Adlink Builds Dual Xeon Blade

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- ADLINK Technology, Inc., a leading provider of trusted telecom computing products, today announced availability of the aTCA-6150, an AdvancedTCA® (ATCA) processor blade featuring dual next-generation 32 nm six-core Intel® Xeon® processor L5638 with 2.00 GHz core-speed, the Intel® 5520 chipset, up to 48 GB of DDR3 memory, and an optional PICMG® Mid-size AMC bay for increased computing performance and flexibility. ADLINK debuts the aTCA-6150 as a six-core performance and power consumption enhancement to its ATCA product line. The Intel® Xeon® processor L5638 on 32 nm process technology with 6-core / 12-thread capability gives the aTCA-6150 increased processing performance with more efficient power consumption. This latest ATCA offering from ADLINK is ideal for applications requiring high performance and high-speed data transfer which were formerly thermally constrained.

On-card connectivity includes dual GbE or 10GbE Fabric Interfaces, dual GbE Base Interfaces, dual front panel GbE interfaces, and quad SAS channels which provide leading edge network performance and storage capabilities. High speed data-transfer on the PICMG 3.1 fabric interface is provided by an Intel® 82599EB 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller with PCI-Express® v2.0, and base interface connectivity is delivered through the Intel® 82576EB Gigabit Ethernet controller, also supporting PCI-Express 2.0. The aTCA-6150 is ideal for carrier-grade applications such as media servers in IPTV, IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) broadband networks, and wireless infrastructures, providing telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) and network equipment providers (NEPs) with a powerful, cost-effective solution for mission critical applications and a smooth path for scalability and expansion.

The aTCA-6150 implements two Intel® Xeon® processor L5638 (6-core) or two Intel® Xeon® processor L5618 (4-core) with integrated memory controllers supporting six sockets for DDR3-1066 VLP RDIMM memory up to a maximum of 48 GB. Also supporting Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology and Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, the Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series increases the performance of both multi-threaded and single-threaded workloads, as well as improving energy efficiency. The Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series features Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (TXT) for safer computing and hardware/firmware security with a higher level of trust and control over computer systems. Also featured are the Intel® AES New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) that accelerate data encryption and decryption. These advanced practical security features are especially suited to datacom and telecom applications.
