The RIOV-2478 is a CES 3U OpenVPX™ Single Board Computer for airborne applications requiring conduction-cooled equipment. It is specifically designed for the most demanding applications, combining very high computing and flight-worthiness capabilities along with harsh environment criteria.
The RIOV-2478 is the second generation of CES 3U OpenVPX™ PowerPC computing platforms. It combines a multi-core processor with modern interconnect high-speed links and an onboard Crosspoint switch. It features a QorIQ™ P3/P4 processor designed for combined data and control plane processing. The processor design is well suited for applications, which are highly compute-intensive, I/O intensive or both. The crosspoint switch permits flexibility of the payload profile configuration in accordance to OpenVPX™, therefore allowing support of PCIe, GbE and 10GbE over VPX and XMC.
An Advanced Board Management Controller (aBMC) is implemented for event logging and other supporting tasks.
