"The 3 rd generation Intel ® Xeon ® processor E5-2600 V2 product family is designed to bring server class computing to the edge of the network," explained Frank Schapfel, Director of marketing for Intel's Communications Infrastructure Division. "Mercury's ability to provide a robust, industry standard platform for the most intensively rugged environments delivers even more computing capability in military and aerospace applications."
Native Intel Quick Path Interconnect (QPI) v1.1 inter-processor interconnects enable virtual cache coherent processor cores delivering true deterministic processing. SMP underscores the open, yet highly configurable nature of this module to support the widest array of existing software (including Linux
), tools and libraries. Intel
Advanced Vector Extension (AVX) implementation enhances floating-point and intensely complex algorithm processing ability. On-board Gen 3 PCIe
pipes feed the data plane with either 40Gb/s Ethernet (TCP/IP and Sockets) or DDR/QDR/FDR10 InfiniBand (OpenMPI and OFED) via two Mellanox ConnectX-3 bridges. Adding to the module's drive-to-performance is Mercury's cooling domain expertise, including industry-leading Air Flow-By
, which more efficiently cools the HDS6602, enabling full-throttle processing. Air Flow-By delivers the most efficient cooling available while providing environmental isolation for the module from moisture, liquids and dust.
As with all Mercury modules, the HDS6602 can be quickly and seamlessly integrated with other building blocks by Mercury's Services and Systems Integration (SSI) group to create affordable sensor processing subsystems that fulfill complex application-specific requirements and effective subsystem upgrades.
The HDS6602 module will be available in the fourth quarter of 2013 in air-cooled, Air Flow-By
, conduction-cooled and VPX-REDI (VITA 48) configurations with either InfiniBand or Ethernet data plane fabric support.
