ADLINK Introduces 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i7 Processor-Based 6U CompactPCI® Blade with Remote Management

Version 1

    ADLINK's cPCI-6520 is a 6U single-slot CompactPCI® (cPCI) processor blade designed for mission critical applications such as robust computer makers, intelligent system integrators and military sectors. With its 22nm 3rd generation quad- and dual-core Intel® Core™ i7 and Mobile Intel® QM77 Express Chipset with dual channel DDR3-1333/1600 ECC memory up to 16GB capacity, the cPCI-6520 delivers tremendous computing power, massive I/O and memory capacity, and flexible connectivity for robust computing applications requiring server class performance. The cPCI-6520 is a performance computing solution with enhanced management features such as PICMG 2.9 compliant IPMI, remote management based on Intel® vPro™ technology and optional Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for security management. Wide temperature range support is available up to -40°C to 85°C (operating).

     

    The ADLINK cPCI-6520 Series offers oustanding processing and graphics performance for applications requiring reliable, scalable CompactPCI® products with the latest quad-core CPU, 2D/3D graphics engine with multiple displays. Three independent display functionality is provided via two dual-mode DisplayPorts and DVI/VGA graphics interfaces. The DisplayPort interface supports single-link DVI or HDMI with a passive adapter cable and analog VGA output via an active adapter cable. When coupled with a ADLINK XMC-G460 graphics module installed in the XMC site or an ADLINK cPCI-R6700 Rear Transition Module, the cPCI-6520 Series supports up to four independent displays.

     

    On-card connectivity includes two front panel GbE egress ports, three USB 3.0 ports, bootable CompactFlash socket, on board 7-pin SATA 6Gb/s connector for external storage device and SATA 6Gb/s direct connector for an onboard 2.5" drive to provide flexible storage capabilities. The cPCI-6520 also provides a PMC/XMC expansion site supporting 64-bit 133MHz PCI modules or PCI Express x8 XMC modules. Rear I/O storage interface includes up to three SATA ports with RAID 0/1/5/10 support and up to eight SAS ports supporting hardware RAID by the cPCI-R6200 RTM.

     

    The cPCI-6520 Series can operate in a system slot as a master or in a peripheral slot as a standalone blade for high density computing applications. The cPCI-6520 provides dual channel DDR3-1333/1600 with ECC up to 16GB with one channel soldered onboard up to 8GB and one channel socket up to 8GB. The flexible memory design ensures that the cPCI-6520 is a reliable platform for ruggedized applications. The cPCI-6520 is also validated for reliability in extended temperature conditions ranging from -20°C to 70°C. Select SKUs can support extreme temperatures ranging from -40°C to 85°C with optional conformal coating.

     

    Compatible operating systems for the cPCI-6520 include Windows XP, Windows 7, Fedora 16, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2 and VxWorks 6.9.
