A high-performance 6U VPX single board multiprocessing computer that is suitable for ruggedized systems requiring high-bandwidth processing and low power consumption comes in either air- or conduction-cooled versions. With the Intel Core i7 processor and Intel QM57 chipset, the XCalibur4341 from Extreme Engineering Solutions delivers enhanced performance and efficiency for today's network information processing and embedded computing applications.

The XCalibur4341 provides two separate channels of up to 16 Gbyte (8 Gbyte each) DDR3-1066 ECC SDRAM, two PrPMC / PrXMC slots, 8 Mbytes of NOR flash and up to 128 Gbytes of NAND flash. The XCalibur4341 also supports five Gigabit Ethernet ports, two DVI  ports, audio, I²C, PMC I/O, XMC I/O and RS-232/422/485 serial ports out the front panel and/or backplane connector.

The Core i7 processor running at 2.53, 2.0 or 1.05 GHz is combined with dual-core Hyper-Threading Technology that will let each core of the processor work on two tasks simultaneously, and Turbo Boost Technology that can adjust the processor speed for both faster performance as well as for energy efficiency when speed is not needed. An integrated high-definition 3D graphics processor supports HDMI video on the front panel as well as dual DVI-D displays.

The VPX connector supports VITA 46.4 (four x4 Gen2 PCIe lanes to P1), VITA 46.7 (four 1000Base-BX Ethernet Ports to P4) and VITA 46.9 (PMC and XMC I/O to P3, P4, P5, P6, mapping P3w1P4-P64s+X12d+X8d). Estimated power requirement at 2.53 GHz is 40W. Operating system support for VxWorks, Windows, QNX and Linux are available.
