Single board computers boost links to VME processing apps
In line with its strategy of helping customers to get the fastest possible access to the latest technology, Abaco Systems has introduced the XVB603 and XVR19 6U VME single board computers, based on the latest 7th generation Intel technology, codenamed “Kaby Lake”. The boards are designed to cover the full range of VME processing applications from industrial control through to fully rugged, mission critical defence and aerospace deployments.
The XVB603 and XVR19 provide straightforward, cost-effective and low risk upgrades for users of previous XVB and XVR products, bringing enhanced processor performance, enhanced storage and improved protection against obsolescence. They will also suit new program starts.
Both product ranges offer the same reliability and stability that typify VME-based products. Long-term availability is assured as a result of utilising CPUs from Intel’s long term-supported Internet of Things roadmap, and Abaco’s new Vivo FPGA-based VME interface.
The XVB603 is targeted at air-cooled, front I/O application in relatively benign environments typically found in industrial or sheltered defence settings. The XVR19 is a fully rugged offering, with both rugged air-cooled and conduction-cooled versions, targeted at command and control applications typical of the defence and aerospace markets on land, sea and air.
Extended longevity is further enhanced by Abaco’s industry-leading Product Lifecycle Management program which plays a key role in Abaco’s strategy of minimising customers’ long-term cost of ownership.
The 7th generation Intel Xeon E3-1505M v6 Intel processor which offers integrated graphics and memory controller together with quad core processing up to 3.0GHz all in one device. Coupled with the Mobile Intel QM87 Express Chipset, the processing node delivers greater processor performance than 6th generation-based products.
In addition to a comprehensive range of onboard I/O features, the XVB603 and XVR19 also offer on-board mezzanine expansion sites for enhanced system flexibility. Memory resources include up to 16 GB of soldered DDR4 SDRAM for optimum performance and reliability.
