March 17, 2011 Delivering on promises takes more than the latest technology. It takes a company. GE. GE Intelligent Platforms specializes in the design and manufacture of single board computers (SBCs) tailored to meet the computing and ruggedization needs of our customers. The SBC626 and SBC346, our latest rugged 6U and 3U OpenVPX single board computers, feature the quad-core 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor. They, along with our broad range of SBCs based on the second and third generation Intel Core i7 dual- or quad-core processors, provide outstanding performance per watt while helping to minimize size, weight and power (SWaP) in deployed subsystems – making them ideal for constrained environments such as manned- and unmanned vehicles. GE makes available a range of new products based on 4th generation Intel Core i7 processors in several architectures and form factors, including rugged 3U and 6U VPX, and 6U VME single board computers and a dual processor multiprocessor. All these new systems will deliver enhanced processor performance, enhanced graphics performance, superior connectivity and improved security – but within the same power envelope as previous generations. These improved capabilities will allow these new products not only to address existing command/control applications, but to be deployed in more demanding signal processing applications such as ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance), sonar and radar. These new products are also in line with GE’s continuing commitment to maximizing the value of customers’ investments; the new products are form, fit and function compatible with earlier models, providing GE’s customers with a straightforward, cost-effective technology insertion opportunity that enable customer systems to benefit from Intel’s newest processors.
