Enhanced MXM WOLF Chip-down NVIDIA Quadro Pascal Module

Stouffville, Ontario, July 5, 2018 - WOLF announces a new WMXM-P2000E-VO (WOLF-9176) module which uses a WOLF chip-down design to provide advanced NVIDIA® Quadro® Pascal™-based GPU technology on an extremely rugged small form factor module, making it an excellent choice for aerospace and defense applications. These modules, manufactured in North America with full component traceability, have been designed specifically for use in harsh environments with mission critical reliability requirements.


The WMXM-P2000E-VO module exceeds commercial-grade
MXM board standards for reliability and ruggedization

“This is the first NVIDIA Quadro Pascal-based enhanced MXM board designed for aerospace and defense”, said Craig McLaren, CEO of WOLF. “We look forward to providing this advanced GPU technology to our customers and partners.”

NVIDIA Quadro P2000 Embedded

The NVIDIA Quadro P2000 embedded GPU provides 2.3 TFLOPS, 768 CUDA cores, and four independent DisplayPort 1.4 outputs with support for 4K or 5K resolution, high dynamic range (HDR) video and 10-bit color depth. The 4 GB of GDDR5 memory on the module has a maximum memory bandwidth of 96 GB/s and a 128-bit memory width. HEVC (H.265) and AVC (H.264) hardware accelerated encoding and decoding are also supported.

Modules Exceed Commercial-Grade MXM

These modules have been designed to exceed commercial-grade MXM board requirements for reliability and ruggedization. The component derating meets or exceeds NASA and Rome Labs specifications for reliability. The higher grade PCB material used in the design provides greater heat resistance. ENIG PCB surface plating has been used, both for its long shelf life and its RoHS compliance. Hard gold has been used on the connector card edge for its extreme durability.

Compatible with MXM 3.1

The module uses an MXM 3.1 Type A envelope and outline with the addition of two extra mounting holes near the connector edge, providing increased reliability under extreme shock and vibration. Standard MXM 3.1 connector compliance and standard MXM mounting hole positions have been maintained to aid in system integration.

The board outline matches that of an MXM 3.1 Type a outline of 70mm x 82mm
except at the extra mounting holes, where the width increases to 88mm.

Modules Meet Military and Aerospace Standards

The WMXM-P2000E-VO modules have been designed to pass the standards that are required by aerospace and defense applications including MIL-STD-810 and DO-160 environmental tests and IPC J-STD-001 soldering standards. They have been manufactured to IPC-A-610 CLASS 3 and IPC 6012 CLASS 3 for high-reliability electronic products.

These modules have been designed to operate within an extended temperature range of -40° to +85°C. The maximum operating power of these boards can be configured from 15 to 50W. Conformal coating options are available (e.g., Parylene, Humiseal, others on request) to further protect boards which may be exposed to damp and/or dirty conditions.
