PPC8A is the latest technology insert step on the PowerXpress roadmap. Technology Insertion underpins Radstone'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 three boards. This unique commitment to compatibility makes Radstone 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).
