The new VX6090 has been announced by Kontron, as a 6U VPX Dual 8-core Intel Xeon D processor blade computer, which has been successfully integrated and tested by Thales in a radar application.
"We are very proud to have been selected by a worldwide leader of radar systems for the delivery of high performance blade computers", said Alain Spors, Director of Sales, Kontron. "The VX6090 has met the performance and the level of quality in volume production required by our customer."
Kontron VX6090 combines dense processing with rich standards-based 10Gigabit Ethernet communication fabrics and I/O connectivity to form a powerful and flexible platform for SWaP-constrained missions. It is equally suitable for streaming radar signal processing, image-processing and embedded server-type applications.
Adding advanced security, the Kontron's VX6090 integrates two secure elements, Kontron APPROTECT and Trusted Platform Module, which offer security protection through trusted boot, authentication by TPM and secure boot solutions.
"The qualification of the VX6090 in our new radar program confirms that Kontron meets the high level of quality that we expect, for both the products and the long-term services", said Arnaud Defaut, Head of COTS Purchasing at Thales.
