This single board computer updates your legacy systems with an Intel processor that will deliver significant performance advancements.

XVME-6500A: 6U VME Intel® Core™ i7 Air Cooled Processor Board Description 

If you’re one of the thousands who depends on the continued use of your VMEbus systems you can feel confident that Acromag is there for you.

This single board computer updates your legacy systems with an Intel processor that will deliver significant performance advancements such as: enhanced microarchitecture, integrated graphics, and expanded memory performance with up to 16GB of high-bandwidth DDR3L memory and ECC memory controllers.

The XVME-6500A will add 7 to 10 years of life to your system with modern technology. This high-performance SBC features a FPGA-based VME to PCIe-bridge that solved the end of life issue with the TSI148 VME interface chip.

Cutting-edge technology features programmable power limits allowing the user to “dial-down” the maximum power consumption of the CPU in heat sensitive applications.

Ruggedized SODIMM 16GB removable memory is surrounded by heat sink material to provide a mechanically and thermally robust mechanism. The SODIMM is secured with four screws so it is easy to replace faulty memory.

The XVME-6500A 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.

Expansion Capabilities

In addition to a comprehensive range of front panel and backplane I/O features, the XVME-6500A offers increased expansion capabilities through two PMC/XMC sites on the board.

In lieu of one PMC/XMC module, the optional XBRD-9060 expansion I/O carrier module may be installed. The XBRD-9060 allows for two SSD mSATA drives, as well as another Gigabit Ethernet port, RS-232 port, and two USB 2.0 ports.

The XVME-9640 rear transition module is also available for further storage, networking, and easy access to the P2 connector I/O.
