The Parvus DuraCOR XD1500 is a rugged Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS), small form factor (SFF), modular mission computer server based on the industrial-temp, 12-core, 64-bit Intel Xeon D-1559 (formerly Broadwell-DE) SoC processor. With support for up to 128 GB of DDR-4 RAM memory and integrated 10GBase-T Ethernet, it has been optimally designed for size, weight, and power (SWaP)-sensitive airborne, ground vehicle, UAS, ISR and sensor platforms seeking datacenter-class performance at the network edge.
It combines powerful high core-count, floating-point processing with the highest capacity memory architecture available in a rugged embedded system, with incredible I/O and data storage scalability.
Supporting an add-on rugged COTS XMC co-processor or I/O module (i.e. GPU, FPGA, SBC, 10G Ethernet) and multiple Mini-PCIe I/O modules (i.e. MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, CANbus, 1G Ethernet) for mission-specific avionics/vetronics payload interfaces, the system can be configured with mission-tailored capabilities for C4ISR command and control, image processing, surveillance, virtual machine hypervisor, datacenter server processing, and network functional virtualisation (NFV) applications in harsh deployed environments. Multiple, ultra-fast Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe)-based and SATA3-based solid state disk (SSD) Flash disk options are available for support of high-capacity (multi-Terabyte) removable and/or fixed Flash disk storage, information assurance and operational requirements for encryption, zeorisation, and/or high mating cycle SATA interfaces (rated for up to 100,000 insertions).
