New Intel Xeon D Processor VPX computing module featuring 40 Gigabit Ethernet introduced

Kontron continues to raise the bar for high performance computing architectures for defense systems with the VX305C-40G based on a new I/O Intensive SBC OpenVPX profile.

Building on its successful VX3058 and VX305C products, and developed in alignment with the SOSA Technical Standard, the VX305C-40G is the first instance of a new fully-defined OpenVPX SBC profile which marries a 40 Gigabit Ethernet port and a rich assortment of user I/O to the powerful 12-core version of the Intel Xeon D processor.

The VX305C-40G brings a new level of performance to battlefield server-class computing and digital signal processing (DSP) using Open Systems Architectures.

Advantages of the Kontron VX305C-40G:

  • Combines the computational power of the 12-core Intel Xeon D-1559 processor with a rich assortment of I/O, most notable being a 40 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) Data Plane.
  • Meets demanding military sensor and other high performance embedded computing (HPEC) application requirements.
  • Includes Kontron-designed VITA 46.11 compatible Intelligent Platform Management Controller (IPMC) to provide system-wide health management, sequenced system power-up and Temperature/Power/Performance management.

Early field test (EFT) boards are scheduled to ship before the end of 2018.
