April 9, 2019 - Abaco Systems announces the SBC3511 3U OpenVPX single board computer, which provides a combination of performance, security and thermal management. Target applications for the platform include C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance)and the industrial applications.
The SBC3511’s has an integrated Intel Xeon E-2176M 6-core/12-thread processor (Coffee Lake) operating at 2.7GHz with TurboBoost up to 4.4GHz, 32 GBytes of DDR4 RAM and the inclusion of up to 256 GBytes of nVME SSD. It also features a 40 Gigabit Ethernet data plane, delivering not only an interconnect but also alignment with the SOSA technical standard.
SOSA – Sensor Open Systems Architecture - creates a common framework for transitioning sensor systems to an open systems architecture, based on key interfaces and open standards established by industry-government consensus.
The single board computer includes a range of security features designed to assist with user-defined Anti-Tamper and Information Assurance strategies. The onboard Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC’s built-in security capabilities includean unclonable function (PUF), user-accessible hardened cryptographic blocks, asymmetric authentication, side channel attack protection, and other silicon-based AT features. It can be utilized to instantiate a range of Abaco-defined security features, or by customers to embed application-specific features. Support is also provided for Intel’s Trusted Execution Technology.
The SBC3511 features a thermal management design which allows deterministic performance even at the extended temperatures typical of deployment on space-constrained platforms in combat zones.
Development kits, including starter cages and accessories, are also available.
The SBC3511 also includes a x8 PCIe Gen 3 XMC site; one USB 2.0 port and one USB 3.1 port; a DisplayPort™ interface; two serial ports; a SATA port; and up to eight GPIO pins.
Also included is a rich range of software options. AMI UEFI includes support of BIOS Guard for signed image execution. Open Linux (Fedora), Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS (Linux), Wind River Linux, VxWorks 7, Windows 10 will also be available, as will comprehensive deployed test software (PBIT, CBIT and IBIT).
