Rugged mezzanine module with 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports

Extreme Engineering Solutions has introduced the Xpedite7650, which is the company’s first enhanced COM Express Basic (Type 7) mezzanine module, based on the Intel Xeon D-1500 family of processors (formerly Broadwell-DE) and featuring dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports.

The new Type 7 standard deviates from the established Type 6 pinout, which focuses on audio and visual capabilities, by eliminating graphics support to allow for the inclusion of 10 Gigabit Ethernet, an NC-SI interface, and an additional eight (total of 32) PCI Express lanes.

It accommodates up to 32GB of DDR4-2133 ECC SDRAM in two channels to support memory-intensive applications.

It is a suitable solution for the high-bandwidth and processing-intensive requirements of today’s commercial, industrial, and military applications. The small footprint and standards-based form factor make the XPedite7650 suitable for portable and rugged environments, while providing an upgrade path for the future.

The module also hosts numerous I/O ports and interfaces, including 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, PCI Express, SATA, USB 3.0, LPC, SMB, I²C, and LVTTL serial.

Wind River VxWorks and X-ES Enterprise Linux Support Packages (XEL) are available.
