The latest 3U VPX embedded system from Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) sets a new standard for high-bandwidth data acquisition and signal processing in harsh environments.
With multiple high-speed optical links, an Intel Xeon D-1500 processor, and a Xilinx Kintex UltraScale FPGA, the new XPand6215 offers uncompromising performance and reliability in a SWaP-optimized two-slot system.
One chassis slot contains the XPedite2570, a reconfigurable fiber optic I/O module based on the user-programmable Xilinx Kintex UltraScale family of FPGAs.
The XPedite2570 supplies 12 protocol-independent optical transceivers operating at up to 10.3125 Gb/s, along with 8 GB of DDR4 ECC SDRAM in two channels capable of up to 38 GB/s aggregate bandwidth.
The transceivers utilize 50/125 μm multi-mode fiber with MT connectors and are qualified over the full -40°C to +85°C industrial temperature range to bring unprecedented signaling speed and trusted performance to extreme environments.
The other slot of the XPand6215 contains the XPedite7670, a 3U VPX Single Board Computer (SBC) based on the Intel Xeon D-1500 family of processors (formerly Broadwell-DE).
Available with up to 16 Xeon-class cores in a single, power-efficient System-on-Chip (SoC) package, this processor puts the XPand6215 in the upper echelon of embedded system performance. Xeon D processors with up to 12 cores offer native extended temperature support with an operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.
The XPedite7670 also provides up to 16 GB of DDR4-2133 ECC SDRAM, while an XPort3305 10 Gigabit Ethernet XMC module installed on the XPedite7670 provides a rugged 10GBASE-SR Ethernet port to the J4 connector.
The XPand6200 Series of rugged, embedded systems are available in a diverse range of configurations, making them uniquely-suited to a variety of processing-intensive military applications.
