PICMG 1.3 PEAK 886VL2 Gives Performance A Quantum Leap with 3rd Gen Intel® Core™ Processors

NEXCOM PEAK 886VL2 PICMG 1.3 full-size single board computer, based on the 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor family paired with the Intel® Q77 Express chipset, gives system performance a quantum leap. The PEAK 886VL2, based on 22nm 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor integrated with the Intel® HD Graphics 4000, shows a huge increase in performance per watt, imaging processing capabilities, I/O bandwidth and data security. With high scalability and flexible expansion, the PEAK 886VL2 meets different levels of performance demand for applications such as factory automation, AOI, medical imaging and video surveillance.

The PEAK 886VL2 supports a wide selection of LGA 1156 socket type processors, ranging from the quad-core 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7-3770 processor to the dual-core Intel® Pentium® G2120 processor. With Integrated Intel® HD Graphics 4000 and up to 16GB dual channel DDR3 1333/1600 SDRAM, the PEAK 886VL2 supports DirectX 11, OpenGL 3.1 and OpenCL 1.1 and increases 3D imaging processing by 2.9 times, as compared to previous generation processors. Based on the Intel® 22nm technologies, the PEAK 886VL2 also uplifts the overall performance by 19 percent while keeping TDP within 77W.

The PEAK 886VL2 is equipped with the latest PCIe 3.0, which doubles the interconnect speed to 8Gbps. Working in conjunction with NEXCOM PICMG 1.3 backplane NBP 14536, the PEAK 886VL2 supports up to PCIe x16, four PCIe x1 and four PCI. To facilitate the migration from ISA to PCIe, four ISA outputs are also supported by the backplane with built-in PCI/ISA bridge ITE8888.

The PICMG 1.3 full-size SBC PEAK 886VL2 has four 5Gbps USB 3.0 ports, which runs ten times faster than the four adjoining USB 2.0. Among its four COM ports, the COM 2 supports not only the RS RS232/422/485 interfaces, but also 5V/12V power supply to external devices through RI pin. In addition, one VGA, one DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort, and two GbE LAN ports can also be found on the PEAK 886VL2.

As for data-critical machine tools, the PEAK 886VL2 adopts considerable measures to ensure fast data access, data reliability and data security. The PEAK 886VL2 has four state-of-the-art 6Gb/s SATA 3.0 and two 3Gb/s SATA 2.0 ports; it supports RAID 0/1/5/10, enabling response acceleration and data recovery. It also offers TPM function as an option to carefully guard data security with cryptographic functions, RSA key, just to name a few.

Following NEXCOM’s newly introduced operating temperature standard for embedded boards, the PEAK 886VL2 can perform its full functions at temperatures as low as -15°C. Putting the PEAK 886VL2 to good use, system designers can build assorted machines tools, including CNC machine, milling machines, lathe, and much more for use in severe environments.
