Kontron fortsætter opdateringen af 3U single-board computere
Kontron opdaterer som en del af firmaets support af den såkaldte SOSA standard, firmaets VX305C-40G og VX305H-40G SBC'er med nye funktioner og features (in english).
Kontron announces that as part of its ongoing support of the developing SOSA Technical Standard, it has upgraded the VX305C-40G 3U OpenVPX Single Board Computer (SBC) to align with SOSA Technical Standard Snapshot 3, released in July 2020.
This important update replaces the mini-SATA Solid State Drive with a faster and larger capacity NVMe SSD. In addition, a new non-SOSA variant of the VX305H-40G is now available that offers additional industry-standard I/Os such as USB, SATA, general-purpose I/O, and XMC mapped pins.
In response to customer requests for better performance and greater flexibility from its SOSA-aligned products, Kontron has executed a mid-life update to its popular VX305C-40G I/O Intensive Single-Board Computer (SBC) and VX305H-40G Compute Intensive SBC.
The VX305C-40G has been updated to change the SATA III Solid State Drive (SSD) to a higher-performance and larger NVMe SSD. The new VX305C-40G design will offer a 4-lane PCI Express interface to the M.2-based NVMe drive. In addition, the default drive will increase to 260 Gigabytes, with larger sizes also available. This change will increase SSD write performance by 166% and read performance by 314%.
A new non-SOSA aligned variant of the VX305H-40G is also now available. This new variant adds a P2 connector with an HDMI or Display Port++ video interface, SATA III storage port, two USB2 and one USB3 ports (with power), 1000BASE-T Ethernet, three GPIO signals, and 16 single-ended and 8 differential pairs of XMC I/O (X16s+X8d). This variant is ideal for applications that do not require SOSA alignment but which can benefit from 40 Gigabit Ethernet and a wide, 8-lane PCIe Gen3 Expansion Plane port.
- These updates to the VX305C-40G and VX305H-40G further extend the capabilities of these popular SBCs, says Matthias Huber, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, North America.
- We are committed to provide the best SBC solutions for both the SOS™ and non-SOSA VPX markets.
The SOSA Technical Standard is being developed by the SOSA Consortium, a voluntary, consensus-based member consortium of The Open Group, a vendor-neutral technology standards organization. The SOSA Consortium is a government, industry and academic alliance developing an open technical standard for sensors and C5ISR systems.
