Project Description

TR A40/30x-RCS 3U VPX Intel® Atom CC


The TR A40/30x-RCx is a low power 3U VPX-REDI processor board supporting the 1.6 GHz Intel® Atom™ processor Z530. It utilizes the Intel® System Controller Hub US15W to support up to 2 Gbytes of DDR2 SDRAM. The TR A40/30x-RCx features an XMC site and a range of I/O interfaces including two SATA300 channels, dual Gigabit Ethernet, USB, CANbus, RS-232/422/485 and HD audio. The board provides a flexible PCI Express® (PCIe) backplane fabric interface that can be configured in several ways from 8 x1 PCIe ports to 2 x4 PCIe ports making it suitable for use in both distributed systems and centralized switching systems as defined in OpenVPX (VITA 65).
