A flight-qualified Intel Core i7-based multiprocessor system features SWaP and performance advantages along with the convenience and security of two hardware-encrypted removable SSD modules. TheXPand4208 from Extreme Engineering Solutions includes two Intel Core i7-based 3U VPX modules, an XPm2120 VITA 62 3U VPX power supply and two XPort6193 removable SSDs that allow for quick, tool-less insertion and extraction. The system utilizes an XChange3013 3U VPX Gigabit Ethernet switch mated with the XPedite5205 Cisco IOS-based router XMC to provide its backplane fabric and secure networking capabilities. This system also simplifies future upgrades and additional configurations with two 3U VPX expansion slots for additional I/O or processing capabilities and an open architecture based on the use of 3U OpenVPX (VITA 65)-compatible modules.

The SWaP-optimized XPand4200 Series systems utilize a compact, lightweight and extremely rugged forced-air heat exchanger design to maximize high-temperature performance in demanding environmental conditions, while minimizing size and weight. They also integrate a dynamic fan controller, allowing them to run nearly silent in controlled environments. 

Another example of a pre-configured, application-ready XPand4200 Series product is the XPand4206. With three XPedite7477 Intel Core i7-based 3U VPX processing modules, the XPand4206 system provides an industry-leading combination of processing performance and SWaP. The XPand4206 utilizes the 3U VPX XChange3018 to provide a high-throughput internal 10 Gigabit Ethernet fabric. The system also provides a plethora of external I/O, including three 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, twelve Gigabit Ethernet ports, twelve CAN bus channels, sixteen serial ports and six USB ports. 

The XPand4206 and XPand4208 can be configured to support Intel’s Active Management Technology (AMT). AMT allows developers and installers to remotely access diagnostic information and perform system maintenance on each processor module via a single, secure network connection. This drastically simplifies developing, installing and upgrading multiprocessor platforms by eliminating the need for separate user-accessible serial ports or keyboard, video and mouse ports from individual processor modules.
