StarVX Launches Gen-Next StarVX High Performance Embedded Computing system
FREMONT, CA: Kontron, a provider of embedded computing technology releases StarVX high performance embedded computing (HPEC) system based on the company’s VX3058 3U VPX single board computer (SBC), the highest performance VPX computing node.
StarVX includes server-class silicon and highly ruggedized technologies in a compact 3U blade footprint. It offers 10 times greater performance than currently deployed ruggedized HPEC architectures, meeting computer footprint reduction demands through operational computers consolidation via server virtualization. It leverages the powerful processor performance capabilities the advanced 8-core version Intel Xeon D-1540 (Broadwell DE).
The system offers the combined performance of the Intel Xeon-D with OpenStack, the open source cloud software, allowing developers to quickly and cost-effectively build multiple systems and manage diverse computing resources while also leveraging the benefits of virtualization technologies.
Kontron’s StarVX computing blades support extreme computing payloads while balancing both CPU power and I/O bandwidth for higher reliability. Each blade is connected to two 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and high bandwidth PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0 through the system backplane, while the processor uses high speed DDR4 memory to meet increased sensor data processing needs. Kontron’s VXFabric API provides a TCP/IP protocol over the PCI Express infrastructure towards the application, which helps accelerate the design process.
StarVX is suited for harsh environments, its OpenVPX-based air and conduction extends operating temperature operation and is shock, vibration, humidity and altitude tested. It is also optimized for reduced size, weight, power and cost requirements and offers central health and power management capabilities.
