XPedite7674 supports LynxSecure Safety Bundle for Intel Multi-core Processorsto deliver integrated hardware/software IMA development

Middleton, Wisconsin and San Jose, California, 25th July 2018 – Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) today announced the integration of its secure-by-design XPedite7674 board with the LynxSecure Safety Bundle (LSB) from Lynx Software Technologies, the world leader in open, mixed criticality and MILS system development. The integration delivers an ideal platform for 2nd generation IMA development.

LSB is an open system architecture solution that unlocks the potential of multi-core processors such as the Intel® Xeon® D to deliver 2nd generation Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA). Lynx and X-ES have created a Board Support Package (BSP) for LSB on XPedite7674, a family of rugged single-board computers for military and aerospace embedded computing applications offering up to 16 processor cores and extended-temperature support, designed with X-ES’ SecureCOTStm technology.

Aaron Lindner, Director of Engineering at Extreme Engineering Solutions said, “The announcement by Lynx of the LynxSecure Safety Bundle represents an exciting shift in avionics system design, reducing the time, cost, and design risk associated with developing, certifying, and sustaining mixed criticality avionics designs on complex multi-core architectures. X-ES is proud to lead the way in supporting LSB on XPedite7674, an industry leading secure-by-design, high performance, rugged multiprocessing single board computer.”

Commenting, Lee Cresswell, Vice President of Global Sales at Lynx Software Technologies, said, “With the release of a board support package for this popular hardware platform, customers can start immediate development of IMA designs based on LSB. Together, Lynx LSB and X-ES XPedite7674 offer customers an open development capability in which they can run bare metal, LynxOS-178, Linux or other RTOS or OS-based system modules or applications together, residing safely and securely in a single multi-core time and space partitioned system. The XPedite7674 is a perfect environment within which to experience the open architecture and complete flexibility that LSB offers.”

The LynxSecure Safety Bundle (LSB) integrates the complete range of system development services for platform suppliers to build, deploy and sustain their 2nd generation IMA platform.

The XPedite7674 is a high-performance, 3U VPX-REDI, single board computer based on the Xeon® D processor. The Intel® Xeon® D processor can provide up to 16 Xeon®-class cores in a single, power-efficient System-on-Chip (SoC) package with native extended temperature support for up to 12 core-count SKUs.The XPedite7674 provides secure network interfaces by providing one 1000BASE-X Gigabit Ethernet interface from the FPGA and passing two CPU 10 Gigabit 10GBASE-KR Ethernet interfaces through the FPGA. It also supports a user-configurable Xilinx Kintex® UltraScale™ FPGA for hosting custom functions to protect data from being modified or observed and provides an ideal solution when stringent security capabilities are required.
