Broadens performance for both past and present

The XCR15 6U CompactPCI rugged single board computer (SBC) utilizes the highly integrated 3rd Generation Intel Core i7 processor platform to help new programs achieve the optimum combination of throughput and cost for their application while minimizing the long term cost of ownership for customers by providing a straightforward, cost-effective upgrade path. 

What an Intel-based engine brings

Building the XCR15 around Intel’s 3rd Generation Core i7 processor allows Abaco Systems to offer integrated graphics and memory controller plus dual- and quad-core processing all in one device. In addition to up to 20% (compute) and 30% (3D graphics) performance improvement over the previous processor generation, the third generation technology also brings Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) signal processing, intelligent performance on-demand with Intel Turbo Boost technology, PCIe Gen 3 (8 GT/sec) and USB 3.0 (10x the Bandwidth of 2.0) data transfer capability, and Hyper-Threading technology.


The XCR15 is designed to meet the requirements of a wide range of applications from industrial through to fully rugged defense and aerospace programs. It offers extended temperature capability and a range of air- and conduction-cooled build levels.

A rich software choice

The XCR15 includes comprehensive Deployed Test Software (BIT and BCS) plus operating system support for Windows 7, Open Linux, Wind River Linux, and VxWork
