May 13, 2020 - Abaco Systems announced the DSP221. The DSP221 is an extension of the legacy DSP220, by refreshing to the NXP T2081 quad core processor. The DSP221 delivers a solution toward achieving production lifetime.
The DSP221 is the NXP QorIQTM based product to join Abaco’s 6U VME and VXS single board computers. It provides Ethernet fabric support with a technological refresh. This product provides an improvement from a single core processor to a modern multi core power architecture processor. This technology refresh reduces power consumption by over half compared to the DSP220.
The DSP221 incorporates the T2081 processor and is designed specifically for harsh environments. It is suitable for a range of applications demanding reliability, like critical industrial, aerospace and defense applications. The DSP221 is available in air-cooled ruggedization levels, offering a clear path for new customers and existing DSP220 users looking for modernization of existing systems.
The DSP221 is a 6U VXS single board computer with Power Architecture AMP CPU with eight e6500 virtual cores (4 cores, dual threaded with AltiVec co-processing). It includes 8 GB DDR3 SDRAM with ECC Single Bank, 512MB NOR Flash, 32GB NAND Flash solid-state drive, 512 kB non-volatile nvSRAM, 2x independent PMC/XMC sites, 2x 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet, 2x RS232 ports, 4x single-ended GPIO (5V tolerant), and has a Baseboard Management Module (BMM). Standard software options including Uboot, PBIT, CIBIT, and VxWorks 7 (SR0630). Linux Yocto distribution is available on request.
