Kontron presents HPEC platform developed with Intel and PLX Technology

PARIS, 17 June 2013. Kontron is introducing its new technology platform, co-developed with Intel and PLX Technology, in the VPX form factor at the Paris Air Show Le Bourget 2013.

Thanks to the increase in supercomputing I/O bandwidth, the situational awareness of drones and other unmanned vehicles is being significantly enhanced.

The aim of the new Kontron HPEC platform is to enable developers to streamline the process from design to field deployment of next-generation radar and sonar applications that are expected to make a tremendous leap forward in processing power and data I/O bandwidth.


The new HPEC platform leverages Kontron's design capabilities to implement the latest Intel Core processors in a smaller, more portable, and rugged 3U VPX form factor.

Vincent Chuffart, product marketing team manager for aerospace technology of Kontron AG, is showing the latest technology platforms for the field deployment of radar, sonar, autonomous vehicles, and other 3D reconstruction-based systems.

Kontron is located in Hall 4 - Booth A76=B76.
