New single board computer for VXS-based systems

Abaco Systems has announced the DSP221, the newest NXP QorIQ based product to join the company's rugged 6U VME and VXS range of single board computers.

It provides high speed Ethernet fabric support with a technological refresh and represents a move from a single core processor to a modern multi core power architecture processor. This technology refresh reduces power consumption by over half compared to the previous DSP220.

The DSP221 incorporates the high performance T2081 processor and is designed specifically for harsh environments. It is intended for a wide range of applications demanding reliability, such as critical industrial, aerospace and defence applications. It is available in air-cooled ruggedization levels, offering a clear path for new customers and existing DSP220 users looking to modernise existing systems.

The DSP221 is a 6U VXS single board computer with Power Architecture AMP CPU with eight e6500 virtual cores (4 cores, dual threaded with AltiVec co-processing). It includes 8 GB DDR3 SDRAM with ECC Single Bank, 512MB NOR Flash, 32GB NAND Flash solid-state drive, 512 kB non-volatile nvSRAM, 2x independent PMC/XMC sites, 2x 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet, 2x RS232 ports, 4x single-ended GPIO (5V tolerant), and has a Baseboard Management Module (BMM).

Standard software options including Uboot, PBIT, CIBIT, and VxWorks 7 (SR0630).
