3U OpenVPX Single Board Computer – Acromag

The AcroExpress VPX6600 is a high performance 3U OpenVPX Single Board Computer based on the 6th Generation Skylake Intel Xeon Processor and PCH. Designed for COTS applications this Single Board Computer uses the Intel C230 Series PCH Chipset for extensive I/O support. Heat is managed with a fully integrated heatsink for advanced cooling management. The VPX6600 doesn’t consume I/O space and offers specialised I/O on P2.

The VPX6600 3U OpenVPX Single Board Computer also takes advantage of Intel Advanced Vector Extensions 2.0.  This is for enhanced performance on floating point-intensive applications and Hyper-Threading Technology that enables each core to use two software threads for more efficient use of the CPU.

Supports either one or two DDR4 ECC SODIMMs, for a total of up to 32GB removable memory. The SODIMMs are firmly attached to the module with screws for easy replacement and surrounded by heat sink material to provide a mechanically and thermally robust mechanism. These processors feature a M.2 Flash storage site perfect for solid-state storage application.

Performance Specifications

AcroExpress Processor & Memory
Processor: Intel Xeon processor. (6th generation, codename Skylake). The CPU allows programming a lower power limit in the BIOS setup allowing use in applications where less power is available or heat removal is an issue.

E3-1505M V5: 2.8GHz, quad core, 8Mb cache, 47W.

Chipset: Intel C230 series CM236 PCH chipset.

Memory: 32GB of 2133 DDR4 ECC memory.

Flash Storage: M.2 site available for onboard Flash.

Software Support
Acromag offers a board support package that contains the supporting drivers, documentation, as well as example code for the VXWorks® 7 Real Time Operating Systems.

Drivers for Microsoft® Windows® 7/8 and Linux™ are available for download from www.acromag.com.

Fabric Port
The VPX6600 provides 3 ports of x4 Gen 3 PCIe where 1-x4 port is used on the Data Plane and 2-x4 ports are used on the Expansion Plane. All ports fully comply with the PCIe specifications as defined by PCISIG and are routed to the P1 backplane connector as defined by VITA 46.4. The Data Plane and Expansion Plane interfaces can be used to interconnect multiple VPX6600’s or to provide PMC/XMC support using the VPX4814.

Bus Compliance
