Quad Core HPEC Platform for military systems

GE Fanuc Embedded Systems : 11 September, 2013  (New Product)
High performance embedded computing platform developed by GE based on 4th generation Intel Core i7 chip sets
Quad Core HPEC Platform for military systems

GE Intelligent Platforms has announced the DSP281 at the IEEE HPEC Conference (Waltham, MA: 10-12 September). A rugged dual node quad core 6U OpenVPX High Performance Embedded Computing (HPEC) deployed server platform, the DSP281 is the third in a new family of products from GE to harness the increased performance of 4th generation Intel Core i7 (‘Haswell’) chip sets.

Designed for a broad range of mission-critical intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) and image-, signal- and data processing applications, the DSP281 brings more than double the theoretical peak performance of its predecessor within the same size, weight and power (SWaP) envelope. Deployed on manned- and un-manned airborne, ground and naval platforms, it can enable optimum benefit to be derived from the significant volume of data obtained from large numbers of high resolution sensors by providing meaningful information in an actionable time frame to decision makers and military personnel across an asymmetric, dynamic and rapidly-changing threat landscape.

The DSP281 is a software-compatible upgrade to the DSP280, which was based on a dual Intel Core-i7 processor architecture, and provides defense and aerospace prime contractors, systems integrators, OEMs and end users with a clear, cost-effective path to increased mission capability through planned technology refresh across a wide range of platforms.

It also brings high levels of data security with GE’S new on-board Security Hub and full support for the latest Intel platform security features.

“Since the GE DSP280 platform was announced two years ago, the nature and complexity of the threats faced by military organizations around the world has continued to evolve at a rapid rate,” said Michael Stern, Global Product Manager for Military & Aerospace High Performance Embedded Computing at GE Intelligent Platforms. “The DSP281 responds to this in two key ways. Not only does it offer significantly enhanced processing performance, but it also takes advantage of the increasing availability of software tools, expertise and experience coming from commercial high performance computing (HPC) data centers. This makes the DSP281 not just a very powerful solution, but also one that minimizes risk, cost and time-to-market.”

GE’s HPEC architecture, as implemented in the DSP281, can scale from one to many processor nodes per enclosure via RDMA-enabled InfiniBand® and Ethernet dual port network interface cards, delivering very high interprocessor bandwidth at extremely low memory to memory latencies. In addition, system integrators can minimize card count by mapping multiple platform functions such as control, DSP, image and video processing and graphics onto one or more DSP281s in order to reduce spares and simplify logistical support in the field.

The DSP281 is supported by GE’s unique AXIS Advanced Multiprocessor Integrated Software development environment. AXISPro includes a high performance IPC middleware and GUI for task level programming and fast prototyping to reduce development cost and shorten time to solution of multi-core, multi-threaded and multi-node distributed system architectures across multiple operating systems including Linux, Windows and VxWorks and includes quick start signal and image processing examples to further accelerate time-to-solution.
