Long-life VPX embedded computing board with trusted computing security introduced by Concurrent Technologies

June 19, 2019
TR E8x/lsd computer board has a six-core Intel Xeon E-2276ME processor running at 2.8 GHz with as much as 32 gigabytes of soldered-down DDR4 memory.

WOBURN, Mass. – Concurrent Technologies Inc. in Woburn, Mass., is introducing the TR E8x/lsd VPX processor board based on the Intel Xeon E-2200 processor family for long-life-cycle aerospace and defense embedded computing applications.

The default variant of TR E8x/lsd is fitted with a six-core Intel Xeon E-2276ME processor running at 2.8 GHz with as much as 32 gigabytes of soldered-down DDR4 memory, and I/O that includes on-board graphics.

These features make it particularly suitable for supervisory compute, display and storage tasks in the military, aerospace, transportation, and industrial applications. Air-cooled boards will be available for shipment in Q3 with rugged conduction-cooled variants due for qualification testing late this year.

Security is a key design requirement for this product; all TR E8x/lsd boards come with the Boot Guard trusted computing software is enabled to ensure that only firmware authorized by Concurrent Technologies can be executed.

Secure Boot also is permanently enabled to validate the operating system and application software before execution. A TPM 2.0 device acts as a secure safe for encrypted key storage. For additional protection, Concurrent Technologies offers optional sanitization utilities or our proprietary security package to prevent against intrusion.

The VPX board has been designed with a flexible PCI Express configuration, to enable connection to several peripheral boards without a PCI Express switch. The normal configuration has two x4 data plane ports with a further option to have as many as three x4 data and expansion plane ports all running at Gen 3 speeds.

An on-board PCI Express switch has DMA and non-transparent bridge capability to enable high throughput transfers and multi-processor board configurations.
