GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms has developed DSP220 6U VXS (VITA 41.2) quad 8641/8641D multicomputer.
Featuring four single- or dual core Freescale PowerPC 8641 system-on-chip nodes and a VITA 42.2-compliant XMC slot, the DSP220 is available in six ruggedisation levels including air-, spray- and conduction-cooled for extended temperature operation as well as resistance to shock and vibration. The DSP220 has already been selected for several major international military programs.
Designed for a broad range of applications such as land-mobile, airborne fixed- and rotary wing and naval surface- and underwater platforms that require high performance COTS multiprocessors and providing the optimum platform for GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms’ AXIS (Advanced Multiprocessor Integrated Software) environment, DSP220-based solutions can be scaled up to eighty 8641 nodes per chassis for the most demanding environments.
The DSP220 derives its high performance from a number of key features. Each PowerPC e600 core is clocked at 1 GHz and each 8641 node supports two banks of DDR2 SDRAM with 256 MB per bank, 2 GB total per card, as standard.
Up to 8 GB SDRAM per board is optionally available. PowerPC AltiVec support for advanced vector and floating point operations is provided by each processor core.
The multi fabric data plane interfaces include Tundra Serial RapidIO to all 8641 nodes, XMC site and the system backplane along with two Gigabit Ethernet ports to all nodes and off board for optimum system throughput.
System management and additional data movement options are supported over the VME64 2eSST interface. VxWorks and LynxOS board support packages are available.
GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms offers many types of I/O, single board computers, high performance signal processors, fully integrated and rugged systems.
