These rugged embedded computing blades are ased on 6- or 8-core microprocessors from Intel's 11th Gen Xeon processors with 10-nanometer technology.

ISMANING, Germany – Kontron AG in Ismaning, Germany, is introducing the CP6007 CompactPCI air-cooled blade computer series for use harsh-environment industrial, aerospace, and defense applications.

The standard CP6007-SA computer blade and the rugged CP6007-RA blade are for use in harsh environments, and follow the VITA 47 open-systems standard for high shock and vibration demands and temperature ranges from -40 to 70 Celsius.

Based on 6- or 8-core microprocessors from Intel's 11th Gen Xeon processors with 10-nanometer technology, the Kontron CP6007 blade series is for long-term, general computing and server applications based on PICMG 2.16. This blade also is backwards compatible with previous Kontron blades.

Both blades offer performance-per-Watt capability with a scalable power budget allowing users the flexibility to tailor power dissipation.

The CP6007-RA embedded computing blade features a 32 gigabytes soldered memory while the CP6007-SA can carry a SODIMM module to provide as much as 64 gigabytes memory with Error Correction Code (ECC) support. The CP6007-RA variant is the successor of the Kontron CP6004-RA blade.

Communication and media interfaces are provided, along with hardware and software system security through Trusted Platform Module (TPM 2.0). Extension options like storage, XMC, PMC, and rear-I/O are provided.

Included are onboard industrial-grade NVMe and SATA M.2 flash devices, and a 2.5 inch SATA hard disk or solid-state drive to be located on a respective rear-I/O module. XMC compatibility based on XMC.3 is available for supporting x8 PCI Express, or alternatively PMC.
