Acromag Releases New 6U OpenVPX Single Board Computer with Intel Xeon E3 CPU and Extensive I/O Support
WIXOM, Mich: Acromag, Inc. introduces the AcroExpress VPX6860 6U OpenVPX single board computer. The VPX6860 series features the 6th Generation Skylake Intel Xeon E3-1505M processor and CM236 PCH chipset for wide-ranging I/O support.
Acromag is expanding on the popularity of our 3U VPX processor model to provide a 6U version with greater I/O flexibility, stated Robert Greenfield, Acromag's Business Development Manager. We added dual 40GbE ports and two slots for XMC and AcroPack I/O modules.
A broad array of I/O options includes dual USB 3.0, a mini-display port, and RJ45 gigabit Ethernet on the front panel. Backplane I/O supports PCIe Gen3 x16 on the expansion plane, dual 40 GBASE-KR4 on the data plane, plus dual 1000BASE-T and 1000BASE-BX on the control plane. Two M.2 expansion sites offer plenty of on-board data storage. Other I/O includes four RS-232/422/485, two USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, two DisplayPort, two SATA III, eight GPIO, and audio capabilities. XMC and AcroPack module slots can add FPGA or other I/O processing.
The AcroExpress processor boards are ideal for military and aerospace applications that require high-performance computing, expansive I/O support, and advanced cooling management.
