Intel® Xeon® D Single Board Computers Now Available with Up to 16 Xeon®-Class Cores & Native Extended Temperature Support

Increased Core Counts for Enhanced Processing

Originally available with up to eight cores, the Intel® Xeon® D processors are now available with support for 12 and 16 cores in a single processor. Integrated on X-ES VPX single board computers, these high-performance, low-power processors are optimized for a variety of applications and infrastructure, including routers, network appliances, and battlefield communications.

Intel® Xeon® D processors have built-in hardware virtualization that facilitates dynamic provisioning of services, enabling communication service providers to extend network functions virtualization (NFV) further than had been possible previously.

Pairing X-ES embedded single board computer technology with the powerful computing performance of high core-count Intel® Xeon® D processors allows for expanded networking capabilities, accelerated computing, and unparalleled processing with Xeon®-class reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS).

Operate in Even Greater Extremes than Before with Native Extended Temperature Support

In response to feedback from the military and aerospace industries, Intel® now offers native extended temperature support for Intel® Xeon® D processors with up to 12 cores. Intel® designed these processors to operate between -40°C to 85°C, reducing the need for X-ES engineers to perform independent temperature screening, which expedites product availability. X-ES can perform additional testing at our on-site laboratories to ensure the desired functionality in customer-specified environmental conditions.

Thermal Monitoring Technologies protect the processor package and system from thermal failure by means of several thermal management features. An on-die Digital Thermal Sensor (DTS) detects the core’s temperature, and when required, thermal management features reduce package power consumption to lower temperatures and remain within normal operating limits. These thermal stress mitigating features help extend the life of deployed single board computers by reducing the likelihood of overheating and associated component fatigue.

Rugged, High-Performance VPX Single Board Computers

X-ES embedded single board computers with Intel® Xeon® D processors are designed and built to address the unique environmental and security challenges inherent in military and aerospace applications. Our engineers ruggedize standard Intel® Xeon® D processors with Class III PCB assemblies, underfill, conformal coating, and our innovative hybrid heatframe design to optimize size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C).

Several SBCs in the X-ES Intel® Xeon® D processor line integrate SecureCOTS™ technology with a Microsemi SmartFusion®2 security SoC or Xilinx Kintex® UltraScale™ FPGA module for hosting custom functions to protect data from being modified or observed. These user-configurable modules provide an ideal solution when stringent security capabilities are required. They are able to control, intercept, and monitor the Xeon® D subsystem, implement penalties, and interface to the system through I/O directly connected to the VPX backplane.

Circuit board enhancements and optimized Two-Level Maintenance (2LM) metalwork provide additional protection to the physical hardware.
