ADLINK Technology has introduced the cPCI-6940 processor blade featuring the Intel Xeon processor D-1500 and AMD Radeon E8860 embedded GPU. The cPCI-6940 6U CompactPCI processor blade offers up to 16-core computing power and high-performance graphics in a robust design. With an extended operating temperature range of -45 to 85 degrees C and 16 Gbytes of DDR4 soldered memory, the cPCI-6940 is ideal for the rugged environments encountered by military field vehicles and naval or aerospace carriers.

The Intel Xeon processor D-1500 has a TDP of 35 to 45 W and gives the cPCI-6940 a 1.5x performance increase over its predecessor, the cPCI-6930 (8-core Intel Xeon processor E5-2448L). Server class computing capabilities include hardware virtualization and Intel AES-NI for secure transmission in the field. Graphics on the cPCI-6940 are supported by the AMD Radeon E8860 GPU.

The cPCI-6940 is available in single/dual-slot (4/8 HP) width form factor versions and offers flexible connectivity and storage options. Faceplate IO includes 1x RJ-45 serial port, 1x DisplayPort, 1x VGA, 2x GbE, and 2x USB 3.0 ports. Dual slot versions support dual integrated 10G SFP+ KR ports, while two additional 10GBASE-T ports can be configured through XMC expansion. Two DVI-D ports are routed to rear I/O. Expansion options include one PCIe x16 to J4 and one PCIe x4 to J5. Storage is provided by up to two 2.5 inch onboard SATA drives and four SATA ports routed to the backplane.
