November 9, 2015 – ADLINK Technology announced CompactPCI and VPX blades  based on the Intel Xeon Processor D-1500 Product Family. These are based on 14nm technology-based, server-class Intel processors that bring intelligence to the edge for IoT,  military and transport applications where ruggedness and compute requirements are intense and space is at a premium.

The ADLINK cPCI-6940 Series is a 6U CompactPCI processor blade in single/dual-slot (4/8HP) width form factor and features the Intel Xeon processor D-1500 product family and 16GB DDR4-2133 ECC soldered memory plus 2x SODIMM supporting up to 32GB of DDR4-2133 ECC socket type memory¾with a total memory of up to 48GB. The cPCI-6940 is ideal for applications requiring high performance and good value per watt, as well as a virtualization environment and a high level of flexibility through peripheral and expansion slots.

Front panel I/O for the cPCI-6940 includes 2x GbE, 1x DisplayPort and 1x VGA, 2x USB 3.0 ports and 1x DB-9 COM port. The cPCI-6940D also offers 2x 10G SPF+ supported by the Intel Xeon Processor D-1500 Product Family SoC and XMC expansion on selected SKUs. Rear I/O signals include two GbE for PICMG 2.16, 2x DVI-I, 1x VGA (switched from front), 4x USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0, PS/2 keyboard/mouse, 3x COM, HD Audio, and 4x SATA. ADLINK also provides a selection of rear transition modules (Rs) for customers to choose from based on application needs. The cPCI-6940 Series’ extended temperature range, vibration resistance, and high computing power make it ideal for mission critical applications.

The ADLINK VPX3010 Series is a rugged, conduction-cooled 3U processor blade featuring the Intel Xeon Processor D-1500 Product Family and DDR4-2133 soldered ECC SDRAM up to 16GB. The design of the VPX3010 conforms to numerous VITA standards, including the VITA 46.0 VPX Base Standard and VITA 65 OpenVPX architecture framework for VPX.

The VPX3010 includes one 10GBASE-KX4 and up to three 1G Ethernet ports; up to PCIe x16 Gen3 interfaces supporting non-transparent bridge; and one XMC expansion slot (PCIe x8 Gen3)

with rear I/O to P2. Soldered SLC NAND flash 32GB SATA 6Gb/s storage comes standard, with expansion options available using an R. An extended temperature range of -40°C to +85°C is also supported.


“The Intel Xeon Processor D-1500 Product Family will have extended temperature processors, which Intel will make available in the first quarter of 2016. These processors support extended temperature requirements that ADLINK sees with many of our customer applications, making possible a host of new embedded solutions for extreme environments,” said Yong Luo, general manager of ADLINK’s Embedded Computing Product Segment. “In addition, this latest offering brings the performance and advanced capabilities of Intel Xeon technology to a dense, lower-power system-on-chip with integrated PCH technology and Intel Ethernet and a ball-grid array package to meet thermal design power targets, all in a compact package.”

“The Intel Xeon Processor D-1500 Product Family delivers exceptional value and unmatched performance density per watt with enhanced reliability, availability, and serviceability capabilities (RAS) thermal design power (TDP) ranging from 19W to 45W," said Samuel Cravatta, product line director, Internet of Things Group. "Customers are able to achieve hardware and software scalability with existing development tools and processes, which are perfect for supporting a complete product line that meets a range of IoT requirements—all while saving valuable time and resources."
