AMETEK Abaco Systems Boosts Processing Performance and Bandwidth in New SBC3513 Single Board Computer


WASHINGTON— October 10, 2022 AMETEK Abaco Systems has introduced the SBC3513 3U OpenVPX single board computer (SBC) aligned with the Sensor Open Systems Architecture™ (SOSA) technical standard at the AUSA Annual Meeting and Exposition. Offering increased processing performance and bandwidth over previous models, the SOSA-aligned I/O-intensive SBC features the new Intel® Xeon® W processor, formerly known as Tiger Lake H. With eight cores operating at 2.6GHz, it offers 64 GBytes of DDR4 RAM and up to 480 GBytes of nVME SSD.  

Designed with a data plane supporting 100GbE and PCIe Gen4 to the backplane, the rugged, commercial-off-the-shelf SBC3513 is well suited for demanding command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (C4ISR) and industrial applications. 

“The SBC3513 is a technology insertion for our popular SBC3511 and offers many of its features, but with enhanced performance and speed capabilities,” said Mike Underwood, Abaco division vice president and business unit manager. “It is another great example of how Abaco provides our customers the ability to seamlessly integrate new, higher performance hardware technologies while retaining form, fit and function and maintaining application software compatibility.” 

Like the SBC3511, the new SBC offers on-board Xilinx Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC’s built-in security capabilities, including an unclonable function (PUF), user-accessible hardened cryptographic blocks, asymmetric authentication, side channel attack protection, and other silicon-based AT features. It also features a thermal management design which allows deterministic performance even at extended temperatures typical of deployment on space-constrained platforms.
