VPX6-1957 6U VPX Intel Core i7 Ivy Bridge SBC

VPX6-1957 6U VPX Intel Core i7 Ivy Bridge SBC

The VPX6-1957 rugged, high performance 6U OpenVPX single board computer (SBC) is based on the Intel® 3rd Generation Core™ i7 (Ivy Bridge) processor. The VPX6-1957 6U OpenVPX Intel Single Board Computer was designed for harsh-environment aerospace and defense applications. Each of the VPX6-1957 SBC’s Intel Core i7's four cores delivers 2.1 GHz of performance, providing advanced Intel Architecture processing on the increasingly popular 6U OpenVPX form factor.

With a rich complement of on-board I/O, PCI Express (PCIe) Gen2, Serial RapidIO (SRIO) Gen2, Quad Gigabit Ethernet, Dual 10 Gb Ethernet and XMC expansion, the VPX6-1957 Intel Single Board Computer satisfies the most demanding fielded applications for unmanned aerial and ground vehicles, tactical aircraft, armored vehicles and rugged naval systems.

Available in a full range of air- and conduction-cooled configurations (including Air Flow Through), the rugged VPX6-1957 VPX Intel Single Board Computer combines the significantly improved floating-point performance of the Intel Core i7 processor with the substantial bandwidth and system-enabling features of the 6U OpenVPX form factor. The board's quad-core processor features the new Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) floating-point instructions, and delivers unmatched performance. The VPX6-1957 Intel SBC is available with up to 16 GB of high-bandwidth DDR3 SDRAM (1333 MHz) and comes with a rich complement of high-speed I/O, including dual gigabit Ethernet, dual 10 GbE, Gen2 PCIe, Gen2 SRIO, four USB 2.0 ports, one XMC/PMC site, and one XMC site, each supported with eight lanes of Gen2 PCIe. The board's integral high-speed gigabit Ethernet, PCIe fabric and XMC/PMC mezzanine module connectivity enables high bandwidth data flows. Data can also flow from the VPX backplane to the XMC site to support demanding high bandwidth applications such as video acquisition, processing & distribution, and radar and sonar. The VPX6- 1957 Intel SBC features high-bandwidth fabric to the backplane via Gen2 PCIe or Gen2 SRIO to the expansion and data plane connectors. This fabric provides high-bandwidth connectivity between the VPX6-1957 VPX Intel SBC and additional boards in a computing environment.

The VPX6-1957 OpenVPX Intel SBC is supported by a suite of firmware, RTOS board support packages (BSP), communication libraries and signal processing libraries. The Continuum Software Architecture is Curtiss-Wright’s suite of firmware and BSP APIs that is common to SBC (VME, cPCI and VPX) and multiprocessor boards.
