Emerson Network Power today announced a new 3U OpenVPX processor board designed to provide high compute performance, flexibility, and high speed fabric connectivity for a range of industrial, communication and military/aerospace applications.
The iVPX7225 is based on the dual-core third generation Intel Core i7 2.5 GHz processor, featuring the new Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) floating point instructions, with integrated graphics and memory controller and the mobile Intel QM77 PCH chipset with leading edge I/O functionality. It combines the significantly improved floating-point performance of the Intel Core i7 processor with the substantial bandwidth and system-enabling features of the 3U OpenVPX form factor.

The Emerson Network Power iVPX7225 is designed to operate in a wide range of OpenVPX enclosures, including the company’s VPX3000 system platform also launched today. On-board memory includes up to 16 GB DDR3L-1600 memory, embedded USB flash, and 1 MByte nonvolatile Ferroelectric Random Access Memory (F-RAM). The iVPX7225 offers both PCI Express high speed data plane fabric connectivity and Gigabit Ethernet control plane connectivity with data transfer rates up to 5 Gbps. Additional connectivity includes three USB 2.0 ports, two serial ports, three SATA ports, eight GPIO, DisplayPort, VGA and one XMC site for maximum flexibility.

“Many of our customers are developing demanding applications for highly constrained environments in terms of size, weight and power and Emerson Network Power’s iVPX7225 provides an outstanding solution,” said Eric Gauthier, vice president product marketing for Emerson Network Power’s Embedded Computing business. “Available as a fully rugged single board computer for extreme environments with extended shock, vibration, temperatures and conduction or air cooling, it provides an exceptionally versatile platform for a wide range of High Performance Embedded Computing (HPEC) applications.”

The iVPX7225 software support includes UEFI compliant BIOS with password protection and a wide range of operating systems including Wind River VxWorks 6.9 and Linux 3.x.
