Press Release

2nd generation Intel® Core processors on 3U OpenVPX form factor.


January 2011 - Concurrent Technologies announces the first 3U OpenVPX high performance embedded Single Board Computer featuring the 2nd generation Intel® Core processor and Intel® 6 series chipsets from the Intel® embedded roadmap. The TR 80x/39x features the enhanced processing and graphics performance of the quad-core Intel® Core i7-2715QE processor and the dual-core Intel® Core i5-2515E processor whilst maintaining the power consumption of the previous Intel® Core processors.

Applications for the TR 80x/39 are expected in real-time, military embedded, aerospace and transportation systems for data acquisition, control systems and video signal processing.

The TR 80x/39x is a 3U OpenVPX processor board providing support for quad-core or dual core 2nd generation Intel® Core processors, up to 8Gbyte of ECC DDR3 SDRAM, configurable PCI Express® fabric interface supporting 1 x8, 2 x4, 1 x4 + 1 x4 at Gen 1 or Gen 2 data rates, dual Gigabit Ethernet or dual 1000Base-BX channels, dual SATA600, single XMC slot, serial RS232/422/485 port, dual USB 2.0 ports, independent VGA and display port all in a 3U VPX form factor.

The Intel® Core microarchitecture virtually doubles graphics performance of previous architectures and when complimented by support for Intel® Turbo Boost Technology capabilities and media acceleration, the TR 80x/39x Single Board Computer offers cutting edge technology for security, transportation, military and embedded systems.

Glen Fawcett, CEO of Concurrent Technologies, commented, By releasing Single Board Computers based on the 2nd generation Intel® Core processors, Concurrent Technologies endeavors to equip our customers with high performance computer-centric solutions whilst supporting todays prevalent backplane architectures. In addition to the 3U OpenVPX board, we have released a 6U VXS board featuring the 2nd generation Intel® Core processor and Intel® 6 series chipsets.

Operating systems currently supported for the release of the TR 80x/39x are Windows® 7, Windows® XP, Windows® Embedded Standard 7, Linux® and VxWorks®.

The TR 80x/39x is available in three temperature grades; 0C to +55C (N-Series), -25C to +70C (E-Series), -40C to +85C (K-Series).

For extreme rugged applications the TR 80x/39x is available in VPX-REDI variants (type 1 and type 2);

     VPX-REDI Type 1 Conduction-Cooled VITA 47 Class CC4 -40C to +85C (RCS - Series),

     VPX-REDI Type 2 Conduction-Cooled VITA 47 Class CC4 -40C to +85C (RCT - Series).
