MEN: high performance - 16 cores on 6U VMEbus with Intel Xeon D

The new multicore SBC A25 from MEN offers up to 16 independent CPU cores, a variety of I/O options and an FPGA-based VMEbus interface. The board is already used by the Swiss research institute CERN in the world's largest particle accelerator due to its extreme computing power. The A25 is a powerful multicore VMEbus board, based on Intel's Xeon D-1500 server CPU. The board is available in versions with 4, 8 and 16 cores and thus provides a concentrated computing power. The 32 GB DDR4 memory and the scalability of the offered standard models make the board a reliable partner. The VMEbus interface is implemented as an FPGA-based open-source solution. This makes them future-proof and cost-effective with extensive functionality.

The interfaces are also extremely versatile. With two USB, three Gigabit Ethernet and two RS232 ports at the front, the board provides the essentials for application in the industrial sector. In addition, the A25 can be equipped with an XMC/PMC mezzanine card and a PCI Express Mini Card, providing additional front I/O for functions such as graphics, mass storage, or further Ethernet. This modularity allows the configuration of customized systems from open standard components, thus reducing integration time and costs.

The A25 supports the application in the temperature range from -40 to + 60°C. In addition, all components were prepared for coating and soldered – the requirement for reliable operation and a long product life. In addition, Intel guarantees a long-term availability of the CPU of 7 years. The VMEbus card is particularly suitable for critical embedded applications in the field of industrial automation, or in the energy segment. Due to its high-performance computing power, the A25 is already used by the Swiss research institute CERN in the world's largest particle accelerator.
