(PresseBox) (Mainz, ) Mainz, Germany – December 16, 2014

SYSGO is announcing the support of its pre-certified hypervisor PikeOS for the XPedite6101 Single Board Computer (SBC) from Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES). The XPedite6101 is based on a FreescaleTMQorIQ architecture with T1042 processor, designed for high-performance networks. PikeOS adds key features like real-time, as well as safety and security, to a cost-effective and energy-efficient platform for critical networks and telecommunication applications in the Internet of Things (IoT).

“We are very happy to have the X-ES XPedite6101 supported by our certified hypervisor PikeOS", said George Brooks, Director of Business Development at SYSGO. "Our relationship with X-ES answers market interests in our combined solutions addressing the high performance and safety critical needs of our mutual customer base.”

The XPedite6101 provides a compact and cost-effective rugged computing solution with excellent processing performance-per-watt. It supports multiple processor configurations and up to 8 GB of DDR3 ECC SDRAM and also supports a number of high-performance I/O options. By supporting DPAA (Data Path Acceleration Architecture), PikeOS enables the developer to reach network performance goals while distributing the network-processing workload to different cores of the QorIQ T1042architecture, which has four e5500 cores running at up to 1.4 GHz.
