SBCs Exploit Core i7 Processor

Three single board computers (SBCs) based on the latest Intel Core i7 processor with operating at speeds up to 2.53 GHz consist of the 6U VME VR12, 6U CompactPCI CR12, and the 6U VME XVB601. The SBCs target demanding applications such as radar processing and flight control as well as general-purpose industrial and commercial system-level applications. The VR12 and CR12 also feature two XMC expansion sites in a true single-slot format. Each of the boards supports up to 8 GB of DDR3 SDRAM with ECC. Connectivity on the VR12 includes two front Gigabit Ethernet ports, two Gigabit Ethernet ports, VGA, five USB ports, two DVI ports, three SATA ports, and two COM ports. It is available in five ruggedization levels, from benign/office to fully rugged convection cooled. The CR12 is identical to the VR12 except that it is a CompactPCI SBC. The XVB601 features dual on-board expansion slots with provision for one PCI-X PMC/x4 PCI Express XMC card and one PCI-X PMC board. Connectivity includes two Gigabit Ethernet ports, VGA, eight USB ports, DVI, and three COM ports. GE FANUC INTELLIGENT PLATFORMS, Charlottesville, VA. (434) 978-5000.
