X-ES Introduces Development Platform for 3U cPCI Conduction-Cooled Modules

Extreme Engineering Solutions, Inc. (X-ES) is shipping the XPand1201, a 3U CompactPCI development platform for conduction-cooled modules. This platform supports up to eight 3U CompactPCI modules and two optional power supply modules.

With support for Rear Transition Modules (RTMs), the XPand1201 provides maximum I/O flexibility and the ability to rapidly prototype deployable systems. The XPand1201 supports up to 482 W of total simultaneous power delivery and a thermal dissipation of up to 60 W per slot. Weighing 20 lbs. (including backplane and power supply) and measuring 16.5 in. (H) x 5.5 in. (W) x 11.5 in. (L), the XPand1201 provides 100% hardware compatibility from development to deployment.

The XPand1201 can be populated with conduction-cooled 3U CompactPCI modules from X-ES, such as:

  • XPedite5430: NXP (formerly Freescale) QorIQ eight-core P4080 processor-based Single Board Computer (SBC), that also supports P3041, P4040, P5010, and P5020 processors
  • XPedite5530: NXP (formerly Freescale) QorIQ dual-core P2020 processor-based SBC, that also supports P1011, and P2010 processors
  • XPedite7332: Dual-core Intel® Core™ i7 processor-based SBC with VMware Hypervisor (aka ESXi 5.0 Update 1) support
  • XPedite7431: 2nd/3rd generation quad- or dual-core Intel® Core™ i7 processor-based SBC
  • XChange1200: 3U cPCI carrier card supports XMC and PMC modules for application-specific I/O
  • Cisco® 5940 Embedded Services Router (ESR)

Software support on the SBCs above includes, Linux, VxWorks, INTEGRITY, Windows (Intel® boards only), and other RTOS offering per customer request. The Cisco 5940 Router runs Cisco IOS® software.

The XPand1201 is available for purchase in several rapid-development, standard configurations. Custom configurations of modules, RTMs, and backplanes are also available utilizing X-ES and third party components.
