OpenVPX board feature second generation Intel Core
The 6U iVPX7220 and 3U iVPX7223 boards feature the dual-core 2.20 GHz Intel Core i7 2655LE processor with integrated graphics and memory controller, and the Intel QM67 PCH chipset for advanced I/O functionality.
The iVPX7220 also supports the quad-core 2nd generation Intel Core i7 2715QE processor. Both of the products released at Embedded World are rugged SBCs for extreme environments with extended shock, vibration and temperature ratings, and conduction cooling. Emerson Network Power will continue to extend its family of products featuring 2nd generation Intel Core processors during 2011 with additional modules, motherboards and SBCs.
The 2nd generation Intel Core processors implement an enhanced 256-bit instruction set (including Intel Advanced Vector Extensions, or AVX) and other features that provide for fast processing of vast quantities of data. This high-throughput capability is supported with both a high-speed fabric with data transfer rates up to 5 Gbps and generous on-board memory provision.
The iVPX7223 and the dual-core variant of the iVPX7220 feature up to 8GB DDR3-1333, while the quad-core processor variant of the iVPX7220 is designed to support up to 16GB DDR3-1333 memory. Fabric connectivity includes Gigabit Ethernet to the control plane and PCI Express to the data plane, while the iVPX7220 also offers PCI Express to the expansion plane.
The iVPX7220 also offers 4GB of embedded USB flash and 256KB of non-volatile Ferroelectric Random Access Memory (F-RAM). Additional connectivity includes up to nine USB 2.0 ports, five serial ports, five SATA ports, ten GPIOs, three DisplayPort connections, VGA and dual XMC sites for maximum flexibility. An optional 2.5 inch SATA solid-state disk is also available.
The iVPX7223 offers 4GB of embedded USB flash and 256KB of non-volatile F-RAM. Additional connectivity on this board includes three USB 2.0 ports, two serial ports, three SATA ports, eight GPIO, one DisplayPort connection, one VGA and one XMC site.
Software support on the products includes UEFI BIOS for an improved customer experience and a wide range of operating systems including VxWorks and Linux from Wind River, Windows XP Embedded, Red Hat Fedora Linux, Green Hills INTEGRITY and LynuxWorks LynxOS.
