XCalibur4643 6U VPX SBC

The XCalibur4643 is a high-performance, 6U OpenVPX™, multiprocessing, single board computer that is ideal for ruggedized systems requiring high-bandwidth processing and low power consumption.

Featuring Intel® Xeon® D-1500 family processors, a Xilinx Kintex® UltraScale™ FPGA, two 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports on the dataplane, and three x4 PCI Express Gen3-capable interfaces on the expansion plane, the XCalibur4643 delivers enhanced performance and efficiency for today’s embedded computing applications.

The integrated SecureCOTS™ technology can protect critical data from being modified or observed and provides an ideal solution where stringent security capabilities are required.

The XCalibur4643 provides up to 32 GB of DDR4-2133 ECC SDRAM in two channels, two XMC/PrPMC slots, and up to 64 GB of SATA NAND flash. The XCalibur4643 also supports up to four Gigabit Ethernet ports, four SATA ports, two USB ports, and up to five RS-232/422/485 serial ports out the back panel connectors. It supports one Gigabit Ethernet port, one USB 3.0 port, and one RS-232 serial port out the front panel connectors.

The XCalibur4643 is a powerful, feature-rich solution for the next generation of compute-intensive embedded applications. Wind River VxWorks, X-ES Enterprise Linux (XEL), and Microsoft Windows 7 BSPs are available.
