Introduction

Building on Kontron's successful VX3058, the VX305C-40G 3U VPX Single Board Computer leverages the new VITA 65 (OpenVPX) SLT3-PAY-1F1F2U1TU1T1U1T-14.2.16 I/O intensive slot profile to bring 40 Gigabit Ethernet performance to 3U systems. Using the highly integrated 12-core Intel® Xeon® D processor, the VX305C-40G complements the 40 Gigabit Ethernet Data Plane (40GBASE-KR4) with a 4-lane PCI Express 3.0 expansion plane, dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet Control Plane (10GBASE-KR), and a rich assortment of user I/O including SAT III, USB (2 and 3), serial links, video (HDMI, with DisplayPort available in 2019), GPIO, and an XMC site with backplane user mapping. As a result, it is a SWaP-C optimized computing platform suitable for a wide range of applications. The ITAR-free VX305C-40G is the first instance of a new fully-defined OpenVPX SBC profile designed for I/O intensive workloads.

VX305C 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

Rugged By Design

The high-performance VX305C-40G is available in both air-cooled (for lab or other benign deployed environments) and conduction-cooled Plug-in units as per VITA 48.2 Type 2, Secondary Side Retainer. This enables the VX305C-40G to sustain 70°C card edge temperature according to VITA 47 XMC support. The VX305C-40G is also available with a VITA 48 Ruggedized Enhanced Design Implementation (REDI) Two-Level Maintenance bottom cover option.

Additional Features and Advantages

System health and maintenance is a key differentiator of the VX305C-40G.  Provided by the combination of a Kontron-designed VITA 46.11 compatible Intelligent Platform Management Controller (IPMC) for centralized system health and management, and Kontron's Power-On Built-In Test (PBIT) package with its innovative “Reference Learn” approach, the VX305C-40G brings a new level of system health and management capabilities to rugged deployed systems.  These built-in features can be augmented by Kontron's CMON Linux Health Monitoring Engine, which creates a continuous flow of health data from customizable test points for either remote or local monitoring.

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 communicates silicon reliability is 10 years. A comprehensive Health Management is optionally available to support easy field maintenance. All this makes the VX305C an ideal candidate for long-term programs.
