ADLINK has introduced two solutions based on the Intel Xeon Processor D-1500 family. The cPCI-6940 Series 6U CompactPCI processor blade is offered in single/dual-slot (4/8HP) width form factor that provides a virtualization environment and added flexibility via peripheral and expansion slots. In comparison, the VPX3010 series is a rugged, conduction-cooled 3U processor blade. It conforms to standards such as the VITA 46.0 VPX base standard and VITA 65 OpenVPX architecture framework for VPX.
Both products are 14nm technology-based, server-class Intel processors. The CompactPCI and VPX processor blades target military and transport applications, where intense ruggedness and compute requirements abound and space is limited. Intel’s Xeon technology delivers a dense, lower-power SoC with integrated PCH technology, Intel Ethernet and a BGA package that meets thermal design power targets. The blades combine intelligence, performance and low-power consumption for compute-heavy, small-footprint applications. The Intel Xeon Processor D-1500 Product Family will have extended temperature processors in the first quarter of 2016.
ADLINK’s VPX3010 Series is a rugged, conduction-cooled 3U processor blade featuring DDR4-2133 soldered ECC SDRAM up to 16GB. It includes one 10GBASE-KX4 and up to three 1G Ethernet ports; up to PCIe x16 Gen3 interfaces supporting non-transparent bridge; and one XMC expansion slot (PCIe x8 Gen3) with rear I/O to P2. Soldered SLC NAND flash 32GB SATA 6Gb/s storage comes with standard expansion options that are available using an RTM. An extended temperature range of -40°C to 85°C is also supported.
