New Xeon-Based High Performance Embedded Computer from VersaLogic

Named “Eagle”, this new computer from VersaLogic features Intel’s “Coffee Lake Refresh” Xeon processor. The Eagle also includes high-speed on-board NVMe SSD storage, ECC memory, Ethernet, TPM 2.0 security, GPIO, and USB ports, as well as a SATA port for off-board storage.

The Eagle is based on Intel’s 9th Generation Xeon-E processor which features 6 cores and Hyper-Threading. In addition to the processor it includes soldered down 128 GB NVMe read/write storage and up to 32 GB ECC memory.

“The Eagle is ideal for intensive processing at the edge. This particularly applies when security concerns or limited communication bandwidth preclude sending raw data back to a data center,” said Len Crane, VersaLogic’s President.

Interfaces include Ethernet, USB 3.2, serial, I2C, GPIO, and Mini DisplayPort connections. SATA III connectivity is provided for applications requiring an off-board storage capability.

The Eagle is a compact solution with a 96 x 90 mm footprint. Per the company, its 37 mm height fits in most 1U enclosures. It provides a high performance 6-core Xeon-E processor for space-limited applications. In addition, the Eagle is designed and tested for full industrial temperature (-40° to +85°C) operation and meets MIL-STD-202H specifications for shock and vibration.

Modifications to the off-the-shelf product are available for the Eagle, even in low OEM quantities. Modifications include conformal coating, revision locks, custom labeling, customized testing and screening, etc.

The Eagle will be available in production volumes Q4 of 2021 and is designed for long-term availability (10+ year typical production lifecycle).

See the Eagle, and other compact embedded computing solutions at AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2021 from August 17 to 19 in Atlanta (booth 2224). Also shown will be the recently announced Sabertooth. The Sabertooth is a PCIe/104 embedded computer. It features the same high performance Intel processor and I/O as Eagle with the addition of a x16 PCIe Gen 3 expansion bus.
