and 2x 1000BASE-T, 2x PCIe x1, HD audio (Line-in, Line-out), 3x
SATA 6 Gb/s, 2x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0, 8x GPIO, HDMI, DVI and
A VPX-R6000 Rear Transition Module is available to access rear
I/O signals from the VPX6000 and a tBP-VPX6000 Test Backplane
supporting three payload slots is available for users to validate
The VPX6000 Series is rugged conduction cooled with conformal
coating, making it ideal for mission critical applications such as
military and aerospace platforms.
ADLINK Announces Rugged SWaP-optimized 6U VPX Radar SolutionThe VPX6000 is a low-power, high availability VPX blade designed for the harsh environments of defense and aerospace applications
ADLINK Technology, Inc., a leading global provider of cloud-based services, intelligent gateways and embedded building blocks for edge devices that enable the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced the VPX6000, a rugged 6U VPX blade featuring a dual processor design based on quad-core 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7-4700EQ processors. The VPX6000 is a high performance blade designed to meet MIL-STD-810F for harsh environments and provide the high availability required for mission-critical applications, including radar, sonar, UAV and UGV in defense and aerospace.
The two CPU sub-systems are connected by a PCIe x8 Gen2 non-transparent bridge for high-speed, high-bandwidth data transfer. The VPX6000 is a SWaP-optimized platform designed to meet defense industry requirements for operation in harsh environments across wide operating temperature ranges (-40°C to +75°C at wedge-lock), withstanding high shock and vibration, while having a maximum power consumption of only 160W.
With the ADLINK VPX6000, system integrators can map multiple functions such as control, graphics and signal processing onto one blade. It can also run dual independent systems, reducing the card count and required number of spares to simplify logistical support in the field. The VPX6000 also supports multiple operating systems, including Windows Embedded, Linux and VxWorks, providing flexibility for system design.
The VPX6000 provides all-in-one manageability, including SmartFusion IPMC, built-in Self Test (BIT) and Intel® AMT. These features support remote monitoring and management of the VPX6000 to help or immediately correct any problems in order to avoid critical system crashes and maintain high availability.
The ADLINK VPX6000 provides flexibility and reliability with rich and fast I/O, including VGA, GbE and 2x USB 3.0 on the front panel, HDMI/DVI, 3x USB 3.0, 2x serial ports, PS/2 keyboard/mouse, 8x GPIO and audio to the backplane. In addition, an expansion plane of 2x PCIe x8 Gen2 with DMA is provided. The VPX6000 supports 16GB soldered dual-channel DDR3L ECC memory and upgradeable storage via SSD mezzanine card for flexible and rugged storage compared to traditional hard disk drives.
