New Cybersecurity Features Ensure Data Protection in Critical Embedded Military Applications

Intel Xeon E-based 3U VPX SBC integrates powerful processing with advanced data security

Technical Highlights:

  • 3U VPX SBC using 8th Gen Intel Xeon E 2176M CPU
  • Integrated cybersecurity features for enhanced data protection
  • Versatile onboard I/O and mass storage resources increase design flexibility
  • Backwards-compatibility with Aitech’s C873 and C874 SBCs means cost-effective technology upgrades

Chatsworth, Calif. July 2019 – Designed to secure critical data within embedded military and defense applications, Aitech Group’s C875 uses the new 8th generation Intel Xeon E processor to provide advanced cybersecurity as well as exceptional processing performance.  As the risk of tamper attacks and theft of data continues to increase at all levels of embedded computing, the new 3U VPX SBC incorporates Aitech’s proprietary AiSecure architecture to help protect against data breaches that may occur at the system site itself.

The Intel Xeon E-2176 M 6-core (12-thread) architecture with 12 MB of Smartcache is integrated into the C875, delivering an impressive 2.7 GHz of performance that increases up to 4.4 GHz when Turbo Mode is enabled.

Further complementing its cybersecurity advantages, the rugged C875 brings with it powerful performance attributes. These include three independent Intel UHD graphics ports, an onboard Microsemi SmartFusion FPGA (with ARM core) as well as exceptional storage capacities and security options. This makes the new board ideal for a variety of harsh environment military and defense applications, including deeply embedded, real-time HPEC processing, intelligent multi-head smart displays.

Emil Kheyfets, director of military & aerospace products at Aitech Group noted, “System requirements in today’s defense applications call for both exceptional levels of performance as well as ensuring that any sensitive data collected is accessible to only those individuals who are cleared for access.  Thanks to powerful processing technologies, coupled with Aitech’s AiSecure architecture, system designers can now easily integrate multiple, cybersecurity attributes into a high performance HPEC embedded system platform.”

Built with up to 1 TB of onboard, security-enable SSD supporting Quick erase, Secure erase and data encryption per DoD AES256 as well as up to 32 GB of DDR4 RAM, the new C875 provides vast storage capacities that meet the growing library of graphics-based data intelligence applications.

The cybersecurity features on the C875 include Intel’s Trusted Platform architecture, Secure Boot and BIOS Guard based on Intel’s TXT, TPM 2.0 and BIOS security SSD.

The board’s versatile I/O includes a host of popular interfaces that meet a wide range of system requirements, with the ability to expand I/O options using the industry-standard XMC slot.  Standard I/O integrated on the SBC includes USB 3.0 and 2.0, SATA III and HDMI as well as serial and discrete I/O, RGBHV and GbE.

Complete with an 8-lane PCIe Gen 3 VPX data plane, the SBC offers a number of VITA 65 OpenVPX slot profiles to meet different configurations.  Onboard resources include Avionics and standard watchdog timers, temperature sensors, a run time clock and an elapsed time recorder.  A VITA 46.11 IPMI, PCIe NT port support and a general-purpose DMA engine round out these resources.

The board is available in both conduction and convection cooled versions and offers a range of operating temperatures, from -40°C to +85°C, depending on the cooling method.  Shock levels of OS1 and OS2 in addition to vibration levels from V1 to V3 are available, all per VITA 47.

TensorFlow to RTL with High-Level Synthesis

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

Bridging the gap from the AI and data science world to the RTL and hardware design world can be challenging. High-level synthesis (HLS) can provide a mechanism to get from AI frameworks like TensorFlow into synthesizable RTL, enabling the development of high-performance inference architectures. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Dave Apte of Cadence Design Systems about doing AI design with HLS.
