Rugged 3U VPX 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i7 Processor Blade for Radar or ISR

3U VPX Blade


The VPX3001 Series is a 3U VPX processor blade featuring the 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor with Mobile Intel® QM77 Express Chipset. The VPX3001 provides up to 8GB DDR3-1066/1333 dual channel ECC memory soldered onboard, one PCI Express x8 XMC.3 site with VITA 46.9 rear IO, and onboard soldered 32GB SLC SATA solid state drive. Rear I/O via P1 and P2 includes 2x 1000BASE-T or 2x 1000BASE-BX (BOM option), 1x SATA 6 Gb/s, 1x SATA 3 Gb/s, 2x USB 2.0, 6x GPIO, VGA, 1x RS-232, and 1x RS-232/422.

A VPX-R3001 Rear Transition Module is available to access rear I/O signals and a 9-slot 3U VPX Test Frame is available for users to validate VPX3001 functionality.

The VPX3001 Series is rugged conduction cooled with conformal coating, making it ideal for mission critical applications in radar; intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR); and UAV/UGV platforms.
