April 3, 2017 Abaco Systems announced the 3U OpenVPX member of its 40 Gigabit Ethernet ecosystem. The SBC367D 3U OpenVPX single board computer features the Intel Xeon D-1500 processor family with up to 16 cores, up to 32GBytes (soon to be 64GBytes) of DDR4 SDRAM memory – and support for 10/40 Gigabyte Ethernet across the backplane.
Abaco previously announced the 40 Gigabit Ethernet capable SBC627 6U OpenVPX single board computer, DSP282A multiprocessor and SWE540 fully managed Ethernet switch.
Designed for applications such as electronic warfare and ISR, the SBC367D provides a 40 Gigabit Ethernet alternative to the PCI Express-based SBC347D. Like the SBC347D, it includes a range of security features designed to support user-defined Anti-Tamper and Information Assurance strategies. These include an FPGA solution (SmartFusion2 from Microsemi™), and support for Intel’s Trusted Execution Technology.
PCI Express-based solutions are ideal for smaller system solutions with a relatively low number of host cards and peripherals. Ethernet-based architectures are preferred for larger, multi-module systems. The provision of 40 Gigabit Ethernet support now makes it possible to develop HPEC (high performance embedded computing) systems in the 3U VPX form factor.
Available in a range of air- and conduction cooled build levels with extended temperature capability, the SBC367D will offer a software choice including AMI UEFI (with support of BIOS Guard for signed image execution); Intel Firmware Support Package (FSP) enabled coreboot; FSP enabled Built In test; VxWorks 7; Windows 10; Open Linux support (Fedora); Advantage Linux support (Red Hat Enterprise Linux), and with support for RDMA which provides low latency and low CPU overhead communication at close to wire speed.
