Multi Core REDI (Vita 48) 3U OpenVPX Third Generation Intel® Core™ i7 Single Board Computer

This product is End-of-Life.

Power & Flexibility
Third Generation Core™ i7

The Orion VPX7652 Single Board Computer (SBC) is the industry’s most flexible, rugged, high-performance multi core SBC in today’s embedded marketplace.

By incorporating the power of the Intel® Third Generation CoreTM i7 and the unparalleled complement of I/O via the customer configurable “Personality Modules”, it can be adapted to practically any Military, Industrial or Commercial application.

Available in 5 levels of ruggedization, from commercial temperature air cooled (0.8” pitch) to extended temperature REDI (Vita 48.2, 0.85” pitch).

With three OpenVPX 4-lane PCI express v2.0 fabric ports and an 8-lane PCI express v2.0 XMC slot, the VPX7652 design has streamlined high-speed board-to-board communication.

The VPX7652’s two 1000Base-BX ports, two Serial ports, up to four USB 2.0 ports, eight General Purpose I/O and PMC P14 or XMC P16 I/O are all accessible through VPX connectors P1 and P2.
