About X-ES
Founded in 2002, Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) is headquartered in the Madison, Wisconsin area. Extreme Engineering Solutions is a leader in the design, manufacture, testing, and support of high-quality, cost-effective, hardware and software solutions for the embedded computing market. Our product portfolio contains an array of solutions, including high-performance single board computers (SBCs), processor mezzanine modules, ruggedized extended temperature systems, networking I/O modules, embedded routers, Ethernet switches, Solid-State Storage drives, and development chassis. X-ES’ commitment to high-quality products is reinforced by their top-tier customer service and support.  

What is Intel Xeon D and What Are The Benefits?

The Xeon D is an x86 processor designed and manufactured by Intel. When compared to Intel’s i7 chips, one of the benefits to using a Xeon CPU is that they have more in-built technology that customers can utilise in their application. For example, only Xeon processors support ECC RAM (error-correcting code memory), which means they are more stable and less prone to data corruption and system crashes.

Intel Xeon D for Rugged Applications

The Xeon D was originally designed to compete with ARM architecture-based server solutions, but in response to feedback from the military and aerospace industries regarding demanding, rugged environmental factors, as well as reliability and security concerns, Intel® now offers native extended temperature support for Intel® Xeon® D processors. The extended supply life and 10-year reliability guarantee help lowers costs and development cycles by allowing you to adopt commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) processors without the requirement for mid-life upgrades and hardware replacement.

Intel Xeon D Embedded Single Board Computers

We work closely with Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) whose embedded single board computers with Intel® Xeon® D processors are designed and built to address the unique environmental and security challenges typical of military and aerospace applications. Their experienced engineering team ruggedises standard Intel® Xeon® D processors with Class III PCB assemblies, underfill and conformal coating, and their innovative hybrid heat frame design optimises size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C).

When integrated on the X-ES VPX x86 single board computer family, these high-performance, low-power processors are optimised for a variety of applications and infrastructure, including radar/lidar and multispectral sensor integration, image/signal processing and electronic warfare.

Pairing X-ES embedded single board computer technology with the powerful computing performance of high core-count Intel® Xeon® D processors allows for expanded networking capabilities, accelerated computing, and unparalleled processing with Xeon®-class reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS).
