The SBC329 Rugged Single Board Computer (SBC) from Abaco Systems features the high performance, highly integrated 7th Generation Intel Core processor platform.

The Intel Xeon processor offers integrated graphics and memory controller plus quad core processing up to 3.0 GHz all in one device. Coupled with the CM238 chipset, this provides an upgraded level of I/O bandwidth for both on-board and off‑board functions.

Features of the 7th Gen Core Technology

  • Graphics support for DX11.1, OpenCL 1.2, OpenGL 3.2
  • CPU performance boost over previous generation
  • Intel TurboBoost Technology
  • Intel AVX 2.0 extensions and AES‑NI instructions
  • Hardware-assisted security features
  • Hyper-Threading Technology – two threads per core

In addition to a comprehensive range of onboard I/O features, the SBC329 also offers an on-board mezzanine expansion site for enhanced system flexibility. Memory resources include 16 GB DDR4 SDRAM, up to 32 GB NAND Flash (SSD), 32 MB BIOS Flash and 16 MB BIOS backup Flash.

Designed to meet the requirements of a wide range of applications from industrial through to fully rugged defense and aerospace programs, the SBC329 offers extended temperature capability and a range of air- and conduction-cooled build levels.

The SBC329 also incorporates a range of security features designed to assist with customers’ Anti-Tamper and Information Assurance strategies. These include an inherently secure FPGA solution, and support for Intel’s Trusted Execution Technology.

A rich software choice is planned for the SBC329, including:

  • AMI UEFI including support of BIOS Guard for signed image execution
  • FSP* enabled coreboot (Open Source bootloader)
  • Open Linux (Fedora), Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Wind River Linux, VxWorks 7, Windows 10
  • Comprehensive Deployed Test Software: FSP* enabled BIT (PBIT function), and BCS (CBIT and IBIT function)
  • P2P (PCIe Peer-to-Peer protocol) for VxWorks and Linux
  • AXIS environment for App optimization over many node / many channels, and including signal processing / vector math libraries

Examples and assistance are also available for integrating ‘chain of trust’ operation (from power-up to application start), plus Wind River’s FSP* enabled VxWorks Boot Loader, into system scenarios. Other Operating System support is available on request.

Abaco Systems (formerly GE Intelligent Platforms)

For 12 years, we were the embedded computing business of GE Intelligent Platforms - itself formed from a series fo acquisitions of market-leading embedded computing companies. 

The entire GE Intelligent Platforms team, around 700 people - made the transition from GE, meaning that our customers continue to deal with people with whom they've had relationships for years and in some cases, decades. 

Also making the transition from Ge are the robust, repeatable business processes for which the company is renowned - but these are now finely-tuned to the specific needs of our embedded computing customers.

We have brought with us from GE an absolute, all-overriding commitment to ethics. That commitment is fundamental and central to all our interactions with you. Trust is paramount to all our relationships. 

Abaco Systems products and solutions can be found in many high profile military/aerospace sea, land and air programs, as well as in commercial and industrial organizations in which rugged reliability is mission-critical. 

Abaco Systems is a global leader in open architecture rugged embedded systems. Spun out of GE in 2015 we combine the attitude and customer focus of a startup with 30 years of experience delivering rugged embedded computing products and solutions.
