The GE Intelligent Platforms DSP281 is a rugged 2nd generation, COTS multiprocessor that brings data center performance and scalability to deployed defense and aerospace applications.

Designed for size, weight and power (SWaP) sensitive applications, GE's high performance embedded computing (HPEC) platforms deliver expanded mission capabilities across a wide range of manned- and un-manned, airborne, ground and naval platforms.

The DSP281 delivers more performance per card slot by expanding system bandwidth with the Intel ® 4th gen quad Core™ i7, up to 32GBytes DDR3 1600 main memory per processor, inter-node DMA over PCIe™ gen 3 and OFED RDMA InfiniBand or Ethernet data plane via the latest Mellanox ConnectX™-3 network interface controllers (rNICs).

GE fully exploits Intel's hyper-threaded multi-core platform with AXIS Advanced Multiprocessor Integrated Software. Developers can optimize and scale application across GE's 3U and 6U OpenVPX HPEC solution sets that include Ethernet and InfiniBand Switch Fabric Modules, GPGPU processors, Single Board Computers and I/O modules.
