Wixom-based Acromag, a designer and manufacturer of hi-tech industrial electronics, today announced the release of the AcroExpress VPX6600, a single board computer (SBC) that utilizes the sixth generation Skylake Intel Xeon processor and C230 PCH chipset for extensive input/output support. The expanded memory performance comes with up to 32 gigabytes that are firmly attached to the board, but are removable for security or upgrades.
This SBC is designed for commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) applications and manufactured to have a 7-year minimum life expectancy. A conduction-cooled version is also offered and boards start at less than $6,300.
"Acromag offers C libraries for VxWorks and other operating systems. These libraries provide generic routines (source code included) to handle reads, writes, interrupts, and other functions. This diagnostic tool can save hours of troubleshooting and debugging" says Russell Nieves, Acromag's director of embedded sales.
The SBC also includes data and expansion planes, Ethernet ports, USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, DisplayPort 1.2 ports, SATA III ports, and audio. The Data Plane and Expansion Plane interfaces can be used to interconnect multiple VPX6600's or to provide PMC/XMC support. The COTS product line of AcroExpress processor boards are RoHS compliant and ideal military applications that requires extensive specialized input/output support with advanced cooling management.
