XPand6241

13th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 Processor-Based Rugged Small Form Factor (SFF) COTS System with 12-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Switch & Router with Cisco IOS-XE®

The XPand6241 is a true Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) rugged system based on the 13th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 series (formerly Raptor Lake-P) of processors and a Gigabit Ethernet switch hosting an XChange6300 Cisco IOS-XE® Gigabit Ethernet Embedded Services Router.

With a compact design, the XPand6241 maximizes processing and networking performance while providing a SWaP-optimized alternative to traditionally larger slot-based systems; it is an actual Small Form Factor (SFF) system based on COTS 3U VPX modules.

The XPand6241 is a true Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) rugged system based on the 13th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 series (formerly Raptor Lake-P) of processors and a Gigabit Ethernet switch hosting an XChange6300 Cisco IOS-XE® Gigabit Ethernet Embedded Services Router. With a compact design, the XPand6241 maximizes processing and networking performance while providing a SWaP-optimized alternative to traditionally larger slot-based systems; it is an actual Small Form Factor (SFF) system based on COTS 3U VPX modules.

The XPand6241’s first slot supports the XPedite8270 13th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor-based 3U VPX SBC. The XPand6241’s second slot supports the XChange3031 3U VPX 10 Gigabit Ethernet switch. The XChange3031 can be configured as a fully managed Layer 2 switch. The XChange3031 delivers full wire-speed across all of its ports and supports jumbo frames up to 10 kB. It supports IPv6 and a comprehensive set of IETF RFCs and IEEE protocols. The XChange6300 Cisco IOS-XE® router XMC installed on the XChange3031 provides highly secure data, voice, and video communications to stationary and mobile network nodes. The system supports a memory module bay to host a removable PCI Express Solid-State Drive (SSD) flash memory module.

The XPand6241 supports the rear I/O from the installed VPX modules with two circular connectors: a 130-pin connector for the SBC in the first slot, and a 93-pin connector with four integrated high-speed interface inserts for the switch in the second slot. This fully ruggedized system is designed to meet the rigorous standards of MIL-STD-810 and DO-160, while integrating the latest power-saving and performance-enhancing technology. The heat from the internal conduction-cooled modules is conducted to sidewall heat exchangers, where it is dissipated to an externally attached cold plate. The system includes an integrated MIL-STD-704 28 VDC power supply and MIL-STD-461 EMI filtering.

*X-ES tests against portions of MIL-STD-461, MIL-STD-810, and MIL-HDBK-704. Please contact factory for details.
