3U VPX features processor with mobile Intel QM77 Express chipset for radar applications

ADLINK’s rugged 3U 3rd-generation Intel Core i7 processor blade was designed for radar and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) applications. The VPX-3001 Series is a 3U VPX processor blade that features the processor with mobile Intel QM77 Express chipset. It provides as much as 8 GB DDR3-1066/1333 dual-channel error-correcting code (ECC) memory soldered onboard, one PCI Express x8 XMC.3 site with .9 rear I/O, and onboard soldered 32 GB SLC SATA solid-state drive.

A VPX-R3001 rear transition module is available to access rear I/O signals, while a 9-slot 3U VPX test frame is available for users to validate VPX3001 functionality. Rear I/O via P1 and P2 includes 2x 1000BASE-T or 2x 1000BASE-BX (BOM option) interface, 1x SATA 6 Gb/s interface, 1x SATA 3 Gb/s, 2x USB 2.0, 6x GPIO, VGA, 1x RS-232, and 1x RS-232/422 interfaces. The VPX3001 Series – designed to be conduction-cooled with conformal coating – can also be designed into applications such as unmanned systems.
