HAMAR, Norway – Trusted computing experts at RECAB Embedded Computers AB in Hamar, Norway, needed a single-board computer to qualify the company's secure information gateway using VPX technology. They found their solution from Kontron in Augsburg, Germany.

HAMAR designers chose the Kontron VX3052 single-board computer to qualify the data gateway. The Kontron VX3052 computer board, designed on a multilayer computer architecture of three-slot single board computers interfaced to each other by an independent data link.

The 3U VPX architecture supporting 10-Gigabit Ethernet brings performance to the gateway, and supports the maintenance capability that RECAB needs for the integrated secure information gateway.

RECAB has been in charge of the 3U VPX secure information gateway system architecture, and overall system design, including the 3U VPX backplane and of the integration of the computer boards and removable drives.

The VX3052 is a two-core and four-thread Intel D-1508 single-board computer with on-board soldered DDR4 SDRAM which features two 10-Gigabit Ethernet Base-KR as well as two 1-Gigabit Ethernet Base T interfaces.
