Acromag’s New 3U OpenVPX™ Single Board Computer Features a 6th Generation Skylake Intel® Xeon® CPU

The new AcroExpress™ SBC provides extensive I/O support plus a fully integrated heatsink for advanced cooling management.

Wixom, MI: Acromag, Inc., the leader in industrial I/O, announced today the release of the AcroExpressTM VPX6600 3U OpenVPX single board computer. The VPX6600 series utilizes the 6th Generation Skylake Intel® Xeon® processor and C230 PCH chipset for extensive I/O support. Expanded memory performance comes with up to 32GB of DDR4 ECC SODIMMs that are firmly attached to the board and are removable for security or upgrades. This SBC is designed for commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) applications and manufactured to meet VITA 46.0 with a minimum 7-year life expectancy. A conduction-cooled version is also offered and boards start at less than $6,300.


A superior array of backplane I/O options includes PCIe x4 data and expansion planes, optional SATA III expansion plane, Ethernet ports, RS-232/422/485 ports, USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, DisplayPort 1.2 ports, SATA III ports, and audio. The Data Plane and Expansion Plane interfaces can be used to interconnect multiple VPX6600's or to provide PMC/XMC support.

Acromag offers C libraries for VxWorks® and other operating systems. These libraries provide generic routines (source code included) to handle reads, writes, interrupts, and other functions. "Demonstration programs enable the developer to quickly exercise the I/O modules before attaching the routines to the application program, stated Russell Nieves, Acromag's Director of Embedded sales. This diagnostic tool can save hours of troubleshooting and debugging."

The COTS product line of AcroExpress processor boards are RoHS compliant and ideal military applications that requires extensive specialized I/O support with advanced cooling management.
