3U VPX Development System for Multiple Processing-Node Applications
Concurrent Technologies announces the release of the latest addition to their range of development systems. The SY VPX/507 is a free-standing, centrally switched, 7-slot 3U VPX development system designed to aid in bench development of applications where the computation power of multiple SBCs are required.
To enable rapid development the SY VPX/507 comes pre-installed with two dual core processor SBCs (supporting the 2nd generation Intel Core processor) with on-board flash, associated rear-transition modules and a fabric switch board.

Typical applications include industrial control, transport, aerospace, security and defense applications. An additional 4 slots are available for system expansion. The pre-installed boards supplied by Concurrent Technologies are compatible with the OpenVPX (VITA 65) specification.

The SY VPX/507 is based on an EMC enclosure, incorporating an integrated power supply and cooling fans, providing the user with a total of seven slots: one slot is reserved for the fabric switch; one slot is reserved for the system controller SBC; the remaining five slots can be populated with SBC's or peripheral cards. The backplane is compliant with the OpenVPX BKP3-CEN07-15.2.3.n profile, interconnecting each of the six slots with the fabric switch via a PCI Express (PCIe) fat pipe on the data plane and a 1000 Base-BX (SerDes) link on the control plane.

Concurrent Technologies provides a range of additional 3U VPX modules to further enable customization of the SY VPX/507 development system - including SBCs, Fabric Switches, Mass Storage solutions and Carrier Boards.

Glen Fawcett, CEO for Concurrent Technologies, commented, The SY VPX/507 development system leverages the latest technologies from our portfolio of 3U OpenVPX compliant products to provide our customers with a unique solution to reduce their time from development to deployment. This demonstrates our capability of providing our customers with a rich eco-system of products to enable quick and easy integration at the system level.

The TR 803/592 supports many of today’s leading operating systems, including Linux, Windows, VxWorks and QNX, thereby making the SY VPX/507 suitable for a wide range of user configured applications. In addition, the SY VPX/507 is supported by Concurrent Technologies’ Fabric Interconnect Networking Software (FIN-S) which provides a high performance, low latency, communications mechanism for multiple host boards to intercommunicate across high speed serial fabrics like PCI Express (PCIe).
