The VPX6000 is a low-power, high-availability VPX blade designed for the harsh environments of defense and aerospace applications

ADLINK announces rugged SWaP-optimized 6U VPX radar solution

ADLINK Technology today announced the VPX6000, a rugged 6U VPX blade featuring a dual processor design based on quad-core 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7-4700EQ processors. The VPX6000 is a high performance blade designed to meet MIL-STD-810F, for harsh environments and provide the high-availability required for mission critical applications, including radar, sonar, UAV and UGV in defense and aerospace.

The two CPU sub-systems are connected by PCIe x8 Gen2 non-transparent bridge. The VPX6000 is a SWaP-optimized platform designed to meet defense industry requirements for operation in harsh environments across wide operating temperature ranges (-40°C to +75°C at wedge-lock) and withstanding high shock and vibration, while having a maximum power consumption of only 160W.

With the ADLINK VPX6000, system integrators can map multiple functions such as control, graphics and signal processing onto one blade, or run dual independent systems, thus reducing the card count and required number of spares and simplifying logistical support in the field. The VPX6000 also supports multiple operating systems, including Windows Embedded, Linux and VxWorks, providing flexibility for system design.

The VPX6000 provides all-in-one manageability, including SmartFusion IPMC, built-in Self Test (BIT), and Intel® AMT. With the high availability failover support provided by these features, system operation can be monitored and managed remotely and problems prevented or immediately corrected to avoid critical system crashes.

The ADLINK VPX6000 provides flexibility and reliability with rich and fast I/O including VGA, GbE and 2x USB 3.0 on the front panel, and HDMI/DVI, 3x USB 3.0, 2x serial ports, PS/2 keyboard/mouse, 8x GPIO and audio to the backplane. In addition, an expansion plane of 2x PCIe x8 Gen2 with DMA is provided. The VPX60000 supports 16GB soldered dual-channel DDR3L ECC memory and upgradeable storage via SSD mezzanine card for flexible and rugged storage compared to traditional hard disk drives.
