Concurrent Technologies Launches New Rugged 3U VPX I/O Intensive Plug In Card

Ideal for Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) constrained applications

Concurrent Technologies launches a new 3U VPX Plug in Card (PIC) designed in alignment with the SOSA™ Technical Standard.  This new I/O intensive processor is targeted for use in a variety of Situational Awareness and Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) applications that need a combination of general-purpose processing augmented with image processing and Artificial Intelligence (AI) acceleration.

TR K9x/6sd-RCx is based on an 11th Gen Intel® Core™ Processor which has up to 4 CPU cores mated with 16 Gbytes of soldered DDR4 DRAM with in-band Error Correction Code for high-performance general-purpose compute tasks.  The Intel® Iris® Xe Graphics integrated into the product adds up to 96 Execution Units for AI and acceleration when utilized by an OpenCL, oneAPI or OpenVINO™ application.  Extra processing or I/O can be included within a single slot via the onboard XMC site which means that the product can be easily reconfigured for specific application needs.  Connectivity to the XMC site and the backplane data and expansion plane connections is via a PCIe switch with non-Transparent port and DMA capability, allowing for SWaP optimized multi-processor solutions without the need for a separate PCIe switch. In addition, TR K9x/6sd-RCx supports a number of rear connections for easy development and deployment including Ethernet, DisplayPort and USB.  One of the advantages SOSA alignment is that the rear I/O connections are defined on the backplane, allowing customers to easily realize technology transitions and extend product life cycles.

Nigel Forrester, Director of Product Strategy for Concurrent Technologies, commented: “This new board is a key addition to our portfolio of Intel® processor-based solutions; it enables more deterministic networking, with features like Precision Time Protocol, and adds capabilities to significantly improve AI inferencing and image processing performance.  We are determined to provide our customers with a variety of options to fulfil their needs and this new Plug in Card is the perfect next step for our embedded solutions.”

Easy Hardware and Software Scalability across Renesas RA MCUs

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Renesas

There are a bewildering number of choices when designing with an MCU. It can be a challenge to find one with exactly what your design requires - form factor, cost, power consumption, performance, features, and ease-of-use. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Brad Rex of Renesas about the small-but-powerful Renesas RA family - a flexible and scalable collection of MCUs that may be exactly what your next project needs.
