Unique Features

Advanced CPU (6th Gen Intel® Xeon E3-1268Lv5, i7-6700TE)

HORUS428A is applied with one of the newest CPU, 6th Gen Intel® Xeon E3-1268Lv5, i7-6700TE which is a micro architecture using 14mn as same as its predecessor Broadwell. This 4 core 8 threads CPU runs at 2.4GHz clock speed as an average, yet it is able to process as 8 cores by the 8 threads architecture and accelerates up to 3.4 GHz by Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 during peak loads. As well as the incredible computing performance of Intel® 6th generation CPU.

 

The Best Thermal Design for the High-end CPU

7starlake is a R&D oriented solution provider specializes in developing ruggedized systems that support high resistance to shock and vibration, and wide range extended operating temperatures from subzero to unusual high temperature. In order to handle the high TDP of Intel® Xeon E3-1268Lv5, i7-6700TE (35W), we apply a special thermal design to HORUS428A called “dual-sides thermal design”. And three different types of thermal modules (copper heat-spreaders, liquid-vapor heat-pipes, aluminum heat-sink) are applied on each side to achieve effective and efficient heat dissipation on both right- and left-sides.

CPU

The HORUS428A offers highly effectively heat conductive and heat convective thermal solutions to meet the demands of customers’ extended temperature requirements. The heat conductive solutions uses an aluminum flat mass to place in direct contact with the processor and chipset, the heat from chips then transfers it to the case of the system. In addition, the convective thermal solutions introduce airflow directed to move across the surface of a fin style heatsink placed on top of the processor and chipset. This can be done with the aid of an appropriately sized fan placed in top of the fin style heatsink. Alternately, enclosure airflow can be routed to flow across a fin style heatsink.

Thermal Measurement

7starlake provides real lab testing figures to show how CPU performance is with each tailor made thermal kits as important references and design guide for system engineers. For system integration, the crucial challenge is the operation performance under high temperature, thus 7starlake conducts long time experiments to make sure the superior testing result for all critical missions. By revealing temperature at processor T junction, processor die and heat sink, 7starlake is able to analyses the thermal solution we designed achieves maximum efficacy and observe CPU performance. The high temperature testing takes 5.5 hours which at each temperature point we burn in HORUS428A for two hour, from 40°C to 50°C.
