Parvus' CPU-111-10 Receives Editor's Choice Award From VME and Critical Systems Magazine

CPU-111-10 Selected for Providing Unparalleled Data Processing Capabilities in a Single-Slot 6U VPX Form Factor Card

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - Jan 31, 2012) - Eurotech subsidiary Parvus Corporation today announced that the Winter issue of VME and Critical Systems magazine selected the CPU-111-10 for its Editor's Choice Award. The CPU-111-10 is a rugged, high-performance 6U VPX (VITA 46) Single Board Computer (SBC) that is offered in both convection cooled and ruggedized conduction cooled variants.

According to VME and Critical Systems, "Server class processing and networking are very difficult to package into a 6U VPX-sized board. The thermal management and power challenges are very difficult at best. Eurotech subsidiary Parvus has overcome the challenge with the CPU-111-10, a rugged, high-performance 6U VPX SBC featuring a quad-core Intel L5408 Xeon processor and integrated 10 GbE switch to support full-mesh backplane data layer interconnectivity for up to eight SBCs integrated into a single chassis."

"Providing unparalleled data processing capabilities in a single-slot 6U VPX form factor card with built-in 10 GbE fabric switching, the CPU-111-10 serves as an ideal open architecture building block for next-generation Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) applications onboard (un)manned air/ground vehicles and shipboard platforms," continues VME and Critical Systems.
