Introducing the XPedite7674 and XPedite7676 Intel® Xeon® D 3U VPX Single Board Computers with Integrated Security FPGAs Now Available from X-ES
Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) is excited to announce the availability of the XPedite7674 and XPedite7676 Intel® Xeon® D-1500 family processor-based 3U VPX embedded single board computers. These powerful boards support up to 16 Xeon®-class cores in a single, power-efficient, System-on-Chip (SoC) package with native extended temperature support on four, eight, and twelve core-count SKUs.
XPedite7674 3U VPX SBC with Xilinx Kintex® UltraScale™ FPGA
The XPedite7674 is an Intel® Xeon® D-1500 processor-based 3U VPX single board computer that can support up to 16 core-count SKUs with native extended temperature support on up to 12 core-count SKUs. An integrated, user-configurable, Xilinx Kintex® UltraScale™ FPGA module delivers enhanced performance and security for a wide range of embedded computing applications. Featuring up to 8 GB of DDR4-2133 ECC SDRAM memory, more than 1 million logic cells with enhanced system logic cell packing to reduce dynamic power, and support for a DeepCover Security Manager secure supervisor, the Xilinx Kintex® UltraScale™ FPGA provides a dependable host for custom security functions. The Xilinx Kintex® UltraScale™ FPGA modules provide the best price/performance/watt at 20 nm. They include the highest signal processing bandwidth in a mid-range device and next- generation transceivers, making them an excellent choice for embedded security operations.
The XPedite7674 supports a variety of I/O to the VPX connectors, including dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GBASE-KR), SATA port capable of 6 Gb/s, USB 2.0, and RS-232/422/485 serial ports. The FPGA also provides GPIO, 1000BASE-X Gigabit Ethernet, and High-Speed Serial ports to the VPX connectors. The XMC site supports a x8 PCI Express Gen3-capable port and a SATA port, as well as XMC P16 I/O, mapping P1w9-X12d per VITA 46.9. Pairing the XPedite7674 embedded single board computer with the powerful computing performance of a high core-count Intel® Xeon® D processor allows for expanded networking capabilities, accelerated computing, and unparalleled processing with Xeon®-class reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS).
XPedite7676 3U VPX SBC with Microsemi SmartFusion®2 Security System-on-Chip (SoC)
The XPedite7676 is a secure, Intel® Xeon® D-1500 processor-based 3U VPX single board computer that can support up to 16 core-count SKUs with native extended temperature support on up to 12 core-count SKUs.
The XPedite7676 integrates SecureCOTS™ technology with a Microsemi SmartFusion®2 security System-on-Chip (SoC) for hosting custom functions to protect data from being modified or observed and provides an ideal solution when stringent security capabilities are required. The SmartFusion®2 SoC can control, intercept, and monitor the Xeon® D subsystem, implement penalties, and interface to the system through I/O directly connected to the VPX backplane. Circuit board enhancements and optimized Two-Level Maintenance (2LM) metalwork provide additional protection to the physical hardware.
The XPedite7676’s XMC site supports X24s+X8d+X12d I/O, allowing increased flexibility in the range of mezzanine cards that can be used with this board. This XMC I/O takes almost all possible mezzanine I/O from P16 and routes it directly to the XPedite7676’s VPX P1 connector. Additionally, the XMC site supports a x8 PCI Express Gen3-capable port and six SmartFusion®2 GPIO interfaces.
Dual 10GBASE-KR 10 Gigabit Ethernet, 10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0, SATA ports capable of 6 Gb/s, RS-232/422/485 serial, dual x4 PCI Express Gen3, and GPIO are all routed to the backplane VPX connectors.
Board Support Packages and Firmware Available
Both the XPedite7674 and the XPedite7676 support the Wind River VxWorks Board Support Package (BSP), coreboot firmware powered by Intel® FSP to enable rapid and reliable sub-2.5 second boot times, and the X-ES Enterprise Linux (XEL) BSP.
