XCalibur1840 6U VPX SBC

The XCalibur1840 is a high-performance, 6U VPX, single board computer supporting NXP (formerly Freescale) QorIQ T4 processors. With 12 dual-threaded Power Architecture® e6500 cores running at up to 1.8 GHz, the T4240 delivers enhanced performance and efficiency for today’s embedded computing applications.

The T4240 brings raw multi-core power, along with three-channel DDR3 memory and a high-performance 128-bit AltiVec unit per core to deliver unparalleled performance. For more power conscious applications, the T4160 processor offers eight dual-threaded e6500 cores and the T4080 processor offers four dual-threaded e6500 cores, both running at up to 1.8 GHz with two-channel DDR3 memory and all within a significantly reduced power envelope.

The XCalibur1840 is a powerful, feature-rich solution for the next generation of compute-intensive embedded applications. Wind River VxWorks, Linux, and Green Hills INTEGRITY-178 tuMP Board Support Packages (BSPs) are available. Wind River VxWorks and Linux BSPs may optionally be paired with the NXP hypervisor software to facilitate secure partitioning.
