[DesignNews] Single Board Computer with 2nd Generation Intel Core I7 Processors - Page 2

post #11 of 19
I've been to a research observatory still using a 1980's era running Solaris to operate the telescope, so hopefully NASA is ahead of this .

Not really.... Reliability and robustness are much more important than cutting-edge... especially when lives depend on it.


The Columbia exploded in 2003 and it was using a 400MB Seagate 2.5" HDD from 1995.

Also the fact that they have the money spent on paper so far in advance. Freaking UAV roadmap spans from 2005-2030, for example.

Wow, I'm adding "Single Board Computer" to my vocabulary. This looks really cool! I guess you would need something like this for any type of compact or mobile piece of machinery which makes complex computations - like a UAV.

What else would something like this be used for?

In the attack drones we have, maybe, but coming from the USAF I was working around Pentium 4 tech most of the time. It was nothing like what I had expected to see. I had expected to see **** that was so mind blowing that you'd think you were in some kind of sci-fi universe. Nope, nothing like it in the sort. Consistently using massively outdated components that could hardly run Vista better than the average home computer.

Yet surprisingly, AMD contracts with the USAF and so the majority of their machines use old AMD tech. Such as the first generation Phenom processors and such. Since they're all used for basic programs, they're blazing fast. smart tactic really. Though the really crazy stuff you'd see is in the rooms and houses of the airmen and sergeants that you work with. I couldn't count how many different monster machines I came across. They all have some kind of alienware level laptop or phase change cooled system. It was cool while it lasted.

It's not a code-name anymore.

Usually they interface with a backplane, if you've ever seen those servers with all PCI slots across the back and no IO panel area... this is what was inside. They can also usually run stand alone without a backplane.

Backplane example:



The SBC plugs in on the long double slot on the left and interfaces with the rest of the board. Folder's dream? LOL.
