Intel Xeon D: A Significant Leap Forward in General Purpose Processor (GPP) Technology Across the Spectrum of Defense Applications
Defense platforms and their associated physically constrained payloads have long been the limiting factor in terms of mission capability. In other words, there is a set power budget available, maximum weight and volume limits, and a xed ceiling of heat that can be removed dependent on the particular platform-based payload. Whatever processing can be performed in this xed size, weight and power (SWaP) envelope dictates and limits mission capability associated with the particular function of the payload.
