3U VPX rugged computer board based on Freescale QorIQ P2020 processor introduced by X-ES

MIDDLETON, Wis., 26 Sept. 2010. Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) in Middleton, Wis., is introducing the XPedite5570 air- or conduction-cooled 3U VPX single-board computer based on the Freescale Semiconductor dual-core QorIQ P2020 processor for size, weight, and power (SWaP)-constrained military applications. The CPU board consumes less than 20 Watts, and can host nearly any high-performance, FPGA-based, A/D or camera-interfaced XMC module for unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) surveillance applications, company officials say.

MIDDLETON, Wis., 26 Sept. 2010. Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) in Middleton, Wis., is introducing the XPedite5570 air- or conduction-cooled 3U VPXsingle-board computer based on the Freescale Semiconductor dual-core QorIQ P2020 processor for size, weight, and power (SWaP)-constrained military applications. The CPU board consumes less than 20 Watts, and can host nearly any high-performance, FPGA-based, A/D or camera-interfaced XMC module for unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) surveillance applications, company officials say.

These computer boards feature as much as 4 gigabytes of DDR3-800 ECC SDRAM; as much as 16 gigabytes of NAND flash and 256 megabytes of redundant NOR flash; two x4 PCI Express VPX dataplane links to the backplane; two 1000 BASE-X Gigabit Ethernet VPX control-plane links to the backplane; two optional 1000 BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet links to the backplane; one XMC/PrPMC site; two serial ports; one USB port; and software operating system support for Green Hills INTEGRITY Board Support Package (BSP), Wind River VxWorks BSP, or Linux BSP.

These embedded computing board products are engineered to scale from air-cooled commercial (0 to 55 degrees Celsius) to conduction-cooled rugged (-40 to 85 C) with shock and vibration testing to MIL-STD 810F/G requirements. For more information contact X-ES online at www.xes-inc.com.
