6U CompactPCI Blade with Eight-Core 32nm Intel® Xeon® Processor E5: cPCI-6930

The cPCI-6930 is a 6U CompactPCI® single board computer in dual-slot (8HP) width form factor featuring a single 32nm Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2400 Series with 8/6/4-cores in LGA1356 socket mated with the Intel® C604 Series Platform Controller Hub. The cPCI-6930 supports three channels of DDR3-1333/1600 ECC registered SDRAM in three RDIMMs channel up to total 48GB capacity. Graphics is provided by a Silicon Motion SM750 2D GPU supporting up to 1920×1440 resolution. Four front panel 10/100/1000BASE-T ports are provided by the Intel® 82580EB Gigabit Ethernet controller.

The 8HP cPCI-6930 provides four GbE ports, one VGA port, three USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, one DB-9 RS-232 serial port and one 32/64-bit 133MHz PMC or PCI-Express x8 XMC site on the front panel. Onboard storage capabilities include 4GB of soldered SATA NAND flash, SATA 6 Gb/s direct connector for an onboard 2.5″ drive or CFast adapter. A CompactFlash adapter is available, and onboard 2.5″ SAS drive can be supported by BOM option.

A selection of optional Rear Transition Modules (RTM) provides additional I/O functionality including two GbE ports for PICMG 2.16 support, USB 2.0 ports, PS/2 keyboard/mouse port, serial ports, High Definition Audio, SATA ports, additional VGA/ DVI interfaces (dependent on selected RTM), and optional CF or SD socket. Up to eight SAS ports supporting hardware RAID via two mini-SAS x4 connectors are available when mated with the cPCI-R6200 RTM, and signals for two SAS ports are available on J5 by BOM option.

For dense computing requirements, the cPCI-6930 supports operation in both a system slot and in a peripheral slot as a standalone blade. The cPCI-6930 is compliant with the PICMG 2.9 specification and supports system management functions based on the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) as well as hardware monitoring of physical characteristics such as CPU and system temperature, DC voltages and power status.
