Eletter Product

XPand6212The XPand6212 by Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) a true Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) rugged system based on the Intel® Xeon® D-1500 family (formerly Broadwell-DE) processors and a Gigabit Ethernet switch hosting an XPedite5205 Cisco IOS® Gigabit Ethernet Embedded Services Router.

XPand6212 is one of many of Extreme Engineering Solutions' rugged embedded system which support highly secure, embedded single board computers.


Maximize Performance with Embedded Modules from X-ES

With a compact design, the XPand6212 maximizes processing and networking performance while minimizing SWaP. The XPand6212 provides a SWaP-optimized alternative to traditionally larger slot-based systems; it is an actual Small Form Factor (SFF) system based on COTS 3U VPX modules.

The XPand6212’s first slot supports the XPedite7670 Intel® Xeon® D-1500 family based 3U VPX SBC. The XPand6212's second slot supports the XChange3013 3U VPX Gigabit Ethernet switch. The XChange3013 can be configured as a fully managed Layer 2 switch or Layer 3 router. The XChange3013 delivers full wire-speed across all of its ports and supports jumbo packets up to 12 kB. It supports IPv6, Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), and a comprehensive set of IETF RFCs and IEEE protocols. The XPedite5205 Cisco IOS® Router XMC can be installed on the XChange3013 to provide highly secure data, voice, and video communications to stationary and mobile network nodes.

Designed to Meet Rigorous Defense Standards

The XPand6212 supports the rear I/O from the installed VPX modules with two 130-pin circular connectors. This fully ruggedized system is designed to meet the rigorous standards of MIL-STD-810 and DO-160, while integrating the latest power-saving and performance-enhancing technology.

The heat from the internal conduction-cooled modules is conducted to sidewall heat exchangers, where it is dissipated to the ambient environment by convection cooling or to an attached cold plate by conduction cooling. The system includes an integrated MIL-STD-704 28 VDC power supply and MIL-STD-461 EMI filtering.
