The AcroExpress® VPX6600 is a high-performance 3U OpenVPXTM embedded single board computer based on the 6th Generation Skylake Intel® Xeon® processor and PCH. Designed for COTS applications this Intel SBC utilizes the Intel C230 series PCH chipset for extensive I/O support. Heat is managed with a fully integrated heatsink for advanced cooling management. The VPX6600 doesn’t consume I/O space and offers specialized I/O on P2.

Intel 6th Generation

Whether you’re looking for a tech refresh to update your legacy systems or starting a new application, Intel processors deliver significant performance advancements such as: enhanced microarchitecture, integrated graphics, and expanded memory performance with up to 32GB of high-bandwidth DDR4 memory and ECC memory controllers. This board is designed and manufactured to meet VITA 46.0 and has at least a 7-year life expectancy. Cutting-edge technology features programmable power limits, allowing the user to “dial-down” the maximum power consumption of the CPU in systems where power is a concern. The VPX6600 also takes advantage of Intel Advanced Vector Extensions 2.0 for enhanced performance on floating point-intensive applications and Hyper-Threading Technology that enables each core to use two software threads for more efficient use of the CPU.


Supports either one or two DDR4 ECC SODIMMs, for a total of up to 32GB removable memory. The SODIMMs are firmly attached to the module with screws for easy replacement and surrounded by heat sink material to provide a mechanically and thermally robust mechanism. These processors feature a M.2 Flash storage site perfect for solid-state storage application.

Operating System Software

The VPX6600 is supported for use with Microsoft Windows® 7/8, VxWorksTM and Linux.
