2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors on 3U OpenVPX™ and 6U VXS form factor

RedLinX Embedded Solutions, one of the four divisions within RedLinX, announced that they now have available 3U OpenVPX™ and 6U VXS high performance embedded Single Board Computers featuring the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processor and Intel® 6 series chipsets from the Intel® embedded roadmap. These products are manufactured by Concurrent Technologies.

The TR 80x/39x (3U OpenVPX™ Single Board Computer) features the enhanced processing and graphics performance of the quad-core Intel® Core™ i7-2715QE processor and the dual-core Intel® Core™ i5-2515E processor whilst maintaining the power consumption of the previous Intel® Core™ processors.

The VX 81x/09x is a 6U VXS Single Board Computer fully compliant with the VITA 41.x standard.

With the VX 81x/09x, users will benefit from the enhanced processing and graphics performance of the quad-core Intel® Core™ i7-2715QE processor or the dual-core Intel® Core i5-2515E processor.

The VX 81x/09x provides support for quad-core or dual-core 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors, enabling RedLinX, via Concurrent Technologies, to provide enhanced performance and features over previous Intel® Core™ processor based boards. The 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors offer enhanced graphic capabilities resulting in virtually double the graphics performance of previous architectures, and with support for SATA600, PCI Express® Gen 2, Intel® Turbo Boost Technology capabilities and media acceleration, this Single Board Computer offers cutting edge technology for tomorrow’s applications.

Additionally the board supports up to 16Gbyte of ECC DDR3 SDRAM, configurable PCI Express® fabric interface supporting 1 x8, 2 x4, 1 x4 + 1 x4 at Gen 1 or Gen 2 data rates, dual Gigabit Ethernet, dual SATA600, dual PMC / XMC slots, dual serial RS232/422/485 ports, 6 USB 2.0 ports, dual independent display ports, on-board CompactFlash™ and optional 2.5 inch hard drive.

The VX 81x/09x is available in three temperature grades; 0°C to +55°C (N-Series), -25°C to +70°C (E-Series), -40°C to +85°C (K-Series) and two ruggedized grades; Ruggedized Conduction-Cooled -40°C to +85°C (RC), Ruggedized Air-Cooled -40°C to +75°C (RA). In addition to the VX 81x/09x, Concurrent Technologies will also be releasing Intel® Core™ processor-based boards for 3U CompactPCI, AMC and 3U VPX.

Says Alastair Knight from RedLinX, “These two products enable us to equip customers with the highest-performance processor solutions matched to state-of-the-art backplane architectures.”

Operating systems currently supported for the release of the TR 80x/39x and VX 81x/09x are Windows® 7, Windows® XP, Windows® Embedded Standard 7, Linux® and VxWorks®.

Concludes Knight, “Applications for the TR 80x/39 are expected in real-time, military embedded, aerospace and transportation systems for data acquisition, control systems and video signal processing. Whereas applications for the VX 81x/09x are expected in real-time systems and military embedded systems for data acquisition, instrumentation, control systems and signal processing.”
