WOBURN, Mass. Concurrent Technologies, a supplier of processor solutions for demanding environments, is now shipping deployment quantities of its rugged, conduction-cooled TR E5x/msd-RCx processor board. The board has now passed all the prerequisite qualification tests, which include storage and operation over extreme temperature ranges, as well as reliable operation when subjected to three-axis shock and random vibration tests according to the VITA 47 standard. As a result, TR E5x/msd-RCx is available for use in the type of harsh environments encountered in some military, defense, transportation, and industrial applications.

TR E5x/msd-RCx is a 3U VPX board based on a quad-core device from the Intel Xeon processor E3-1500 v5 family and has 16GB of DDR4 ECC DRAM for high-performance command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance applications. In addition to a wide assortment of on-board I/O interfaces, an XMC expansion site enables customers to add application-specific storage and I/O with up to 24 single-ended and 20 differential pairs traced through to the backplane.

Concurrent Technologies offers complementary products, including a Gen 3 PCI Express switch, XMC carriers, and mass storage boards, as well as software and firmware to help system integrators create class leading solutions.

“The release of this TR E5x/msd rugged product, following on from its earlier release at commercial grade, further demonstrates our commitment to providing our customers with products that can be used in a variety of applications and environments,” Glen Fawcett, CEO of Concurrent Technologies, comments. “These products are designed, manufactured and tested at our in-house facilities giving us control over all aspects of the hardware and complementary firmware and software products, providing our customers with a high standard of support and ongoing supply.”
