Kontron StarVX High Performance Embedded Computer (HPEC) Systems

Version 3

    Kontron’s StarVX™ is a High Performance Embedded Computer (HPEC) system that brings supercomputing I/O bandwidth and performance, previously only achieved in IT datacenters, to the field.

     

    Based only on mainstream IT technology (TCP/IP, PCIe, Intel® Processors) for greater platform support and assured longevity, the 3U VPX-based Kontron StarVX enables military systems developers to drastically reduce the process from design to field deployment of radar, sonar, autonomous vehicles and other 3D reconstruction-based systems.

     

    Co-developed with PLX Technology, the Kontron StarVX integrates 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processors that provide sustained 16 gigabytes per second (GB/s) speeds to/from the memory subsystem, while the Kontron 3U VPX platform architecture provides up to 6GB/s sustained bandwidth on the data plane through TCP/IP and 4GB/s on the PCIe backplane thanks to Kontron VXFabric™. The result is an application-ready platform that delivers up to ten times more I/O data bandwidth that can even enhance existing TCP/IP-based unmodified applications.
