The G4ADSP from GE Intelligent Platforms has variable ruggedness levels for development through to deployment in harsh environments for applications such as radar and sonar
Rugged quad processor for defence applications
GE Intelligent Platforms, a unit of GE Enterprise Solutions, has announced the G4ADSP rugged 6U VME multiprocessor. Designed for demanding applications such as radar, sonar, image processing and communications, the G4ADSP provides improved processing performance with four Freescale MPC 7448 processors operating at up to 1.4GHz; improved memory performance through the inclusion of up to 2 GBytes of DDR memory; and improved I/O performance with the incorporation of four Gigabit Ethernet channels and PCI on P0. The G4ADSP is also a compelling upgrade path for existing users of the G4DSP since it provides form, fit and function compatibility with its predecessor, ensuring that customer migration is both straightforward and cost-effective.

“A number of major military programs have adopted our G4DSP quad processor since its introduction in 2003, and the G4ADSP provides a very attractive ‘drop in’ pin-compatible, code-compatible upgrade that allows them to take advantage of the technology enhancements that have become available since then,” said Peter Cavill, General Manager, Military & Aerospace Products at GE Intelligent Platforms. “It is more important than ever that we help our customers mitigate against the impact of obsolescence and to maximize the value of their investment over the long term.”

The G4ADSP is also ‘AXIS-enabled’, meaning that it supports GE Intelligent Platforms’ AXIS Advanced Multiprocessor Integrated Software development environment. AXIS provides a quick start for application development and system evaluation with a suite of fully integrated modules for system development, visualization and deployment including example applications such as a distributed corner turn and stress tests.

AXISView provides an intuitive GUI for system visualisation and productivity tools that greatly reduce development time and time to market. AXISLib VSIPL and RSPL optimized DSP, math and function libraries provide a wide range of optimised functions for the PowerPC e600 / AltiVec platform. AXISFlow supports high through put, low latency, inter processor communication (IPC) across all system nodes to maximize system performance, and increase flexibility in the design of the most demanding signal and data processing applications.

Additional G4ADSP features include one PCI port to P0; PCI-X to all four nodes and to both PMC sites; four serial ports; and support for VxWorks from Wind River Systems. The G4ADSP is available in five ruggedness levels to allow for development in benign environments and deployment in harsh environments, maximizing cost-effectiveness.
