New Kontron VM6062 Server Class Blade Computer brings Performance and Secure Technology to VME legacy Applications

New VM6062 extends Kontron’s 6U VME portfolio of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) single board computers (SBCs) with a fully featured I/O Blade Server PC - Technology insertion of modern cutting edge high-performance computing architecture - Up-to-date security solutions into existing VME-based applications

Augsburg, Germany / Toulon, France, 12.06.2018 – In line with its strategy of ensuring customers to upgrade their existing application with the latest technology and security solutions, Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), today announced the availability of the VM6062. The new 6U VME SBC features an Intel® D1508 processor, which is a member of the Intel® Xeon® Processor D-1500 family.

High performance - low power 2-core/4-thread D-1508 Server Class Rugged Blade PC
The processor of the VM6062 is the high performance – low power – 2 Core/4-thread Intel® D1508 member of the Intel® Xeon® Processor D-1500 family. It is soldered on board the product as well as the 8GB extendible to 32GB of DDR4 memory with ECC. This increases the resilience of the product against shock and vibrations. The VM6062 features as standard connectors on the front panel two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, one USB 3.0 port, two serial links and one HDMI digital graphics interface. Equipped with a SSD disk on one of the two available standard M.2 slots, the VM6062 can be used as a Rugged Blade PC.

VM6062 targets primarily SWaP-C systems: The Kontron VM6062 is ideal for use in Size Weight-, Power- and Cost-constrained (SWaP-C) systems and general-purpose mission computers, ranging from industrial to extreme rugged transportation and defense applications.

"The new VM6062 confirms our commitment to support our customers' applications over the long-term," said Alain Spors, Director of Sales at Kontron. "Targeted for applications supplying 50W or less, and with a 5 Volt only power input build version, the VM6062 is designed to be compatible with all legacy VME64 systems."

Versatile platform by addition of I/O via standard mezzanines
The modular extension with I/O mezzanines of the VM6062 allows to configure tailored systems from open standard components, reducing integration time and cost. It features two PMCs, one VITA 42 XMC or VITA 61 XMC 2.0, one Mini-PCI-Express and two M.2 mezzanine slots. Furthermore, the PCI-Express x4 port available as a build option on the high performance UHM P0 connector allows to expand the mezzanine slots with another carrier card such as the Kontron V2PMC2.

Kontron SEC-Line computer security to protect customers applications
Kontron answers digital security requirements with hardware enforced root of trust with dual secure elements and software only techniques such as Secure Boot.

Designed for harsh environments and an over a decade availability
The VM6062 withstands shock and vibration as all components on the board are soldered, which is a prerequisite for reliable operation and a longer product life-time. The VM6062 is scheduled to be available in either air cooling or conduction cooling version with -40°C to +85°C temperature range support.

With a guaranteed standard life-time of more than 10 years from product start, the VM6062 facilitates life-cycle management by making the overall system available at least for this period of time.
