Product Announcement

Latest VPX product designed for the rugged server markets

Concurrent Technologies Plc (AIM: CNC), a world leading specialist in the design and manufacture of high-end, embedded computer boards for critical applications, is pleased to announce a further addition to its increasing range of VPX™ boards, the TR G4x/msd.


This high performance processor board is based on the Intel® Xeon® Processor combined with up to 64GB of memory, doubling the previous maximum capacity of memory on boards within this product family.  This key benefit, and the enhanced storage options provided on this product, will particularly appeal to designers of systems within the embedded rugged server defence markets.  These markets require the highest performance products available but are constrained by maximum size, weight and power limits due to the nature of the harsh, often mobile or remote, environments in which they are deployed.


This board, as with all Concurrent Technologies products, is a long life-cycle product available in both commercial and, later this year, rugged variants.


Glen Fawcett, CEO, Concurrent Technologies, commented:

“Battlefield communication and surveillance systems require the performance of large servers but contained in smaller, portable, and more rugged chassis.  This latest product is an ideal candidate for such applications and will combine very well with our complementary switches and I/O products, to meet the demanding needs of this defence market sector.  With major defence budgets predicted to rise, requirements for such applications can be expected to increase.”
