ENSEMBLE® 8000 Series HDS8613 High Density Server AdvancedTCA Xeon-EP

Product Description

HDS8613 Processing Blade 

Most powerful single slot Intel server-class processing power for advanced radar, IMINT, and other compute-intense applications  

The Ensemble® HDS8613 high density server (HDS) is a next-generation secure AdvancedTCA™ blade with dual 12-core processors. The blade is equipped with native Advanced Vector Extensions 2 (AVX2) and full Intel Quick Path Interconnect (QPI) with the support of up to 128GB DDR4-2133 SDRAM to deliver a combined 1.38 TFLOPS of general-purpose processing power. The blade supports multiple system integrity solutions and is equipped with an AMC mezzanine site for the broadest system integration versatility available.

The Ensemble® HDS8613 has ruggedization and cooling enhancements inherited from its OpenVPX pedigree. Mercury’s secure ATCA Ensemble® portfolio leverages best commercial technology from the industrial base to support the U.S. Department of Defense's Better Buying Power requirements for open system architectures, affordability and exportability.
