Which standardized platform – if not CompactPCI Serial – would fit better to play out the strengths of the new Intel Xeon D? The new multicore SBC G25A from MEN makes it possible: with up to 16 independent CPU cores, high-performance data transfer lines and built-in hardware virtualization, the CPU board enters the race for its usage in data servers, mobile data centers and for building up virtual machines. Based on the new Intel Xeon D processor, the G25A is MEN’s first CompactPCI Serial SBC which supports two times 10 Gb Ethernet on the front as well as PCIe 3.0 via the backplane. This enables a smooth handling of high data volumes.
The versions of G25A with 4, 8 and 16 cores provide concentrated computing performance and are at the same time the basis for virtualization applications. The required abstraction of software from hardware is achieved by the CPU’s built-in hardware virtualization support, the organization of the 32 GB DDR4 RAM and the scalability of the G25A standard models.
