The MIC-5345MIL is a 40G dual socket ATCA blade based on the Intel® Xeon® E5-2648L v4, ruggedized by Advantech using select components and accompanied by design enhancement for its use in harsh environments. The blade’s field proven commercial design coupled with its rugged features make it ideal for use in ruggedized chassis for Command, Control, Communication, Computing, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) solutions where reliable operation in extremes of operating temperature, shock, vibration and corrosive atmospheres is vital.
The MIC-5345MIL is available fully configured using CPUs with up to 24-cores with long life cycle support, and 8 DDR4 VLP DIMM slots per socket fully tested using commercial and wide temperature range industrial grade ECC memory for up to 512MB per blade.
AVX 2.0 extensions in the processor provide a set of instructions for executing Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) operations to enhance real-time signal and image processing capabilities. AVX accelerates overall compute performance in CPU intensive applications that involve image, audio & video processing and analysis required in a variety of rugged, ground mobile applications.
Extended temperature support allows the MIC-5345MIL to boot up at -30°C for use in low temperature environments while the mechanical design has been improved for the fixation of ruggedized convection cooled heatsinks.
Optional conformal coating can also be applied to act as protection against moisture, dust, and chemicals that could result in damage or failure if non-protected.
The blade supports a Fabric Mezzanine Module type II socket with PCIe x8 connectivity providing extension possibilities for additional front port I/O, offload and acceleration controllers such as the Intel® Communications Chipset 89xx Series, other IPSec offload engines or customer specific logic.
The specification table below provides full details on the blade’s rich front panel and rear I/O features.
The onboard IPMI firmware based on Advantech’s IPMI core offers greater modularity and flexibility for the customization of system management features, and provides the framework for added value features enhancing Reliability, Availability, Serviceability, Usability and Manageability (RASUM) of the product. The MIC-5345MIL can be easily customized based on Advantech’s unique Customized COTS framework with custom FMMs, modifications of the onboard system FPGA, IPMI and/or BIOS firmware.
MIC-5345MIL features two 10/40GbE fabric ports based on XL710-BM2 Ethernet controller with fast PCI Express gen. 3 technology running at up to 8Gbps per lane and best-in-class virtualization support. Two QPI interfaces between the CPUs improve memory and I/O access throughput and latencies.
