Defence systems integrator C3 Inc, of Herndon, Virginia, has announced three new products based on the Sparc RISC processor from Sun Microsystems. The C3 models C3 4/110, C3 4/260 and the C3 4E are repackaged and ruggedised versions of Sun’s workstation line, designed for shipboard use, and allowing continued performance under the military standard specified Type 1 Vibrations. The C3 4/110 is based upon the Sun 4/100 series single-board Sparc processor, which includes up to 32Mb, IEEE 802.3 Ethernet, SCSI interface, two RS-423 interfaces, and a colour graphics frame buffer, all on the motherboard. The C3 4/260 product will provide CPU, 8Mb to 128Mb, operating at 10 MIPS, Ethernet, SCSI, and two RS-423 interfaces, keyboard+mouse interface, and a colour+monochrome graphics frame buffer on a 6U board set. The C3 4E product – which will not be available until the third quarter of 1989 – will come with a single-board colour+monochrome graphics frame buffer. Anticipated list prices for the 4/110, 4/260 and 4E are $49,000, $55,000, and $65,000 respectively.
