High Performance in small form factor enclosure

The XPand6215 is latest 3U VPX embedded system from Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES).  It is a small form factor enclosure and it sets a new standard for high-bandwidth data acquisition and signal processing in harsh environments.

With multiple high-speed optical links, an Intel® Xeon® D-1500 processor, and a Xilinx Kintex® UltraScale™ FPGA, the XPand6215 offers uncompromising performance and reliability in a SWaP-optimised two-slot system.

Excels in Extreme Environments – High Speed, Fibre Optic Communications

One chassis slot contains the XPedite2570, a reconfigurable fibre optic I/O module based on the user-programmable Xilinx Kintex® UltraScale™ family of FPGAs.

The XPedite2570 supplies 12 protocol-independent optical transceivers operating at up to 10.3125 Gb/s, along with 8 GB of DDR4 ECC SDRAM in two channels capable of up to 38 GB/s aggregate bandwidth.

The transceivers utilise 50/125 μm multi-mode fibre with MT connectors and are qualified over the full -40°C to +85°C industrial temperature range to bring unprecedented signalling speed and trusted performance to extreme environments.
