MIDDLETON, Wis., 29 Nov. 2012. Extreme Engineering Solutions Inc. (X-ES) in Middleton, Wis., is introducing the XCalibur1641 6U VPX single-board computer with Freescale QorIQ P3041, P4040, P4080, P5010, P5020, and P5040 processors for conduction- and air-cooled, high-end, military applications.

The XCalibur1641 is an OpenVPX-compliant, conduction- or air-cooled, 6U VPX embedded computing board for military embedded systems. The stock processor is a Freescale P4080 with eight PowerPC e500mc cores that runs at speeds as fast as 1.5 GHz.

The XCalibur1641 also is available with a quad-core P3041, quad-core P4040, single-core P5010, dual-core P5020, or quad-core P5040 processor. It supports as much as 16 gigabytes of DDR3-1333 ECC SDRAM in two channels, 512 megabytes of boot flash (with redundancy), 64 gigabytes of user flash, and 256 gigabytes of optional SATA user flash.

Standard I/O includes four Gigabit Ethernet ports, as many as five SATA 3-gigabit-per-second ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and two RS-232/422/485 serial ports. Application-specific I/O is added easily via dual PMC/XMC sites with a PCI Express interface (x8) to each XMC site.

Board support packages (BSP) software support is available for Green Hills Integrity and Integrity-178B tuMP, Wind River VxWorks, and Linux.
