Introduction

Kontron's 3u VPX blade VX3058 is based on the highly integrated 8-core Intel® Xeon® D architecture, supporting Dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet, high bandwidth PCI Express 3.0, and high speed DDR4 memory. It is consequently SWaP-C optimized with versatile mezzanine options for XMC, storage, graphics, M.2, and I/O. Combined with Kontron's advanced switch technologies and VxFabricTM for significantly higher I/O bandwidth, and combined with centralized health management, VX3058 is simply the best choice for high performance embedded computing platforms.

VX3058 brings server class applications into the battlefield.

Typical programs are

  • radar, sonar
  • imaging systems
  • airborne fighter and UAV radar
  • long term programs in harsh environments

VX3058 and leading edge architecture for Multi-CPU computing nodes.

VX3058 provides two 10 GBASE-KR ports and 8 lanes Gen3 PCI Express to the backplane. A 10 Gigabit Ethernet switch and a PCI Express Switch can be complemented with two respective single star data planes. Thanks to Kontron VxFabricTM, a unique API extends the TCP/IP protocol over the PCI Express infrastructure. Kontron’s sample turnkey system StarVX implements this architecture, enabling a significantly higher I/O bandwidth. While computing power has been continuously increasing in the past, and I/O bandwidth did not, the balance of both is back again by Kontron StarVX. VX3058 makes it a powerful, leading edge Multi-CPU computing node architecture.

Long term programs: high reliability and low Total-Cost-of-Ownership

Kontron provides a Long Term Supply program service (LTS) for over 15 years. Intel Communications silicon reliability is 10 years. A comprehensive Health Management is optionally available to support easy field maintenance. All this makes the VX3058 the ideal candidate for long term programs.
