Quimper, France, July, 12 2021 ---- Interface Concept, a leading designer and manufacturer of embedded boards and systems for industrial and defense applications, is introducing the IC-ARM-VPX3b, a 3U VPX Single Board Computer based on a LX2080A/LX2160A Arm multicore communication processor from NXP’s QorIQ™ Layerscape family. The LX2080A model features 8 Arm® Cortex®-A72 32/64 bit cores, running at 1.8 GHz, 2.0GHz or 2.2GHz It is particularly suited for applications requiring optimized power dissipation. As for the LX2160A model, it comes with 16 Arm® Cortex®-A72 32/64 bit cores (up to 2.2GHz) and is ideal for high-processing applications.
The IC-ARM-VPX3b features up to 32GB of DDR4-ECC and several storage capabilities (M.2 slot, eMMC, F-RAM) which enable system designers to meet large centralized systems’ topology demands and handle heavy traffic scenarios on specific backplane segments.
The IC-ARM-VPX3b, partially compliant with VITA 65.0 Slot Profile SLT3-PAY-1F4F2U-14.2.14, provides multiple 10G/40G Ethernet and PCIe Gen2/3 interfaces available on the VPX backplane connectors, for high bandwidth connections.
“Not only this board provides an unparalleled computing performance with the NXP Arm® processor, but also features powerful packet processing offload, Ethernet controllers and security features in a single-slot of a 3U VPX system. It is a perfect fit for HPEC 3U VPX systems” said Franck Lefèvre, Sales Manager at Interface Concept.
This board complies with VITA 46.0 and 65.0 standards. It includes a boot loader firmware for initialization. A Board Support Package is available for Linux or VxWorks RTOS. Optional board accessories include an Engineering kit for debug (JTAG/COP,vconsole) and a 3U Rear Transition Module for development purposes. This rugged board is available in air-cooled and conduction-cooled versions.
Interface Concept has released a similar 3U VPX board, based on the same processors, the IC-ARM-VPX3a, which is aligned with the SOSA™ Technical Standard. This board features 10, 25, 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces.
INTERFACE CONCEPT is a leader in the design and manufacturing of high-performance embedded board and systems, aimed at ground, naval, air and industrial applications. The company markets Commercial-Off-The- Shelf (COTS) board-level products, based on industrial standards (3U/6U VPX, cPCI, VME, FMC, XMC, PMC) and high-end technologies. Product ranges include Gigabit Ethernet switches, Single Board Computers, FPGA processing boards, Analog and digital acquisition mezzanine cards (ADC/DAC), and 2D/3D graphic solutions.
