Rancho Cugamonga, CA, United States, 2009/03/05 - GMS, has introduced the Raider a new rugged, ultra-small, Core 2 Duo-based system - GMS4sbc.com.
General Micro Systems, Inc. (GMS), designer and manufacturer of embedded computing products for defense, aerospace and compute-intensive applications, and the leader in high-end Pentium® processors since 1986, has introduced the “Raider” (S705) a new rugged, ultra-small, Core 2 Duo®-based system. During contract bids for an undisclosed UAV contract, the S705 was chosen over competing rugged systems as delivering the During contract bids for an undisclosed UAV contract, the Raider was chosen over competing systems as delivering the highest processing power per cubic inch, per watt highest processing power per cubic inch, per watt in the world.
“Raider” has a Core 2 Duo processor providing up to 2.16 GHz of power and 4 MB of L2 Cache, and up to 2 GB of 667 MHz DDR-2SDRAM. The S705 is available in a variety of configurations to be completely upgradeable and compatible along the Intel® migration path.
Array of application possibilities comes from “Raider’s” capacity to support five different expansion buses, a range of I/O, and numerous video/audio options. Adding to the system’s versatility is its super-small envelope (single drive is 4.6 x 4.6 x 1.6 inches, weighing only 2 lbs.) and low power requirements (as low as 15 watts total).
“Raider” supports up to six wireless radios on four to six antennae feeds. This built-in functionality enables simultaneous monitoring and tracking of phone, wireless, CDMA, TDMA, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth or others. Other key features are Dual GigE with TCP/IP offloading engine, high-performance video, Dual Com ports with 232/422, four USB ports, full audio for VOIP applications, full BIT and EBIT testing, and thermal management for safe thermal operation.
“Raider” designed for rugged environments (-40C to +85C, MIL-STD 810F), operates from a single voltage source (+16 to +28VDC) - ideal for demanding applications such as the UAV contract for which it was originally designed. Two optional 256 GB solid-state disks can be fixed or removable, offering the ability to store 1/2 Terabyte of acquired data for security purposes in sensitive operations.
”Developed for the demanding requirements of a specific UAV, the Raider is now being considered as an upgrade in several existing programs exploring weight and power reduction while needing increased performance,” said Ben Sharfi, president of GMS. “Its half terabyte of storage accommodates vast amounts of mapping and guidance data.”
