Multiprocessor adds 40GbE for minimal latency in high-rel use
In response to demand for greater system throughput, Abaco Systems has added the DSP282A 6U OpenVPX rugged multiprocessor with 40GbE, which joins the DSP282, announced earlier this year, which supports 10GbE.
The DSP282A is designed to fulfil the requirements of very large radar systems such as synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and ground moving target indicator (GMTI) where minimal latency is essential. The 40GbE on the backplane allows data derived from multiple high resolution sensors to be moved to the processor and then in the least possible time, says the company.
It delivers up to 665.6GFLOPS of throughput per card slot and supports 3D graphics, making it suitable for a range of manned- and unmanned airborne, ground and naval applications. These need maximum performance yet are highly constrained in terms of size, weight and power, points out the company.
Dual fifth generation Intel Core i7 2.4GHz quad core processors accompany high performance computing (HPC) technologies found in large, commercial data centres, for high performance embedded computing (HPEC) reducing risk, cost and time-to-market, claims the company.
System integrators can minimise card count by mapping multiple platform functions such as control, DSP, image- and video processing and graphics onto one or more DSP282As to reduce spares.
The company’s on-board Security Hub is integrated, with support for the latest Intel platform security features, offer protection.
The assembly is form-, fit- and function-compatible with its predecessors. The company’s AXISPro application development environment supports application optimisation for multi-core, multi-threaded and multi-node distributed system architectures across multiple OS including Linux, Windows and VxWorks and includes quick start signal- and image processing examples.
