Supercomputer Technology Reports for Duty
High-performance embedded computing (HPEC) brings supercomputer technology to the mil/aero domain, delivering incredible performance in deployable designs. With the launch of the 4th generation Intel Core processor family, HPEC systems are achieving breakthrough performance, with over 2x to 4x faster signal processing while reducing size, weight, and power, and cost (SWAP-C). This paper examines the features of the new processor and shows how they can be used for HPEC. It will also demonstrate how a single 16-slot OpenVPX chassis can achieve over 19 trillion floating-point operations per second (TFLOPS) while offering a 4x improvement in PCI Express (PCIe) backplane performance.
