October 16, 2012 - Featuring 3U form factor, suitable for use with any CPU, Xembedded XVPX-9756 supports dual SATA drives or single 2.5 in. drive, rotating or solid-state. Module connects directly to CPU via SATA signals or by PCI Express signals through on-board controller. Unit offers option to use RAID 0 striping for high data throughput, or RAID 1 mirroring so that data written on one disk drive is simultaneously written to other disk drive. Depending on thermal options, operating range is 0–70C or -40 to 85C.

Acromag's new Xembedded XVPX-9756 storage solution supports both standard and customized backplanes with the ability to boot over SATA/SAS or PCIe signals.

WIXOM, Mich., -- The new Xembedded XVPX-9756 is a SATA/SAS bootable storage module, in a 3U form factor, suitable for use with any CPU. It supports dual slim SATA drives or a single 2.5" drive, either rotating or solid-state. The module connects directly to the CPU via SATA signals or by means of PCI Express signals through an on-board controller. Given its connectivity options, the XVPX-9756 is an unequaled bootable storage solution. The operating range is 0 to 70 degrees C or -40 to 85 degrees C, dependent upon thermal options. List price is $1,345.00 for air-cooled, $2,025.00 for conduction-cooled, and $2,590.00 for REDI covers.

Based on a previous Xembedded design, the XVPX-9756 brings a broader spectrum of options to the table. The original product, not bootable over PCIe, was intended for use with their RAID controller module as a customized solution. However, the XVPX-9756 is a more versatile option. This module permits booting on SATA/SAS or PCIe signals, suiting either customized or standard backplanes, which allows all CPU boards to benefit.

By employing dual slim SATA drives on the XVPX-9756, users can take advantage of a simple single-card RAID system. This drive module is RAID 0/1 configurable with the option to use RAID 0 striping for high data throughput, or RAID 1 mirroring so that data written on one disk drive is also simultaneously written to the other disk drive.

"The XVPX-9756 storage module eliminates the inefficient sandwich of multiple drive cards with multiple CPU modules," explained Dave Rymanowicz, senior design engineer for Acromag's Xembedded Group. Using dual slim SATA drives, over the SATA/SAS signals, supports one or two CPU boards with just one XVPX-9756 mass storage card and reduces the clutter in your card cage.

The XVME-9756 SATA/SAS bootable storage module is part of Acromag's line of Xembedded computing solutions. With Xembedded computer boards, users leverage the experience gained from providing embedded computing solutions for more than three decades, including the original Intel-based VME processor module. Xembedded processor and data storage modules deliver dependable, high-performance technologies to maximize efficiency and minimize risk in critical computing applications.
