Designed for applications requiring high processing and communication performance together with low power, the IC-ARM-VPX3b is a complete and versatile Single Board Computer dedicated to 3U VPX compact systems.

The IC-ARM-VPX3b partially complies with the VITA 65.0 OpenVPX Slot profile SLT3-PAY-1F4F2U-14.2.14. 

This board provides the defense and industrial embedded electronic markets with the latest technological innovations through the NXP QorIQ® Layerscape® LX2160A multicore communication processor.


The IC-ARM-VPX3b is equipped with a NXP QorIQ® Layerscape® LX2080A or LX2160A multicore communication processor with up to 16 cores up to 2.2GHz, two large banks of DDR4 with ECC support, local storage and 10/40G Ethernet interfaces for high bandwidth connections. 

The processor hardware accelerator and large caches provides outstanding computing performance to the IC-ARM-VPX3b with powerful packet processing offload and Ethernet controllers.

For applications requiring optimized power dissipation, the IC-ARM-VPX3b is proposed with the low power QorIQ® Layerscape® family member processor referenced as LX2080A. This processor features eight Arm® Cortex®-A72 32/64 bit cores, running at 1.8 GHz, 2.0GHz or 2.2GHz.

The IC-ARM-VPX3b features up to 32GB of DDR4-ECC and a variety of storage solutions (M.2 slot, eMMC, F-RAM, which provide flexibility for system designers to meet the topology demands of large centralized systems and handle scenarios with heavy traffic on specific backplane segments. 

Furthermore, the board offers a significant number of security features.

The IC-ARM-VPX3b is available in air-cooled and conduction-cooled versions.
