Product Announcement
Rugged VPX Server Boards

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 range of rugged VPX boards that have now completed thermal, shock and vibration qualification testing.

The VPX range is based on the Intel® Xeon® processor family and variants can be customised with a range of memory and security enhancements without compromising the minimal size, weight and power (SWaP) characteristics of the boards.

This combination of processing power, small SWaP footprint, robust security and capability to operate in extreme environments is ideal for the defence sector where this class leading technology is expected to be integrated into both battlefield and support applications.

Glen Fawcett, CEO, Concurrent Technologies Plc, commented: “Our focus was to design these boards to optimise server performance for extreme environments and to minimize our SWaP characteristics. Having completed the necessary qualifications, we are now selling class leading, single slot server products that are capable of operating at full processor loading irrespective of the card edge temperature.”
