Designed to meet the requirements of customers who require quad-core performance for their demanding applications, the Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® Processor offer breakthrough performance, energy efficiency, and extended lifecycle support. Themis’ new Intel Quad Core processor-based boards are ideal for compute-intensive embedded, storage and communications applications as well as a wide range of commercial and military applications.
The XV2 is based on the low power, Quad-Core Xeon L5518 processor clocked at 1.73 GHz, and Intel’s 3420 chipset used in high performance Xeon servers. The L5518 memory controller supports ECC to maintain the highest system integrity, and provides the bandwidth necessary to support high performance I/O. XV2 memory is expandable to twenty four Gigabytes of DDR III memory.
“The Themis XV2 utilizes Intel’s Quad-Core technology, and brings server class performance to the power sensitive segment of the x86 VMEbus market,” said William Kehret, president of Themis Computer. “This second generation Quad Core Xeon computer differentiates itself from other market entries, with up to twenty four GB of ECC memory, and a wide variety of I/O and storage configurations.”
The XV2 base configuration includes; three gigabytes of DDR III memory, four Gigabit Ethernet ports, five SATA II ports, four SAS ports, eight USB 2.0 ports and two XMC/PMC slots. An onboard ATI ES1000 video controller is provided with either front or rear panel VGA display access. Storage – is provided through the use of an onboard CompactFlash or with an optional on-board 2.5 inch SATA drive. The computer includes dual-Gigabit Ethernet to support the modern highly networked environments. Configuration options for the XV1 include:
• Intel LC5518 Quad Core Xeon processor running at 1.73 GHz or higher (2.133GHz maximum turbo frequency)
• Intel 3420 Chipset
• Three GB DDR III memory standard, up to 24 GB DDRIII ECC memory maximum
• Plug-in Compact flash type II
• Four (4) Gigabit Ethernet ports standard
• Optional 2.5 inch SATA drive
• Expansion to a XMC/PMC carrier card
• VME bridge: Tundra Tsi148
• Graphics chip type – ATI ES1000
• Linux®, and Windows® OS support
o Temperature Range -5 to +55°C operating -40 to 95°C non-operating
o Humidity 0 to 95% (non-condensing)
o Shock 30G [.] 40mS operating, 30G [.] 40mS non-operating
o Vibration (10-2000Hz) 0.90G (rms) operating, 2.97G (rms) non-operating.
These configuration options enable the XV2 to bring Quad Core server performance to a 6U VME form factor.
