Abaco Systems announces a multimillion dollar design win with a $1.75mm value per year, and a lifetime potential of $3.8m including 50 units of the RM921NB and 100 units of the XVR19. The prime will integrate the SBC and switch in their design of a radio frequency system which will perform electronic warfare testing on ground based systems to support flight line crews on F-22 and F-35 aircrafts.
After a competitive selection process, Abaco’s XVR19, a rugged single board computer with Intel Xeon E3-1505M v6 processor, and RM921NB, a fully managed IPv6 12- or 24 port front I/O Gigabit Ethernet switch were chosen. Because both products were already in full production Abaco was able to provide the customer with access to loaner equipment allowing development to commence immediately.
The extended life cycle of both the XVR19 and the RM921NB, combined with the RM921NB's ability to support both 12 and 24 port Ethernet switch configurations that simultaneously support both optical and copper Ethernet interfaces, were leading factors in Abaco winning this award. The XVR19 provides both increased processor performance and storage with extended longevity enhanced by Abaco’s industry-leading Product Lifecycle Management programme. The RM921NB Ethernet Switch can be fully managed and easily deployed with high performance architecture and a multilayer switching fabric – providing a rich feature set, broad functionality, scalability, and product life longevity.
Peter Thompson, Vice President, Product Management of Abaco Systems, Inc. said, “Abaco is known for developing products with a focus on longevity while simultaneously reducing costs for our customers. It is always our goal to deliver innovative solutions which meet our customer’s needs and allow them to succeed. The XVR19 and RM921NB do just that and are evidence of our ongoing commitment to supporting warfighters on land, air and sea through their use on an electronic warfare application.”
