Trusted computing involves technologies protect mission-critical embedded electronics from physical and remote attacks and from hardware and software failures.
VITA 48.8 represents an approach for cooling embedded systems using an air flow through (AFT) technique that significantly reduces the SWaP-C of deployed electronics devices.
Intel Xeon D Pushes Military Applications Forward in General Purpose Processor (GPP) Technology Across the Spectrum of Defense Applications
Intel Xeon D is the first Xeon processor qualified for extended temperature ranges, offering more flexibility and higher performance than is typical for embedded products.
Helen Haxell looks at how ANSI/VITA 48.8, could soon be applied to the next-generation of aircraft, including Future Vertical Lift (FVL).
Mike Southworth looks at how the recent introduction of Intel's first Xeon System-on-a-Chip (SoC) device, the Xeon-D (codenamed "Broadwell DE"), dramatically changes the range of options for designers of high-performance small-form-factor (SFF) mission computers.
Aaron Frank and Ivan Straznicky look at VITA 47. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standard VITA 47 gives system integrators a baseline for reliable and rugged products.
The Xeon-D SoC has more cores and threads per CPU (up to 16 cores/32 threads), helping designers upgrade mission computers without the SWaP concerns.
The newly ratified ANSI/VITA 48.8 standard looks to reduce the dependence on conduction cooling for 3U and 6U circuit cards with VPX connectors.
Paul Davis looks at how CSfC allows system designers to now deploy a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution with encrypted data protection for Type 1 products reducing time and cost.
William Wong from Electronic Design looks at how the VITA 48.8 standard could revolutionize rugged and airborne systems, especially those constrained by SWaP issues.
