3U VPX SBC is based on latest Intel processor for drop-in upgrades
Designed as a straightforward, cost-effective, drop-in option for existing users of Abaco’s mission-ready systems, and as a powerful, minimal SWaP SBC for customers developing their own systems for use in deployed in harsh, highly-constrained environments, the SBC329 3U OpenVPX SBC offers around 10 per cent performance improvement over its predecessors.
The SBC is based on Intel’s latest silicon, and is the third SBC from Abaco to feature the seventh generation Intel Core technology (codenamed Kaby Lake).
The SBC329 is available in two variants, both pin-compatible with the company’s SBC326 and SBC328 SBCs. For applications prioritising throughput and performance, the SBC329 is configurable with the Intel Xeon E3-1505M V6 processor operating at 3.0GHz. For applications prioritising minimal power consumption/heat dissipation, the Intel Xeon E3-1505L operating at 2.2GHz is available.
Enhanced support for customers planning to implement advanced security capabilities includes an inherently secure FPGA solution, and support for Intel’s Trusted Execution Technology (TEE) for anti-tamper and information protection.
There is also support for the company’s AXIS Advanced Multiprocessor Integrated Software development environment. This enables the rapid creation and testing of sophisticated HPEC applications, says the company, designed to reduce risk, cost and time-to-market.
The SBC329 supports a comprehensive range of onboard I/O features. It also offers an on-board mezzanine expansion site for enhanced system flexibility. Memory resources include 16Gbyte DDR4 SDRAM, up to 32Gbyte NAND Flash (SSD), 32Mbyte BIOS flash and 16Mbyte BIOS back-up flash.
