Kontron: Xeon D processor VPX computing module features 40 GbE

Kontron announced the new VX305C-40G 3U OpenVPX single board computer module. The ITAR-free 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 to bring a new level of performance to battlefield server-class computing and digital signal processing.

The Kontron VX305C-40G leverages the Intel Xeon D-1559 processor, which provides best-in-class computation performance for demanding signal and image processing applications. The VX305C-40G combines that with a 40 GigaGbE Data Plane, dual 10 GbE Control Plane, four-lane PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0 expansion plane to the backplane for system I/O. Add user I/O including USB (both generation 2 and 3), video (HDMI, with Display Port available in 2019), SATA 3, Serial Ports (TIA-232 and TIA-422), GPIO, an M.2 site for storage or for integration of customized personality modules, and an XMC site with a wide backplane signal map, and the result is a versatile 3U SBC platform in a ruggedized package for harsh size, weight, power and cost constrained environments.

Other features of the VX305C-40G include a 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. To complement this, the VX305C-40G offers a Power-On Built-in Test (PBIT) that give designers a comprehensive package for board and system diagnosis. An additional layered product includes CMON, a lightweight, user-configurable continuous system monitoring tool.
