DSP280 is the world’s first fully rugged 6U
OpenVPX multiprocessor to bring mainstream
High Performance Computing (HPC) to
deployed defence and aerospace applications.
GE Intelligent Platforms has harnessed Intel’s
latest Quad Core i7 32nm embedded chip
set to create the ideal COTS solution to
meet the real-time performance requirements of extended intelligence, surveillance
and reconnaissance (ISR) mission profiles
across a wide range of deployed platforms
including both manned and un-manned airborne, ground and naval vehicles.
Best in class Performance
The dual Intel Quad Core i7 platform is
capable of more than 260 Gigaflops peak
performance and 21GBytes per second
main memory bandwidth with error checking
and correction (ECC). DSP280 sets the standard
for deployed DSP and multiprocessing
applications such as radar, sonar, image
and sensor processing and goes further
with 3D Graphics to support general purpose
and display processing.
Scalability for best size,
weight and power (SWaP)
The HPEC architecture can scale from one to
many CPU nodes per enclosure via two dual
port RDMA enabled network interface controllers (rNICs) delivering up to 3.7GBytes/s
data rates at less than 1µs memory to
memory latencies between nodes. In
addition, system integrators can minimize
card count by mapping multiple platform
functions such as control, DSP and graphics
onto one or more DSP280s in order to
reduce spares and simplify logistical support
in the field.
High Performance embedded
Computing (HPEC)
DSP280 is a key member of GE’s HPEC product
family which includes our new SBC624 2nd
Generation Core i7 6U OpenVPX SBC, our
latest NPN240 dual NVIDIA CUDA GPGPUs
and switch fabric modules (SFMs) such
as the GBX460 10GE card. These COTS
OpenVPX modules harness mainstream
LINUX and Windows™ platforms along with
open middlewares to deliver world class
performance at a fraction of the cost of
proprietary solutions.
AXIS Advanced Multiprocessor
Integrated Software
AXISLIB-AVX is GE’s comprehensive DSP
and math function library providing the full
VSIPL Core 1.0 profile with hand optimized
AVX support to extract game changing levels
of performance from Intel’s brand new
256bit wide SIMD AVX unit. The VSIPL API
ensures code portability across multiple
processor generations in support of
planned technology refresh during the
entire program life cycle.
AXISPRO includes a high performance IPC
middleware and GUI for task level programming and fast prototyping to reduce
development cost and shorten time to
solution of even the most complex signal
processing applications.
