SAN DIEGO – Kontron America Inc. in San Diego is introducing the VX305H-40G 3U OpenVPX single-board computer for high-performance sensor systems and demanding military signal- and image-processing applications.

The VX305H-40G uses the Intel Xeon-D microprocessor and 40/10 Gigabit Ethernet networking in a package that aligns with the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) standard, and is compatible with the U.S. Army Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) / Electronic Warfare (EW) Modular Open Suite of Standards (CMOSS) standard.

Designed to the VITA 65 slot profile SLT3-PAY-1F1F2U1TU1T1U1T-14.2.16 compute-intensive embedded computing board profile, the VX305H-40G combines the computational power of the 12-core Intel Xeon D-1559 processor with several high-performance data pipes, including a 40 Gigabit Ethernet data plane, a second 10 Gigabit Ethernet data plane, a 10 Gigabit Ethernet control plane, and an 8-lane PCI Express Gen 3 expansion plane port.

Other features of the VX305H-40G include a Kontron-designed VITA 46.11-compatible intelligent platform management controller (IPMC) to provide systemwide health management, sequenced system power-up, and temperature/power/performance management to handle image processing and other signal processing applications.

To complement this, the VX305H-40G offers a power-on built-in test (PBIT) that give designers system diagnosis. An additional layered product includes CMON -- a lightweight, user-configurable, continuous system monitoring tool.

Early field test (EFT) boards are scheduled to ship before the end of April 2019. For more information contact Kontron online at www.kontron.com.
