New NXP LX2160A-based 3U VPX SBC

New NXP LX2160A-based 3U VPX SBC


Quimper, France, May 29 2020 ---- Interface Concept, a leading designer and manufacturer of embedded high-performance boards announced today the new high-performance 3U VPX Single Board Computer offering the latest technological innovations with the NXP Arm® Cortex®-A72- based LX2160A Multicore Communications Processor. Interface Concept is the first company to offer a new 3U VPX SBC based on this new processor technology.

The LX2160A, being the highest performance member of the NXP Layerscape processor family, combines the low power of FinFET (Fin Field Effect Transistor) process technology, sixteen Arm® Cortex®-A72 cores up to 2.2GHz with data path acceleration for L2/3 packet processing, security offload, traffic management and supports up to 100 Gbit/s Ethernet.

This new board design meets systems integrators needs, who were looking for 25 Gbit/s Ethernet interfaces on a 3U VPX system backplane currently specified by the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA™) working group. Today, the NXP Arm® LX2160A processor is the only one on the market to support up to 100 Gbit/s Ethernet routed on the backplane, which significantly improve high-bandwidth required in 3U VPX systems' high-processing applications.

The IC-ARM-VPX3a, developed in alignment with the SOSA™ technical standard, features 32GB of DDR4 memory, local storage options (eMMC and M.2 slot), PCIe Gen 3.0, SATA3, USB, UART and multiple 10/40 Gigabit and 25/100 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces available on the backplane.

“Interface Concept is proud to be the first company on the market to release a 3U VPX Single Board Computer based on this NXP Layerscape LX2160A processor supporting 100 Gigabit Ethernet on the backplane. It will fulfill the growing demand of higher backplane bandwidth in small form-factors systems” said Franck Lefèvre, Sales Manager at Interface Concept.

This board complies with VITA 65.0 standard. It comes with a boot loader and with a Linux or VxWorks BSP. It is available in air-cooled and conduction-cooled versions.

Interface Concept is now taking orders for the IC-ARM-VPX3a which will ship this summer.
