Kontron: VM6062 server class blade computer brings secure technology to VME legacy applications

Kontron announced the availability of the VM6062. The new 6U VME SBC features an Intel D1508 processor, which is a member of the Intel Xeon Processor D-1500 family. The high performance - low power - 2Core/4-thread Intel D1508 is soldered on board the product as well as the 8GB extendible to 32GB of DDR4 memory with ECC. This increases the resilience of the product against shock and vibrations. The VM6062 features as standard connectors on the front panel two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, one USB 3.0 port, two serial links and one HDMI digital graphics interface. Equipped with a SSD disk on one of the two available standard M.2 slots, the VM6062 can be used as a Rugged Blade PC.

The Kontron VM6062 is ideal for use in Size Weight-, Power- and Cost-constrained (SWaP-C) systems and general-purpose mission computers, ranging from industrial to extreme rugged transportation and defense applications.

The modular extension with I/O mezzanines of the VM6062 allows to configure tailored systems from open standard components, reducing integration time and cost. It features two PMCs, one VITA 42 XMC or VITA 61 XMC 2.0, one Mini-PCI-Express and two M.2 mezzanine slots. Furthermore, the PCI-Express x4 port available as a build option on the high performance UHM P0 connector allows to expand the mezzanine slots with another carrier card such as the Kontron V2PMC2.

The VM6062 withstands shock and vibration as all components on the board are soldered, which is a prerequisite for reliable operation and a longer product life-time. The VM6062 is scheduled to be available in either air cooling or conduction cooling version with -40 to +85°C temperature range support.

With a guaranteed standard life-time of more than 10 years from product start, the VM6062 facilitates life-cycle management by making the overall system available at least for this period of time.
