Extreme Embedded Switch Fabric Performance

SFM6126 modules switch the control and expansion planes with an efficient PCIe architecture that delivers a performance boost to OpenVPX subsystems. With the versatility of a XMC site for mounting mezzanines, including the EnsembleSeries IOM-400 that distribute wideband I/O transparently and holistically to any other PCIe-connected device – including CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs and storage arrays. This ability to mirror a composable data center architecture is critical for remote deployment of today’s most contemporary AI and other big processing algorithms.

High Performance Embedded Edge Computing (HPEEC) 

SFM6126 are critical scaling components for your truly composable high performance embedded edge computing (HPEEC) solution. When integrated with other EnsembleSeries OpenVPX compute building blocks, including the latest data center Intel Xeon Scalable blades, powerful GPU co-processing engines, the power of the data center is put into your application. These big data processing solutions are tailorable to your platform and can deployed in the harshest and most SWaP constrained environments.

The Anatomy of a Rugged OpenVPX Module

  • Optional MOTS+ packaging for proven extreme environmental protection
  • Next generation liquid and air cooling for reliable, deterministic processing
  • Miniaturization for processing density
  • Unrestricted OpenVPX signal channel for big processing tasks
  • Soldered down processors and components for resilience

Affordable, Interoperable and Upgradable

Place the best technology into the hands of service men and women faster by building your next HPEEC processing solution with EnsembleSeries compute modules that are made with open architectures for interoperability, scalability and re-use. Further drive affordability, performance and lower your program risk by using the architecture that evolves at the speed of technology, follows industry technology roadmaps and leverages data center hardware, software and IP.

Gain a Competitive Edge

Deploy next generation automatous platforms, cognitive EW systems, compute-intensive EO/IR, AI and radar processing, and sensor fusion applications that require data center-class capabilities closer to the source of data origin – at the edge. Efficiently process streaming data over a distributed heterogeneous PCIe-enabled architecture from the cloud to the edge with a seamless and common compute architecture that integrates the latest commercial capabilities for affordability and low program risk.
