WOBURN, Mass., 29 Sept. 2012. Concurrent Technologies, a hardware, software and firmware designer, has announced their latest 3U OpenVPX processor board, the TR 90x/x1x. The new board features the 3rd generation Intel Core processor. The TR 90x/x1x combines the strengths of the 3rd generation Intel Core processor with optional board level security features to deliver a high performance, security enabled processing solution to the OpenVPX market. Ruggedized variants will be released soon. The integrated TR 90x/x1x single board computer features dual-core or quad-core 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processors and Mobile Intel QM77 Express chipset with up to 16 Gbytes of ECC DRAM. The TR 90x/x1x is a VITA 65 compliant, plug-compatible upgrade for earlier generation products. The TR 90x/x1x also features USB 3.0 capability to enhance IO performance and is offered with optional security features. The security package offered with the TR 90x/x1x provides a comprehensive set of hardware, firmware and software features designed to aid customers to deliver secure embedded solutions into applications where protecting critical technologies and data is mandatory. It provides a set of customer configurable security options that can be tailored to provide a unique security solution for each specific application.

The TR 90x/x1x provides a configurable PCI Express fabric interface supporting 1 x8, 2 x4, 1 x4 and 4 x1 at Gen 1 or Gen 2 data rates. Rear IO for the board includes dual Gigabit Ethernet or dual 1000Base-BX channels, dual SATA600 ports, a serial RS232/422/485 port, dual USB 2.0 ports and a VGA port. Optional front IO includes a serial RS232 port, a Gigabit Ethernet port and a USB 3.0 port. A single XMC slot is also available to further increase the I/O capability of the board through the introduction of XMC modules. An on-board SATA flash drive provides storage.

Applications for the TR 90x/x1x are expected in real-time, military embedded systems, aerospace and transportation systems for data acquisition, control systems and video signal processing.

Supported operating systems are include Linux, Windows 7, Windows XP, Windows Embedded Standard 7, QNX and VxWorks. The TR 90x/x1x is also supported by Concurrent Technologies’ fabric interconnect networking software (FIN-S) which provides a communications mechanism for multiple host boards to intercommunicate across high speed serial fabrics like PCI Express.
