ENSEMBLE® 5000 Series VXS HCD5220 Module

Product Description

The Ensemble® 5000 Series VXS HCD5220 Dual 8641D Dual-Core Processing Module combines high-performance Power Architecture™ processing technology with balanced I/O from dual PMC/XMC sites and the scalable serial RapidIO® interconnect. Designed to meet the needs of a variety of applications, the HCD5220 can function as a single-board computer or as part of an embedded processing cluster for high-end digital signal processing. 

The HCD5220 is supported by the rich set of features available from the cross-product MultiCore Plus® software infrastructure, which allows for ease of portability while offering an open software development architecture.

*CFM: 20 (at sea level)
Humidity: 10-90% non-condensing
Vibration: 0.003g2/Hz, based on 20-2000 Hz, 1 hr/axis
Shock: z-axis: 20g; x-, y-axes: 32g; 11 ms half-sine;  3-positive and 3-negative on each axis
Rugged options: Consult factory.

*As altitude increases, air density decreases and, therefore, the cooling effect of a particular number of CFM decreases. Different limits can be achieved by trading among temperature, altitude, frequency, and airflow. Consult factory for additional information.
