Ensemble 6000 Series OpenVPX Intel 4th Generation Core i7 Quad-Core High Density Server Data/Graphics HDS6502 Processing Module

OpenVPXTM systems operating Serial RapidIO® or 10Gigabit Ethernet data plane architectures can process data and graphic information faster than ever with the HDS6502 (High Density Server) module. HDS6502 is a potent integration of Mercury packaging/cooling technology, implementation of Mercury firmware and the latest Intel processors. Collectively, this leverage of Mercury and Intel solutions produces a singularly robust and powerful commercial processing engine.

Mercury’s POET (Protocol Offload Engine Technology) firmware implemented data plane bridge, dual 2.4GHz 4th Generation Quad-core Intel i7-4700EQ processors with native AVX2 (Advanced Vector Extensions 2.0), on-die GT2 GPUs, and Gen 3 PCIe interfaces is supported with 16GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM of system memory to produce a unique combination of processing power, speed and future upgradability. POET itself underscores a unique feature of this I/O intense module, its ability to upgrade the fabric protocol without any hardware changes. This data/graphics processing engine is an excellent upgrade option for existing subsystems and a versatile building block for novel high-performance subsystems.
