VPX3-1259 3U VPX Intel Core i7 Broadwell SBC
The VPX3-1259 from Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions is a high performance Single Board Computer (SBC) featuring the 5th Generation Intel Core i7 (Broadwell) processor. Pin-compatible with our previous generations of Intel SBCs, the VPX3-1259 offers the highest performance Intel processing in the smallest 3U form factor.
The Intel Core i7 processor offers Quad-Core (8-thread) performance with Turbo mode support. With up to 16 GB of dual-channel high speed ECC-protected DDR3 memory, the VPX3-1259 provides up to 25.6 GB/s memory throughput, maximizing the capabilities of the processor. The processor also features AVX and AVX2 SIMD extensions, accelerating math-intensive algorithms. The Intel Core i7 processor includes an enhanced Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200 (GT3e) GPU, offering discrete GPU performance with OpenGL for graphics-intensive applications, and also serving as a 40-core GPGPU with OpenCL support for data processing-intensive applications.
With up to 32 GB of high speed SATA flash memory, the VPX3-1259 3U OpenVPX Intel Single Board Computer is ideal for handling complex applications with demanding sensor processing requirements, or high speed data processing, logging and storage needs.
The VPX3-1259 also features high speed PCI Express (PCIe) Gen3 connectivity. The VPX backplane supports eight lanes of configurable PCIe fabric, offering NTB ports and supporting 8-lane, 4-lane, and 2-lane port widths. A local XMC mezzanine site supports an independent 8-lane PCIe Gen3 bus directly to the processor. These features make the VPX3-1259 Intel SBC an ideal building block when architecting systems requiring processor expansion or when connecting multiple processor boards together to create a high performance embedded system for ISR processing.
The VPX3-1259 is supported with an extensive suite of industry-standard operating systems such as Linux (Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)), VxWorks, and Microsoft Windows Embedded.
