Compute-intensive processor board upgrades multi-threaded applications
According to Concurrent Technologies, the AM E4x/msd AdvancedMC processor board is particularly well-suited to applications within the industrial, test, wireless, scientific and semiconductor markets that require multi-processor or multi-board solutions with high data transfer bandwidths.
The compute-intensive AdvancedMC processor board is based on an Intel Xeon processor D-1500. Concurrent Technologies offers a single module, full-size or mid-size AdvancedMC processor board versions. The AM Ex/msd has high performance PCI Express (PCIe) Gen 3 connectivity on the backplane. According to Concurrent Technologies, users with multi-threaded or virtualised applications will notice a significant performance upgrade by using the 12-core AM E4x/msd as an upgrade to the popular four-core AM F5x/msd board.
AM E4x/msd has a compute performance of 576 single precision GFLOPS compared to the 358 GFLOPs of AM F5x/msd within a similar power envelope. In addition to raw processing performance, AM E4x/msd is fitted with up to 32Gbyte DDR4 DRAM error correcting code (ECC) memory. The use of ECC ensures internal memory data corruption is minimised allowing reliable, high speed memory access speeds with single bit error correction and dual bit error detection.
A variety of front panel connectivity includes two 10G Ethernet for enhanced high-speed networking connectivity, a DisplayPort to connect to an external graphics display, one USB 3.1 (Gen 1) and one RS232 serial port. For users needing local storage, the AM E4x/msd also has an option for a removable solid state disk module with up to 128Gbyte capacity for operating system, application code and data storage.
Concurrent Technologies designs a range of high performance Intel processor boards, switches, networking, storage and software products for use in embedded solutions. Board products are manufactured in the UK factory, located in Colchester, Essex and are producted to meet the highest level of inspection standards for long life-cycle, reliable operation.
The company’s products are used by many of the world’s leading integrators within the defence, security, aerospace, telecommunications, transportation, medical and industrial markets and are designed to be operated in a range of temperatures and environments from benign to extreme rugged.
