C3 REPACKAGES SUN 4 RISC WORKSTATIONS TO WITHSTAND SHIPBORNE RIGOURS

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.
