CompactPCI® PlusIO CPU Card • Intel® XEON® E3 v6 Processor

The PC7-FESTIVAL is a rich featured high performance 4HP/3U CompactPCI® PlusIO CPU board, equipped with an Intel® Xeon® E3 familiy mobile workstation processor for demanding applications. For scalability, the PC7-FESTIVAL is also available with an Intel® Core™ processor.
The PC7-FESTIVAL front panel is provided with two RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet jacks, two USB 3.0 Type-A receptacles, and two DisplayPort™ connectors. In addition, a third USB Type-C front panel receptacle i available as an option, usable alternatively as (third) DisplayPort.

The powerful Xeon® E3-1500 v6 series processor is accompanied by the CM238 mobile PCH, for a maximum of high speed I/O resources (e.g. PCI Express®, SATA, USB). On-board mass-storage solutions are based on low profile mezzanine expansion cards, which can accommodate up to two M.2 style SSD modules (PCIe® Gen3 x4 and/or SATA 6G). Side cards for an 8HP assembly are also available, providing front I/O and M.2 SSDs.
The PC7-FESTIVAL is equipped with up to 32GB DDR4 RAM with ECC support. Up to 16GB memory-down are provided for rugged applications, and another 16GB are available via the DDR4 ECC SO-DIMM socket.

The backplane connector J1 allows for up to seven CompactPCI® Classic peripheral cards in a system. The J2 connector complies with the CompactPCI® PlusIO standard for high speed rear I/O (fourfold PCIe®, SATA and USB2), or a hybrid CompactPCI® Serial backplane.
