Providing High Performance Computing (HPC) to Improve Defense Intelligence Applications with Quad Core Multiprocessor

Targeted at intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) applications across a range of deployed, manned and un-manned platforms, the DSP280 brings mainstream high performance computing (HPC) to embedded mil/aero applications. It provides more performance and flexibility at reduced cost and lower technical risk to system architects tasked with delivering high resolution sensor data within actionable time frames to war fighters and commanders when they need it.

Best in Class Performance

The dual Intel Quad Core i7 platform is capable of more than 260 GigaFLOPS peak performance and 21 GBytes per second main memory bandwidth with error checking and correction (ECC). The DSP280 sets the standard for deployed DSP and multiprocessing applications such as radar, sonar, image and sensor processing and goes further with 3D graphics to support general purpose and display processing.

AXIS Advanced Multiprocessor Integrated Software

Multi-year programs can future-proof their investment in application code by using Abaco Systems' new multi-threaded VSIPL DSP and math libraries. AXISLib-AVX supports the VSIPL API with the full VSIPL Core 1.0 profile providing 600+ widely used functions that exploit Intel’s new 256-bit wide Advanced Vector Extensions SIMD unit that is available for the first time in the 2nd gen Core i7 platform.
