The Xeon processor operates at a 2.8GHz base frequency and has been developed for high-performance applications. While previous generations of processor board had a fixed fabric interface, the new AM C8x/msd is available with the choice of a PCI Express or RapidIO fabric interface. This flexibility allows the board to be used in a wider range of user configurations. AM C8x/msd is ideal for wireless applications such as 4G/5G test instruments that need multi-processor high bandwidth solutions.
The new AM C8x/msd processor board features 16 Gbytes soldered DDR4 Error Correcting Code DRAM with single-bit error correction and dual-channel architecture. It also offers front panel connections for easy development and network uplink. The board also features a wide variety of backwards compatible backplane connectivity. Unique to AM C8x/msd, the Gigabit Ethernet backplane connections can be configured for 10 Gigabit operation to significantly improve Ethernet throughput.
Jane Annear, Managing Director of Concurrent Technologies commented: “Our AdvancedMC modules are suitable for a wide range of different applications and markets. This new module is the latest in a series of flexible products and boasts a significant increase in performance compared to our existing offerings. By utilising AM C8x/msd, our customers are able to run more intensive applications with faster responses.”
