IC-INT-VPX6b – Dual Intel Core i7 Gen3 SBC

Dual Intel Core i7 Gen3 SBC

With greater power, flexibility, functions and efficiency, the IC-INT-VPX6b is a concentrate of IC’s experience in high computing solutions for VPX systems.

Its two Intel® Core™ i7 Gen 3 processors (Ivy Bridge) offer unmatched technology and performance, taking advantage of all last Intel® improvements : Advanced Vector Extensions™ (AVX), Hyper-threading Technology, HD Graphics 3000 with 3D & OpenGL, Turbo Boost 2.0 at up to 3.2 GHz…

Beyond the computing power of these two processors, with one FPGA Kintex-7, two inter-domain PCI Express switches and a GigaEthernet switch, the IC-INT-VPX6b provides all the functionality of an on-board system.

The IC-INT-VPX6b is delivered with the IC Boot Loader which allows optimised power-up sequences. Our Fabric Management Software (Multiware) provides efficient data transfers and events management between PCIe domains over non transparent bridges (NTB).
