Concurrent: AdvancedMC module with PCI Express connectivity
Concurrent Technologies announces AM F5x/msd, a new AdvancedMC Single Module based on the Skylake microarchitecture Intel Xeon Processor E3-1500 v5 family. With high performance PCI Express Gen 3 connectivity on the backplane, AM F5x/msd is designed for use in long life-cycle applications within the test, wireless, scientific and semiconductor markets.
AM F5x/msd users are able to specify a choice of processors including the Intel Xeon Processor E3 1505M v5 or Intel Xeon Processor E3-1505L v5, these are both 4-core devices with Intel HD Graphics P530 and optimized for compute performance and low power consumption respectively. Alternatively, those customers with GPU intensive applications, can specify a version of AM F5x/msd fitted with the 4-core Intel Xeon Processor E3-1515M v5 which has Intel Iris Pro Graphics P580 capabilities. The processing capability is complemented with 16GB of soldered down DDR4 ECC DRAM for reliable, high speed memory access speeds and a removable solid state disk module with up to 128GB capacity for the Operating System, application code and data storage. For connection to additional AdvancedMC modules, AM F5x/msd can be used in a x4 or x8 PCIe lane configuration giving a maximum throughput of 7.8GB/s across the fabric interface. External connectivity includes a range of standard I/O interfaces including two 10GBASE-T Ethernet connections for high speed networking.
