The DSP280 rugged, dual-socket, quad-core 6U VPX microprocessor from GE Intelligent Platforms features the second-generation Intel Core i7 chipset. The unit meets real-time demands of applications such as intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance; radar; sonar; and image and sensor processing across platforms including manned and unmanned airborne, ground, and naval vehicles. The platform is capable of more than 260 Gigaflops peak performance and delivers main memory bandwidth of up to 21 GB/s per CPU node. Its high-performance embedded computing architecture can scale from one to many processor nodes per enclosure via remote direct memory access-enabled 10 Gbit Ethernet and double data rate InfiniBand dual-port network interface cards.
