CRX800 is the world’s first COTS, VITA 41.2
compliant, Serial RapidIO (sRIO) switch card from
GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms aimed at rugged,
deployed defense and aerospace applications.
Designed to support a wide range of multiprocessor system configurations, CRX800 offers
un-paralleled flexibility and performance by
exploiting the 80 Gbits/s aggregate bandwidth of
Tundra’s Tsi578 third generation switch.
CRX800 supports the full VITA 41.2 compliment
of 18 payload and 4 inter-switch ports and goes
further to support the full system bandwidth from
chassis to chassis via an optional, x4, sRIO fiber
optic front panel interface.
All Serial RapidIO ports are x4 lanes with all lanes
capable of up to 3.125 GHz operation.
Layered software support for GE Fanuc’s BuiltIn-Test (BIT) for PowerPC® and VxWorks® board
support package (BSP) with an open API to the
switch management layer is standard.
CRX800 is designed to work with our market
leading DSP220 VITA 41.2 quad MPC8641D
multiprocessor scaling to 72 processing nodes
per enclosure.
Multi-processor support includes our AXIS
Advanced Multiprocessor Integrated Software
suite of fully integrated modules for system development, visualization and deployment running on
DSP220 with support for the sRIO system fabric.
AXISView provides an intuitive GUI for system
visualization and productivity tools that greatly
reduce development time and shorten time
to market.
AXISLib VSIPL and RSPL optimised math and function libraries provide a wide range of optimized
functions for the PowerPC AltiVec platform.
AXISFlow supports high throughput, low latency,
inter processor communication (IPC) across all
system nodes to maximize system performance
and flexibility.
