The SMART Embedded Computing ATCA-7480 COTS processor blade is based on two Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3 family processors providing up to 28 processing cores per blade. Data paths to main memory and I/O are highly optimized using DDR4 and PCIe Gen 3 protocol to provide high computational performance and optimized packet throughput combined with high bandwidth network connectivity.
The scalable memory capacity of up to 512GB is ideal for deep in-memory databases and look-up/routing tables. This will allow for shorter response times of database accesses, accelerated pattern matching and routing decisions. Cost sensitive applications will benefit from the possibility to use up to sixteen memory DIMMs with lower capacity while still achieving attractive memory capacities.
The ATCA-7480 features a QuadStar™ interface consisting of four 40G Ethernet channels that connect to the shelf's backplane. System integrators have the choice of combining channels to different kinds of redundant and non-redundant topologies depending on the applications bandwidth and availability requirements. By integrating multiple ATCA-7480 blades with up to four 40G hub blades into a single shelf, applications can benefit from high data rates flowing through the available hub blades. In addition external network connectivity can be further increased by a wide range of I/O network options. The networking design is optimized for use with Intel DPDK and is prepared for supporting future releases.
