Deployable Conduction-cooled 3U VPX Product

Concurrent Technologies, a leading supplier of processor solutions for demanding environments, is now shipping deployment quantities of the rugged conduction-cooled TR E5x/msd-RCx processor board having passed all the prerequisite qualification tests. These include storage and operation over extreme temperature ranges, as well as reliable operation when subjected to three-axis shock and random vibration tests according to the VITA 47 standard. As such, TR E5x/msd-RCx is available for use in the type of harsh environments encountered in some military, defense, transportation and industrial applications.

TR E5x/msd-RCx is a 3U VPX board based on a quad-core device from the Intel ® Xeon ® processor E3-1500 v5 family and has 16GB of DDR4 ECC DRAM. This allows for high performance command, control, communicate and compute, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance applications. In addition to a wide assortment of on-board I/O interfaces, an XMC expansion site enables customers to add application specific storage and I/O with up to 24 single-ended and 20 differential pairs trace through to the backplane.

Complimentary products are available from Concurrent Technologies including a Gen 3 PCI Express ®switch, XMC carriers and mass storage boards, as well as software and firmware to help system integrators create class leading solutions.

Glen Fawcett, CEO of Concurrent Technologies, commented: “The release of this TR E5x/msd rugged product, following on from its earlier release at commercial grade, further demonstrates our commitment to providing our customers with products that can be used in a variety of applications and environments. These products are designed, manufactured and tested at our in-house facilities giving us control over all aspects of the hardware and complementary firmware and software products, providing our customers with a high standard of support and ongoing supply.”
