It all starts in the mechanical design process, where our engineers utilize existing Trenton Systems components, such as our soon to be released BPG8194 PCI Express Gen3 backplane, and create a rackmount server that will provide customers with a high performance, flexible, computing solution.
The TRC4015 4U rackmount server is a prime example of our approach to utilizing systems engineering. Designing this solution around the BPG8194 backplane allows end users to craft solutions for demanding applications like a video wall controller or GPU-based computing solution.
System Features Include:
- Up to 8, front access HDD/SDDs
- Single or dual-processor SBC
- Built-in fan speed control
- Redundant power supply
- Rugged aluminum chassis
- 5-year warranty on SBC
- 5-year warranty on backplane
- Stable system configurations
This backplane design feature enables the TRC4015 rackmount computer to support as many as eight, PCI Express x16 video processing or graphics cards with the high bandwidth and data throughput that is offered by GEN3 PCIe x16 electrical interfaces. Processing options include Trenton’s dual-processor BXT7059 and the single-processor TSB7053.
The front panel also includes a full-width front panel door, a Slim-line optical media bay, two USB ports, diagnostic LEDs, power and system reset switches. The TRC4015 features high-capacity system fans, built-in fan speed control, and front access redundant power supplies to maximize system reliability in demanding computing applications.
We’re gearing up for production in the coming weeks, so now’s the time to give our sales team a call at (800) 875-6031 or (770) 287-3100 to discuss your exact system needs.
As we’re all well aware, PCI Express Gen3 can provide a serious performance boost to I/O intensive applications, but few vendors have the expertise needed to build high-density backplanes that can achieve maximum throughput. For example, the 3.0 specification requires a pre-validation of the link before any data transmission, and if the automatic equalization training cannot establish a reliable link, then it won’t allow the transmission of data at 8Gb/s speeds, resulting in slower than expected card-to-card as well as card-to-SBC data transfers within a typical system design.
|Base Clock Speed
PCIe 3.0 = 8.0GHz
PCIe 2.0 = 5.0GHz
PCIe 1.1 = 2.5GHz
PCIe 3.0 = 1000MB/s
PCIe 2.0 = 500MB/s
PCIe 1.1 = 250MB/s
PCIe 3.0 = 32GB/s
PCIe 2.0 = 16GB/s
PCIe 1.1 = 8GB/s
|Data Transfer Rate
PCIe 3.0 = 8.0GT/s
PCIe 2.0= 5.0GT/s
PCIe 1.1 = 2.5GT/s
At Trenton Systems we’ve been working on a new PCI Express Gen3 backplane that will feature eight card slots with PCIe x16 electrical interfaces in order to maximize interface speeds while at the same time lowering data latencies. So if performance and expandability are important in a mission critical application, this may be the ideal solution.
The BPG8194 is a standard PICMG® 1.3 backplane designed to serve as the backbone of industrial and military-grade rackmount computer systems that need to support high-performance PCIe Gen3 option cards. This backplane will also support a wide array of single board computers including our popular dual processor BXT7059, the single processor TSB7053, and the upcoming THD8141 single-processor SBC.
