G4DSP-XE incorporates four MPC7448/47A compute nodes to provide massive signal and data processing performance. At the heart of G4DSP-XE is its AccelerX(tm) loosely coupled PCI-X architecture enabling ultra fast node-to-node communications. All other data paths including two PMC sites are independently bridged from the AccelerX ring so PCI-X speeds are maintained.
For fast interprocessor messaging, each compute node provides an interface into a central hardware message passing accelerator. This allows the fast execution of interprocessor mailbox interrupts and semaphores. Also provided is a common time base allowing messages and/or data buffers to be time-stamped, meaning that each G4DSP-XE in the system maintains the local time at the same value.
Multiboard scalability is greatly enhanced by the use of two StarFabric ports at P0. Radstone's StarSwitch can then be used to interconnect limitless G4DSP-XEs within the VME environment.
