X-ES XPand6212 and XPand6211 rugged embedded systems

Wednesday, 13 June, 2018 | Supplied by: Metromatics Pty Ltd

The XPand6211 and XPand6212, a pair of small form factor (SFF) rugged embedded systems, are now available from Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES). With their high-performance networking and communications capabilities, the systems are suitable for applications where connectivity is key to mission success.

The systems are commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) rugged chassis, each supporting two conduction-cooled 3U VPX modules. Featuring a lightweight design with an integrated 28 VDC power supply, they are suitable for programs that demand high performance while minimising size, weight and power (SWaP). They are qualified to the rigorous MIL-STD-810 and DO-160 standards, ensuring that they can withstand punishing environmental conditions in a wide range of military and industrial applications.

Both devices support mission-critical communications with an integrated XPedite5205 XMC/PMC Embedded Services Router (ESR). The router runs Cisco IOS software with Cisco Mobile Ready Net capabilities, providing secure data, voice and video communications to stationary and mobile network nodes across wired and wireless links.

The XPand6212 optimises both processing and networking performance with the XPedite7670 3U VPX single-board computer (SBC) in one slot and the XChange3013 Gigabit Ethernet switch in the other. The SBC is a high-performance embedded computer based on the Intel Xeon D-1500 family of processors, which provide up to 16 Xeon-class cores in a single, power-efficient system-on-chip (SoC) package. The Ethernet switch hosts the router and supplies ample connectivity to the system, with a total of 14 Gigabit Ethernet ports between the switch and the router.

The XPand6211 contains an XChange3013 3U VPX Gigabit Ethernet switch in each slot, one of which hosts the router. This system maximises connectivity with a total of 24 Gigabit Ethernet ports. The Ethernet switch provides good network speed and efficiency, delivering full wire speed across all of its ports and supporting jumbo frames of up to 12 KB. The second switch hosts the XPedite8103 XMC module, a general-purpose processing unit.

The products have a modular design that can easily be adapted to program requirements.
