Sarsen Technology News July Round-up


This summer Sarsen is looking forward to a busy couple of months, with a number of exciting visits on the calendar. Despite the busy schedule however, the Sarsen team will still be here to talk about embedded application requirements.

4th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 Haswell processor-based 6U VPX module

The XCalibur4540 is a high-performance, 6U OpenVPX™ multiprocessing single board computer based on a fourth generation Intel® Core™ i7 Haswell processor.

With four 10GB ethernet ports on the data plane and a configurable x16 Gen3- capable PCI Express expansion plane interface, the XCalibur4540 delivers performance and efficiency for embedded computing applications.

Wind River VxWorks and Linux Board Support Packages (BSPs) are available, as well as Microsoft Windows drivers.

Multi-Mission COTS/MOTS SWaP-C rugged computer from Ecrin offers plenty of options

This year, ECRIN Systems will continue to capitalize on the sucess of ONYX, with a host of new variants and features:

  • New AMD E8860 or E6760 GPGPU, up to 768 GFLOPS intensive computing (80W)
  • Up to two HD-SDI (SMPTE 292M) digital video inputs
  • H.264/AVC encoding and streaming capability

The ONYX from Ecrin Systems is a small form factor, MIL-STD-810G/MIL-STD-461F certified fanless computer which employs leading edge dual or quad-core Intel® Core™ i7 3rd & 4th Gen processing capabilities to meet a wide variety of mission requirements, and is ideal for high performance harsh environmental and space constrained applications.

High-voltage 48-channel digital input board

The DNx-DIO-449 from United Electronic Industries (UEI) is a 48-channel, high-performance AC and DC digital input board designed for use in a wide variety of digital monitoring applications.

The inputs are divided into two 24-bit ports, each of which presents data in a 24-bit read. This simplifies programming and maximises throughput. The board reads all 48 bits at sustained rates in excess of 1kS/second. Automatic change-of-state (COS) detection is available with 200μS time stamp accuracy.

The board is compatible with all of UEI’s popular Cube, RACKtangle and FlatRACK chassis.

24-bit, 12-channel Delta-Sigma analog input module with IEPE transducer support

The 12-channel PCIe-24DSI12WRCIEPE analog input module from General Standards provides high-density 24-bit IEPE analog input resources on a standard PCI Express module.

Optimised for flexibility and performance, the board is ideal for a wide variety of applications, ranging from IEPE transducer inputs and precision voltage measurements, to the analysis of complex acoustic signals and waveforms.

New open architecture advancements are enabling military computer system designers to place an ever increasing amount of computational capability into space and weight optimised airborne...
