January 5, 2016 - Abaco Systems announced the SBC347D rugged 3U VPX single board computer featuring the Intel Xeon Processor D-1500 Family. The SBC347D will use versions of the processor that offer support for up to 16 cores (which Intel will make available in the first quarter of 2016). The SBC347D is specifically designed for demanding high performance embedded computing (HPEC) applications.
The higher level of integration of the Intel Xeon Processor D-1500 Family provides additional board real estate, enabling the SBC347D to support twice as much memory. The SBC347D features up to 32GBytes of DDR4 ECC memory, operating at up to 2.0 MHZ, enabling good memory performance; 32 GBytes NAND Flash (SSD), 32 MBytes BIOS Flash and 16 MBytes BIOS backup Flash memory are also provided.
Of particular note is the provision made by the SBC347D to enable customers to implement their security and information assurance strategies. This is achieved via a secure FPGA solution that offers inherent reliability and security features such as protection against differential power analysis (DPA) attacks and against single event upsets (SEU) as well as a range of tamper detect, encryption and zeroisation features which can be implemented by the user. Additional security provision is offered in the form of Intel Trusted Execution Technology.
The SBC347D is designed to offer maximum PCIe bandwidth to the back-plane with a total of 20 PCIe lanes (x4 and x16 ports) across the P1 and P2 connectors. The x16 link is ideal for connection to ultra-high performance GPGPU modules such as the GRA112 and GRA113.
Available in a range of air- and conduction cooled build levels with extended temperature capability, the SBC347D is designed to meet the requirements of a wide range of applications from industrial through to fully rugged defense and aerospace programs.
