Abaco Systems brings supercomputing performance to harsh environments
The CRS 48.5 is a complete, integrated, pre-tested, ready-to-run HPEC rugged subsystem enabling faster development/deployment at lower cost and risk using the most advanced VITA 48.5 compliant air-flowthrough cooling to allow the integration of up to eight quad core Intel® Core™ i7 processing nodes. This makes it capable of satisfying the most rugged embedded computing requirements such as ISR and electronic warfare in the harshest, most challenging environments. A broad range of highly flexible configurations is available.
CRS 48.5 uses advanced cooling technology to bring data center performance to the battlefield
The CRS 48.5 HPEC rugged subsystem is among the first commercially available solutions with advanced air-flowthrough cooling (can handle up to 1200 Watts) as specified by the VITA standard. This technology overcomes the thermal challenges inherent in very high performance embedded computing subsystems, and means that military and aerospace organizations can deploy more computing capability into harsher environments than ever before.
Supported by AXIS Advanced Multiprocessor Integrated Software
As with the entire range of Abaco Systems’ HPEC solutions, the CRS 48.5 is supported by the AXISPro advanced multiprocessor application development environment designed to enable rapid application development, multi-core optimization and scalability across a range of processor architectures.
Open Standard Middleware Enables New Classes of HPEC Solutions
Commercial supercomputing and server farms have much to offer high performance embedded computing (HPEC) applications not only in terms of hardware, but also in terms of software. The capabilities available to embedded developers are described in this paper.
