VadaTech releases VITA 46 processor module for general purpose processing
For general purpose processing in demanding environments, the VPX760 is a VITA 46 processor module from VadaTech. The 3U VPX processor module is based on the Intel Xeon Processor E-2176M with CM246 PCH. Base frequency is 2.7GHz with max turbo frequency of 4.4GHz.
Front panel interfaces include GbE via RJ45, video via mini DisplayPort and dual USB3.0 type C connectors for extended storage or peripherals. The module provides PCIe Gen3 x8 (which can be bifurcated as dual x4), PCIe Gen2 x4, dual GbE and dual SATA Gen3 on P1. There is PCIe Gen3 x8 (or dual x4) and dual USB3.0 on P2, as well as an additional video display output.
The VPX760 has up to 32Gbyte of DDR4 memory with error code correction (ECC) and 64byte of flash for the operating system (OS). The BIOS allows booting from on-board NAND, off-board SATA, PXE boot as well as USB.
For secure boot, the module provides TPM (Trust Management Platform) and is loaded with Linux OS. Other options can be provided on request and following consultation.
The VPX760 is available in a range of temperature and shock/vibration specifications per ANSI/VITA 47, up to V3 and OS2.
