Application-ready platform choices expand rugged application possibilities - Story

July 04, 2015
Defense OEMs must find a way to cost-effectively meet mounting data throughput and processing needs with commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) platforms in smaller form factors. Application-ready systems that have been ruggedized for reliability in extreme military settings instill confidence with high availability by effectively addressing the significant power densities generated at the board, chassis, and system levels.

Mainstream IT-based HPEC technologies come of age - Story

December 10, 2014
High-performance embedded computing (HPEC) is moving from the data center into the field of combat. Mainstream HPEC building blocks can reduce costs for these applications while providing ultrafast backplane speeds in a much smaller footprint and easily accommodating new proof-of-concept requirements.

Microprocessor-based VPX platforms enable advanced signal processing - Story

January 17, 2014
Improved power-to-performance ratios with multicore processors in VPX systems are boosting viability and reducing reliance on the high costs of FPGA development. Since they fundamentally change the way signal processing is implemented, parallel-rate microprocessors do away with hand-coding threads and math algorithms and more efficiently bring together powerful computing platforms that can take full advantage of state-of-the-art processor features.
