Designed for military and avionics platforms requiring high density communications and performance in SWaP-constrained environments, a Quad Core Power PC, 3U cPCI COTS SBC has been introduced by North Atlantic Industries (NAI).
Powered by NXP’s 1.2 GHz Quad QorIQ P2041 PowerPC processor, the 75PPC1-FT3-AR1 is configured with quad channel, dual redundant, MIL-STD-1553B and 12-channel ARINC 429/575 Tx/Rx communications bus ports. This 3U cPCI rugged SBC leverages NAI’s modular COTS products built on an open systems architecture allowing technology insertion and conforms to all open standards.
Lino Massafra, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, NAI, commented: “The 75PPC1-FT3-AR1 tests the boundaries of high performance computation in small form factor, rugged defence products while maximising MIL-STD-1553B and ARINC 429/575 communications in a single 3U slot. This is just one of the numerous solutions NAI provides that drastically lowers programme risk and reduces operating costs in processing and avionics communications applications.”
The 75PPC1-FT3-AR1 supports up to 8GB DDR3L SDRAM, up to 32GB SATA II NAND Flash, two Gig-E ports, Wind River Linux or VxWorks, operation from -40 to +85°C and continuous background built-in-test.
Avaiable in conduction- and air-cooled versions, pricing for the 75PPC1-FT3-AR1 starts at $12,784 in quantities of 100 or more.
