Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) introduces the XPedite7683, a
secure, high performance, 3U OpenVPX single board computer based on the
Intel Xeon D-1500 family of processors.
Delivering revolutionary processing speeds, the new 3U OpenVPX SBC offers
up to 16 Xeon-class cores, up to 32 GB of DDR4-2133 ECC SDRAM, and XMC
support, making it an optimal choice for computationally heavy applications
requiring maximum data and information protection.
The XPedite7683 integrates SecureCOTS technology with
a Microsemi SmartFusion2 security SoC for hosting custom functions to protect
data from being modified or observed, providing an ideal solution when
stringent security capabilities are required.
The Microsemi SmartFusion2 can control, intercept, and monitor the Xeon D
subsystem, implement penalties, and interface to the system through GPIO
directly connected to the VPX backplane. Circuit board enhancements and
optimised Two-Level Maintenance (2LM) metalwork provide additional protection
to the physical hardware.
The XPedite7683 maximises network performance with two 10 Gigabit
Ethernet interfaces and two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. It accommodates up to
32 GB of DDR4-2133 ECC SDRAM in two channels and up to 256 GB of
onboard SATA NAND flash in addition to numerous I/O ports, including USB, SATA,
and RS-232/422/485 through the backplane connectors. The XPedite7683 provides
additional expansion capabilities with an integrated XMC site, which includes an
x8 PCIe connection to the Intel Xeon D processor and X12d I/O mapped
directly to the VPX backplane connectors.
Wind River VxWorks and X-ES Enterprise Linux Support Packages (XEL)
are available. The XPedite7683 uses coreboot, powered by Intel’s Firmware
Support Package (FSP), to provide fast boot times and significantly simplify
code traceability over legacy BIOS implementations.
Purpose-built to meet the extensive demands of modern,
security-conscious computing, XPedite7683 comes standard with integrated
SecureCOTS technology to protect critical information and a Microsemi SoC for
hosting custom functions.
