6U VPX Processor, Layerscape LX2160A with PCIe/40G/10G/1G

Vadatech announces VPX706

Henderson, NV – April 25, 2024 – VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, announces the VPX706. The VPX706 is a Layerscape Processor in 6U form factor based on the NXP LX2160A (16-core) processor. The module provides PCIe Gen3 x8 or Dual PCIe Gen3 x4 on P1 connector ports 0-7. Also, on the P1 connector the module has eight reconfigurable SERDES that are routed to ports 8-15. Below are some examples of the available SERDES configurations:

  • Dual PCIe Gen3 x4
  • 4x GbE with PCIe Gen3 x4
  • 4x 10GBASE-KR with PCIe Gen3 x4
  • 8x GbE - PCIe Gen3 x4 with 4x 10GBASE-KR
  • 4x 10GBASE-KR with 4x GbE
  • 8x 10GBASE-KR
  • PCIe Gen3 x4 with PCIe Gen3 x2 with 2x GbE
  • 2x 40GBASE-KR4

The module includes 32 GB of DDR4 memory with ECC, SDHC Socket, 64 MB SPI flash, 512 KB I2C flash, 8 GB of eMMC, and 1TB NVMe storage.  Additionally, the VPX706 can host two XMC modules which interfaces to the host processor via PCIe Gen3 x4. The XMC I/Os are routed to the backplane per VITA 46.9 as P3w1-P64s+P4w1- X12d+X8d and P5w1-P64s+P6w1-X12d+X8d. The module also routes RS-232 from management, dual RS-232, dual RS-422 from host, a USB 3.0/2.0 and 1000Base-T to the front panel and P2 connector. The RS485/RS422 termination and slew rates are software configurable. The CPU has Secure Boot capabilities from power-on and hard reset.
