PPC8A is the latest technology insert step on the PowerXpress roadmap. Technology Insertion underpins GE Intelligent Platform’s product strategy, allowing enhanced performance and functionality from successive boards in each product family, yet all delivered with the same hardware and software interface definitions.
For example, the PPC8A’s pin-out is fully compatible with that of its PowerXpress predecessors (the PPC6 and PPC1A). And the same Board Support Package (BSP) and Deployed Test Software, runs on all 3 boards. This unique commitment to compatibility makes GE Intelligent Platform the supplier of choice to system integrators in defense markets worldwide.
Cost-effective PowerXpress boards target ‘sheltered’ applications, where expensive ‘full ruggedization’ is not required (e.g. Naval, Ground Mobile).
Mission-critical services deliver far beyond the PPC8A itself, and include long-term support, configuration control and obsolescence management.
Enhanced features, built above proven core technology, offer the widest design options to new programs and to existing PowerXpress users needing a seamless upgrade. The latest G4+ PowerPC silicon, extra serial ports, Gigabit Ethernet, and USB are all additional to the PPC6 profile.
