Two VME SBCs to implement latest processor

The XVB603 and XVR19 6U VME single board computers (SBCs) have been announced by Abaco Systems, which are based on the seventh generation Intel technology codenamed ‘Kaby Lake’. The boards are designed to cover the full range of VME processing applications from industrial control through to fully rugged, mission critical defence and aerospace deployments.

The SBCs are said to provide cost effective and low risk upgrades for users of previous XVB and XVR products, bringing enhanced processor performance, enhanced storage and improved protection against obsolescence.

The XVB603 is targeted at air-cooled, front I/O application in benign environments typically found in industrial or sheltered defence settings.

The XVR19 is a fully rugged offering, with both rugged air-cooled and conduction-cooled versions, targeted at command and control applications typical of the defence and aerospace markets on land, sea and air.

The SBCs are both based on the seventh generation Intel Xeon E3-1505M v6 Intel processor which offers integrated graphics and memory controller together with quad core processing of up to 3.0GHz.

In addition to a range of on board I/O features, the SBCs also offer on board mezzanine expansion sites for enhanced system flexibility. Memory resources include up to 16GB of soldered DDR4 SDRAM.

According to the company, a range of software choice is planned for the SBCs, including comprehensive Deployed Test Software (BIT and BCS) and AXIS, plus operating system support for Windows 10, Open Linux, Wind River Linux and VxWorks.
