 megabytes BIOS Flash; and 16 megabytes BIOS backup Flash memory.
The SBC347D helps designers implement trusted computing via a secure FPGA that protects against differential power analysis (DPA) attacks and single-event upsets (SEU), as well as a range of tamper-detect, encryption, and zeroisation.
Existing SBC34X systems can be upgraded via pin-out options. For more information contact Abaco online at www.abaco.com.
