Top-performing SBCs offer lower power consumption

07-08-2018 | Aitech | Semiconductors

Aitech Defense Systems has integrated the ultra-low power T4xx1 processor family from NXP into four of its high-performing SBCs. By further decreasing power consumption within the board itself, the company helps designers reach the challenges of SWaP-C optimisation through some rugged and mobile environments.

Emil Kheyfets, director, M&A Product Management, Aitech Defense Systems, noted, “Our customers face new and challenging design obstacles every day. As system size shrinks and electronics density increases, it’s our job to provide solutions to solve these challenges, while keeping costs in line with budget requirements. Developing a range of powerful multicore SBCs with cost-effective, lower cost-per-watt options enables them to meet the thermal profiles of today’s highly integrated, embedded systems.”

To give the most versatility in design options, the company has implemented NXP’s new, low-power T4xx1 series, on the company’s QorIQ-based SBCs.

The T4xx1 Series is 100% software compatible with the original T4xx0 family, meaning designers can use either on the Aitech COTS SBCs, depending on their application requirements. The low-power processors provide an extended temperature range of -40C to 105C on all 1.8GHz speed bins as well as thermal power reduction of up to 21% depending on the device and speed bin selected.

By providing greater energy efficiencies, the SBCs maximise available system power, while meeting the throughput and peak performance demands of modern embedded applications.
