Advantech’s MIC-6311 is a single processor VPX blade based on the Intel® 4th generation Core® i3/i5/i7 platform. It enables the highest performance available in 6U VPX form factor with two SRIOx4 ports in the VPX data plane and two PCI Express x8 gen. 3 lanes in the VPX expansion plane for workstation and compute intense applications. The two Serial RapidIO ports offer the possibility to interface the MIC-6311 to digital front ends such as DSP and FPGA cards via a high speed, low latency deterministic interconnect. In addition, PCI Express ports with up to 8GB/s throughput offer a high performance interface to mainstream peripherals and IO cards. With a SO-DIMM socket and additional soldered, onboard DRAM with ECC in a dual channel design running up to 1600MT/s, the MIC-6311 offers the ability to fit harsh environments while maintaining maximum memory throughput and supporting memory expansion using the latest SO DIMM technology. Moreover, the 4th generation Core® processors offer increased cache size and efficiency as well as instruction set improvements which make the MIC-6311 a high performance compute engine with outstanding floating point and vector processing performance.
Tailored for rugged environments, MIC-6311 has been designed to support conduction-cooling heat sinks. Additionally, it implements an onboard soldered, industrial SSD for maximum reliability. By using Intel’s latest powerful PCH (Lynx Point) with its advanced SATA controller advanced storage options are supported such as a 2.5" SATA III HDD/SSD socket offering high storage capacity with up to 6Gbps transfer speed. A CFast socket provides an alternative for implementing a cost efficient, pluggable SSD. An onboard XMC/PMC site with PCIe x8 gen.3 connectivity can host high speed offload or I/O mezzanines. Two USB 3.0 ports in front panel can connect to the external devices with up to 5Gbps data rate. Network and remote connectivity can be achieved via a RS232 console (RJ45) and two GbE RJ45 ports, powered by intel’s latest Gigabit Ethernet Controiller, the i350.
The processor’s integrated enhanced graphics engine Iris offers the up to 2x the graphic performance compared to previous generation solutions. Triple independent display support can be implemented by using the MIC-6311’s VGA front panel port and two Display port / HDMI interfaces on rear transition modules. Audio port support via the backplane interface enhances media support. Three SATA ports (SATAIII) and four USB ports (2x USB 3.0, 2x USB 3.0) are also connected to backplane to fulfill the demand for extra IO ports or storage.
Two GbE/ SERDES ports support system level IP connectivity and two UART interfaces can be leveraged to interface to legacy devices and consoles.
