OpenVPX Modules with 8-core Intel Xeon W-11000E Series Processors

The VPX6-1961 Single Board Computer from Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions is built with the latest Intel Xeon W-11000E Series processor for high performance over extreme temperature, shock, and vibration conditions for military applications By DA Reporter / 13 Aug 2021

Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions division has announced that its VPX6-1961 Single Board Computer (SBC) will feature the new Intel Xeon W-11000E Series processor. The VPX6-1961 harnesses the extended operating performance of the Intel Xeon W-11000E to deliver an SBC capable of delivering the highest performance over extreme temperature, shock, and vibration conditions, as required by defense and aerospace applications. 

Doubling the count of previous generation quad-core processors with its eight cores, this 6U OpenVPX module leverages the latest Intel Core architectures to deliver high performance processing.

The module’s additional processor cores enable system designers to reduce their platform’s size, weight, power, and cost. Processing tasks that would formerly require multiple SBCs can now be consolidated into a single slot. 

The VPX6-1961 also provides enterprise-class virtualization through its processor’s Intel Virtualization Technology (VT-x, VT-d), large amounts of onboard memory (64GB SDRAM and up to 1 TB SSD), and support for hypervisors such as VMware. 

The Intel Xeon W-11000E Series processor also provides acceleration for Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications using Intel’s Vector Neural Network Instruction (VNNI) technology and provides double the floating-point performance using AVX512 for accelerating math-intensive applications. 

The 11th Gen processor features Intel’s latest Gen 12 graphics engine, providing up to three 4K display interfaces with performance that rivals discrete graphics solutions. 

These features of the Intel Xeon W-11000 make the VPX6-1961 ideal for demanding mission computing and virtualization applications in deployed environments.

“Following Intel’s recent introduction of its Intel Xeon W-11000E Series processor, we are proud to announce that this extremely high-performance new device will power our new VPX6-1961, the most powerful and capable single board computer we’ve ever brought to market,” said Chris Wiltsey, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions. 

“With its eight cores, support for enterprise-class virtualization, and highly rugged packaging, the VPX6-1961 utilizing the Intel Xeon W-11000E Series processor sets a whole new standard for embedded computing performance.”
