  • Poway, CA May 2, 2015 – A global market leader for embedded computing technology (ECT), Kontron announces it is shipping its high performance 3U VPX board, based on the advanced 8-core version of the Intel® Xeon® Processor D architecture (Broadwell DE). The highly integrated Kontron VX3058 brings server class computing capabilities to the battlefield with its Dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), high bandwidth PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0, and high speed DDR4 memory. Ruggedized for harsh environments and size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C) optimized, the VX3058 provides breakthrough digital signal processing (DSP) performance. These benefits make it ideal for demanding military server and other high performance embedded computing (HPEC) applications, especially for virtual machine architectures that can take advantage of the extensive capital and operational efficiencies provided by isolated workloads configured to dynamically share common resources. Kontron will display the advanced capabilities of its VX3058 at AUVSI-XPONENTIAL, May 2-5 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, New Orleans at booth #779, Hall 1. “Kontron’s successful integration of this type of server-class CPU in a power envelope compatible with harsh environmental conditions signals the advent of a new era of powerful rugged parallel servers. Now system designers can solve with a single architecture a very diverse set of computing problems such as advanced imaging for unmanned systems, sensor processing in radar and sonar applications, massive parallel computing for cyber security and data analytics and IT server consolidation through virtualization,” said Vincent Chuffart, Product Portfolio Manager for Kontron. “This marks truly disruptive technology that helps define systems of systems in the defense domain aligning with requests of many of our strategic customers. The VX3058 innovatively enables developers to offer versatile solutions based on a limited set of computer building blocks, thereby reducing costs while accelerating time to deployment.” The Kontron VX3058 in Detail The Kontron VX3058 provides two 10 GBASE-KR ports and 8 lanes Gen3 PCI Express to the backplane. Providing more capabilities in a 3U footprint, the VX3058 also offers versatile mezzanine options for XMC, storage, graphics, M.2, and I/O. The M.2 interface can be used for storage or for integration of customized personality modules. Front I/O module options are selectable for DVI/HDMI, Ethernet or other interfaces. The Kontron VxFabricTM provides a unique API that extends the TCP/IP protocol over the PCI Express infrastructure that when combined with Kontron's advanced switch technologies, enables significantly higher I/O bandwidth. The Kontron VX3058 is pin compatible with the company’s popular and previous generation VX3044 3U VPX board, which already deploys 10 gigabit (G) Ethernet and PCIe gen3 on the OpenVPX backplane. Options include a shelf manager for centralized health management, sequenced system power-up and Temperature/Power/Performance management as well as Power-On Built-in Test (PBIT) that give designers a comprehensive package for board and system diagnosis.
