The DSP280 is a rugged dual socket quad core 6U VPX multiprocessor, the fifth new product from GE to harness the extraordinary performance of the 2nd generation Intel Core i7 chip set. It is designed to meet the rigorous real-time demands of applications such as ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance), radar, sonar, and image and sensor processing across a wide range of deployed platforms including manned and unmanned airborne, ground and naval vehicles. It is expected that High Performance Embedded Computing (HPEC) solutions using the DSP80 will be deployed to enable the near real time delivery of theater data of actionable quality to command/control centers.
The dual quad core platform is capable of more than 260 Gigaflops peak performance and delivers main memory bandwidth of up to 21 GBytes/second per CPU node. Its HPEC architecture can scale from one to many processor nodes per enclosure via RDMA-enabled 10 Gigabit Ethernet and Double Data Rate (DDR) InfiniBand dual port NICs, delivering up to 1.8 GBytes/second data rates per channel with memory-to-memory latencies of approximately 1µs. 16 GBytes of solid state disk, can obviate the need for traditional hard dick drives.
Support for 3D high-resolution graphics further enhances the utility and flexibility of the DSP280, widening its potential application footprint.
For optimum support of multi-year programs with planned technology refresh of the hardware platform, the DSP280 takes advantage of GE’s AXISLib to provide outstanding DSP performance with VSIPL API for code portability. 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.
