GE’s CRS 48.5 high-performance embedded computing (HPEC) rugged subsystem uses advanced VITA 48.5-compliant air-flow-through cooling to enable integration of up to eight quad-core Intel Core i7 processing nodes, dissipating 1200 W. As a result, it meets the demanding embedded computing requirements such as ISR and electronic warfare in the most severe environments. The subsystem integrates the company’s DSP280 multiprocessor with two quad-core i7 processors, capable of more than 260 GFLOPS, delivering main memory bandwidth of up to 2 Gbytes/s per CPU node. When using the more powerful DSP281 multiprocessor, total peak power exceeds 2.4 TFLOPS. There’s 6 Mbytes of shared L3 cache, 8 or 16 Gbytes of DDR3 SDRAM per CPU, and 8 or 16 Gbytes of NAND flash disk per CPU. Also included is up to 8 Tbytes of solid-state-disk memory. The dataplane is a fully-managed 10 Gigabit Ethernet switch (GBX460); up to four Fiber 10 Gigabit Base-SR ports are available.
