|AMI - Aptio 4.x|
|Intel® C604 Platform Controller Hub (PCH)|
|Dual-Processor, PICMG 1.3 SHB supports two Intel Xeon E5-2400 v2 processors and up to 48GB of DDR3-1600 memory|
48GB system memory is supported when populating the board’s six-channel DDR3 (DDR3-1600) interface, and the associated six Mini-DIMM sockets (3 per CPU) with 8GB Mini-DIMMs.
The maximum memory interface speed supported is governed by several application considerations including which Intel® Xeon® E5-2400 v2 or Intel® Xeon® E5-2400 Series processors are used on the BXT7059. The chart below shows the max memory interface speed possible with each BXT7059 processor option.
Note: All of the processor options listed here support Intel® Hyper-Threading
|PCI Express Edge Card Interfaces|
Standard PICMG 1.3 PCI Express Interfaces – Automatically adapts to graphics or server-class backplane PCIe link configurations. The direct PCIe links from the board’s processors (links A0, A1, A2, A3, IOB33 and PEX10) may operate as PCIe Gen 1.1, PCIe Gen 2.0 or PCIe Gen 3.0 depending on the backplane design. The x4 link from the board’s PCH (link B0) is always a PCIe 2.0 or 1.1 link regardless of what is connected to this link and the option card that is used. PCIe link (B0) from the board’s PCH has a x4 default configuration and may automatically bifurcate into four, x1 PCIe links depending on the target device. The optional x4 link available with a Trenton IOB33 expansion module is a PCIe 2.0/1.1 link. The IOB33 expansion link may operate as 4 – x1 links form the BXT7059 with a SPI updated to the board. Contact Trenton is you are interested in this SPI update.
Optional PCI Express PEX10 Link Expansion – Installing a Trenton PEX10; PCI Express Expansion module, on the back of the BXT7059 provides four additional x4 PCIe Gen 3 links to a backplane that is equipped with a mating PEX10 interface connector and plumbed for PCIe 3.0. The backplane may use these additional x4 links independently or as one additional x16 PCIe or two x8 PCI Express links. The links from the PEX10 connector my operate as PCIe 1.1, 2.0 or 3.0 links depending on the backplane construction and end point devices connected to the interface.
A Word About PCI Express 3.0 Interfaces – PCIe 3.0 doubles the PCIe 2.0 per lane interface speed from 500MB/s (5GT/s) to 1GB/s (8 GT/s) via speed changes and protocol enhancements. As with all previous versions of the PCI Express specification, the PCIe 3.0 interface is backwards compatible and will run Gen 3, Gen 2 and Gen 1.1 I/O cards on the same interface link. Running a PCIe 3.0 target device such as a Gen 3 I/O card at the actual PCIe 3.0 interface speed of 1GB/s requires that the PCIe 3.0 link from the root complex (i.e. the processor on the BXT7059) to the target card be tuned and optimized to meet the speed requirements of PCI Express 3.0. If these tuning conditions are slightly off and not fully optimized, then the interface will operate at a slower interface speed. Contact Trenton for more details regarding the specific of your particular PCIe 3.0 implementation.

*BP LAN Cable Option via P22 – You can build your own alternate backplane LAN cable using the instructions in the Jumpers, Connectors and Memory document for the BXT7059 or you can take advantage on this third LAN interface by using the pre-made alternate backplane LAN cable with Trenton part number: 193500001150-00.
Note: When using the alternate backplane LAN cable, this effectively disconnects the LAN routing down to SHB edge connector C. In other words, this is an either / or LAN interface.
|Eight USB 2.0 ports – Two each on the I/O bracket and on-board headers plus four routed to SHB edge connector “C%|
The BXT7059 provides a watchdog timer with seven programmable timeout periods of 32 msec, 128 msec, 512 msec, 1 second, 4 seconds, 8 seconds or 32 seconds via board component U4. When enabled the WDT generates a system reset. WDT control is supplied via the General Purpose IO pins from the Intel® C604 Platform Controller Hub (PCH).
See the watchdog timer section in the specifications chapter of the BXT7059 Hardware Manual for more detailed information and a WDT programming example.

|Trenton’s BXT7059 has been tested using a number of popular and readily available operating systems including: Microsoft Windows XP X64, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 7 and a number of variations of Linux including Red Hat. This testing process confirms the BXT7059’s PCI Express interface and device I/O functionality. Trenton does not recommend using the Microsoft Windows XP32 SP2 or SP3 operating system due to limited functionality concerns. Contact Trenton Tech Support for additional information.|
