Based on the 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processors, Kontron's VX3042 and VX3044 3U OpenVPX single-board computers (SBC) feature native support for 10 Gigabit Ethernet and PCI Express 3.0 to meet and exceed even the highest bandwidth demands of network centric military, aerospace and transportation applications. The VX3042 is based on the 2.2 GHz dual-core Intel Core i7-3517UE processor with configurable TDP between 14 and 25 W. It offers up to 16 GB soldered ECC DDR3 SDRAM and one XMC site to enable application specific customization by populating the XMC slot with additional specialized XMCs including I/O, field bus and storage modules. Specifically designed for high-performance embedded computing, the leading edge VX3044 integrates the Intel i7-3612QE quad-core processor with 2.1 GHz and up to 16 MB soldered ECC DDR3 SDRAM. Combined with its powerful I/O backbone, multiple Kontron VX3044 enable HPEC systems with an unprecedented computing density in the compact 3U form factor. With the Kontron Smart Technologies with VXFabric to use Ethernet TCP/IP over PCI Express, VXControl for monitoring and control of critical parameters, and the PBIT system test solution, OEMs have everything at hand to simplify and accelerate the development of optimized and highly reliable applications. The new SBCs have backward and upward compatible pin-out to all of the company's 3U VPX computers. Common to both SBCs are the comprehensive Ethernet connectivity with 10GBASE-KR, 1000BASE-T and 1000BASE-BX, eight lane PCI Express gen 3.0 and x1 PCI Express gen 2.0, 1x USB 3.0 and 4x USB 2.0. Storage media can be connected via 2x SATA 3 and 2x SATA 2, both with RAID 0/1/5/10 support. As an option, on-board soldered SATA-Flash is available to host OS and application code. Three DisplayPort interfaces provide the increased graphics power of the integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 to three independent monitors. The SBCs can be ordered as a stand-alone platform or as an integral part of the new multi-mission rugged computer system ApexVX for the rapid deployment of a broad range of military and avionics applications. The company also offers a suitable lab development system to simplify application development and minimize time-to-market. The new SBCs are available now and support Windows Embedded Standard 7, Linux and VxWorks.
