Technology Review: 3rd Generation Intel Core i7 SBCs

Our four new rugged single board computers (SBC) based on 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ technology (a.k.a. Ivy Bridge) bring substantially increased processing power, graphics capability, I/O bandwidth and functional density to customers developing and deploying demanding industrial and mil/aero applications – including command/control, ISR (intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance), radar/sonar and signal processing.


These new platforms – which are 100% compatible with their predecessors, making for a cost-effective, straightforward upgrade path for existing users – will deliver up to 15% greater computational horsepower, and up to 50% improved 3D graphics performance. Some of these new COTS boards offer support for USB 3.0 and provide up to 10x the data transfer throughput of USB 2.0. Power consumption/heat dissipation are identical to preceding products, providing attractive performance/watt and making the new boards ideal for environments that are SWaP (size, weight and power) constrained.
