ADLINK Technology, Inc. (San Jose, CA) announced the VPX6000, a rugged 6U VPX blade featuring a dual processor design based on quad-core 4th generation Intel Core i7-4700EQ processors. The VPX6000 is a high performance blade designed to meet MIL-STD-810F for harsh environments and provide the high availability required for mission-critical applications, including radar, sonar, UAV and UGV in defense and aerospace. The two CPU sub-systems are connected by a PCIe x8 Gen2 non-transparent bridge for high-speed, high-bandwidth data transfer. The VPX6000 is a SWaP-optimized platform designed to meet defense industry requirements for operation in harsh environments across wide operating temperature ranges (-40°C to +75°C at wedge-lock), withstanding high shock and vibration, while having a maximum power consumption of only 160W. With the ADLINK VPX6000, system integrators can map multiple functions such as control, graphics and signal processing onto one blade. It can also run dual independent systems. The VPX6000 provides:
- All-in-one manageability, including SmartFusion IPMC.
- Built-in Self Test (BIT).
- Intel AMT.
