Rugged single board computer with Broadwell processor

30 June 2015

GE Energy Management’s Intelligent Platforms  business has introduced the SBC347A rugged 3U OpenVPX single board computer (SBC). Based on the latest ‘Broadwell’ processor technology from Intel, it is said to deliver higher performance and greater functionality while maintaining the same power envelope. 

The SBC374A is the first in a number of Broadwell-based products that GE plans to introduce. It is designed for demanding applications in harsh, SWaP (size, weight and power) constrained military environments such as manned and unmanned vehicles, signal processing in ISR (intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance), sonar, radar, and command/control, as well as the most challenging applications in industry such as energy exploration and transportation.

The unit benefits from two channels of 10Gbase-T connectivity, giving it 10 times the Ethernet capability of earlier SBCs which allows GE users upgrading to benefit from enhanced connectivity on the control plane without the need to undertake disruptive infrastructure changes.

The latest Intel Core i7 quad core processor, operating at up to 2.7GHz, can deliver up to 15% greater CPU performance and 30% greater 3D graphics performance compared with its predecessors, says the company. 

The SBC374A is available in five build levels, from benign environment (air cooled) to fully rugged (conduction cooled), and supports Microsoft Windows, Open Linux and VxWorks.  http://www.geautomation.com/download/sbc347a-datasheet
