Dell EMC Intros PowerEdge XR2 Rugged Server

Dell EMC presents the next generation of rugged PowerEdge XR servers-- the PowerEdge XR2, designed for use in harsh environments, including industrial sites or even conflict zones.

The 1U chassis housing the XR2 features shock and vibration resistance, optional dust filtration and components certified to work in temperatures ranging from -5ºC to +55ºC as well as altitudes of up to 15K feet. Inside are two Xeon Gold (Skylake-SP) processors with up to 22 cores, 30MB L3 cache and a 140W TDP.

Customers can equip the primary CPU socket with 10 DIMMs (4 channels at 2 DPC and 2 channels at 1 DPC) and the secondary CPU socket with 6 DDR4 memory modules (6 channels at 1 DPC) for a potential 512GB of DRAM per box. Such an amount might appear low compared to current servers, but Dell only uses DIMMs certified for severe environments which are currently limited to 32GB per module.

Sckipio Claims 4Gbps Over Twisted Pair Record

Sckipio breaks a performance record at the Broadband World Forum-- a demo featuring 3.21Gbps of download and 900Mbps of upload on production silicon using Gfast bonding running at 212MHz.

Developed in partnership with software vendor Civica, the demo was done over two bonded pairs of CAT-3 wiring (aka regular copper telephone wires). Also used are the Sckipio SCK23000 chipset, Civica WanStaX software and the Microsemi WinPat network processor. The result, as the company puts it, is an Amendment 3 Gfast solution able to exceed the performance targets of the near future.

“Sckipio is pushing Gfast to astonishing speeds with production silicon,” CEO David Baum adds. “No other Gfast solution delivers end-to-end 212a profile bonding.”

DVIGear Intros 4K HyperLight DisplayPort Cables

DVIGear launches the HyperLight Series-- a range of active optical cables (AOC) able to extend DisplayPort 1.4 signals with aggregate data rates up to 32.4Gbps.

The cables are HDCP 1.4/2.2 compliant, and support resolutions up to 8K/30Hz (4:4:4) for cable lengths up to 50m, and 4K/60Hz (4:4:4) for lengths reaching up to 100m. Construction features a hybrid design consisting of four POF (Polyflourinated Optical Fibre) and six copper wires.

The optical fibres make the cables immune to interference from environmental noise. They also provide a transmission path with a low RFI/EMI profile, allowing use in sensitive applications with strict security requirements. The plenum-rated HyperLight cables are rugged, lightweight and flexible, with a minimum bend radius of just 2mm.
