MIDDLETON, Wis., 6 Jan. 2011. Extreme Engineering Solutions Inc. (X-ES) in Middleton, Wis., is introducing the XPedite7470 conduction- or air-cooled 3U VPXsingle-board computer based on the 2nd generation Intel Core i7 processor. The XPedite7470, the first of six standard-form-factor embedded computing products from X-ES based on the second-generation Core i7, uses the processor's quad-core technology for deployed military applications.
For floating-point intensive applications such as radar, image processing, and signals intelligence, XPedite7470 offers the performance boost from the Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel AVX).
The XPedite7470 has Quad-core Intel Core i7-2715QE processor with Intel Hyper-Threading Technology; as much as 8 gigabytes of DDR3-1333 ECC SDRAM in two channels; 32 megabytes of boot flash and as much as 16 gigabytes of user flash; an XMC/PrPMC site; two x4 Gen2 PCI Express VPX backplane interconnects; two optional 10/100/1000BASE-T or 1000BASE-BX Ethernet ports; two optional USB 2.0 high-speed ports; two optional SATA 3.0 or 6.0 gigabits per second ports; and two DVI graphics ports.
X-ES is teaming with RunTime Computing Solutions LLC in Birmingham, Ala., to support applications able to take advantage of the SIMD architecture of Intel AVX. All X-ES products based on the second-generation Core i7 will support VSI/Pro, the math and signal processing library available from RunTime Computing.
The XPedite7470 initially will be based on the Intel Core i7-2715QE processor and Intel QM67 Express chipset. Other XPedite7470 processor options will be available by this March. For more information contact X-ES online at www.xes-inc.com, or RunTime Computing Solutions at www.runtimecomputing.com.
