Maximize Performance with Embedded Modules from X-ES

The XPand6215 is a Small Form Factor (SFF) system comprised of two 3U VPX modules. In the first slot, the XPedite7670 single board computer features an Intel® Xeon® D-1500 (formerly Broadwell-DE) processor, offering up to 16 Xeon®-class cores in a single, power-efficient System-on-Chip (SoC) package. The XPedite7670 hosts an XPort3305 10 Gigabit Ethernet XMC module, which provides a 10GBASE-SR Ethernet port through a fiber connector on the XPand6215 front panel.

Eight lanes of PCI Express Gen3 connect the XPedite7670 to the XPedite2570 in the second slot. This high-performance, reconfigurable FPGA processing module is based on the powerful Xilinx Kintex® Ultrascale™ XCKU115 FPGA. The XPedite2570 provides twelve high-data-rate, protocol-independent fiber-optic transmitters and receivers, accessible through a second fiber connector on the XPand6215 front panel.

Designed to Meet Rigorous Defense Standards

This fully rugged 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.
