Rugged single-board computer has 11th Gen Intel system-on-chip (SoC) technology for demanding computer vision and media-processing applications.

ISMANING, Germany – Kontron AG in Ismaning, Germany, is introducing the VX3060 high-performance 3U VPX single-board computer with 11th Gen Intel system-on-chip (SoC) technology for demanding SWaP-C defense and railway applications.

Based on the low-power Intel Core i7-1185GRE quad-core processor, the high-reliability VX3060 supports specialized Vector Neural Network Instructions (VNNI) and Doubled Signal Processing performance (AVX512).

Its Gen12 Gfx graphics engine provides as many as 8,000 multi-head display interfaces for computer vision and media processing - twice that of the previous generation. 11th Gen Intel Core U-series also features a software configurable TDP from 12 to 28 Watts.

The VX3060 embedded computing board is compatible with the previous-generation architecture and with the SLT3-PAY-2F2U-14.2.3, SLT3-PAY-1F1F2U-14.2.4, and SLT3-PAY-1F1F2U1TU1T1U1T-14.2.16 VITA 65 OpenVPX profiles.

The VX3060 is available in air- and conduction-cooled versions, and offers several extensions. VX3060 can provide Hardware Root of Trust thanks to its TPM module and Kontron SEC-Line elements.

A Linux board-support package enables instant evaluation and benchmarking. A continuous flow of health data is available thanks to CMON-Line -- its integrated remotely accessible CBIT service.
