GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms has announced the CRX800, an innovative VXS (VITA41.2) compliant Serial RapidIO managed switch card.
Designed to provide optimal support for VXS multi board applications – using the GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms DSP220 VXS quad 8641 processor or alternative multiprocessor systems - the CRX800 offers eighteen x4 Serial RapidIO (sRIO) payload ports, four x4 sRIO inter-switch ports and a PowerPC MPC8548 management processor, which supports 128Mbytes of Flash memory and 256Mbytes of SDRAM for unsurpassed data throughput at up to 3.125GHz per lane.
The CRX800, which is designed for a wide range of deployed signal- and data processing applications for land-mobile, airborne fixed- and rotary wing, and naval surface and underwater platforms, 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 Tundra Tsi-578Serial RapidIO implementation supports operation speeds of 1.25GHz, 2.5GHz and 3.125GHz per lane, while the onboard management CPU supports not only sRIO configuration, but also BIT (built-in test) and switch management application software.
GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms offers many types of I/O, single board computers, high performance signal processors, fully integrated and rugged systems.
