The PCI-Systems Inc. I7 CPU module is a high-speed 6U OPEN VPX single-board computer module system, based on the Intel® Core™i7 processor. It connects to the system backplane with up to x16 PCIe.

The module is composed of a mezzanine and a base board. The benefits are easier customization, maintenance, scalability and upgradeability.The mezzanine is screwed into the base board and heat brackets and all screws are held in place with anaerobic thread locker. The XMC and PMC board is installed in the usual fashion.

The 6U VPX I7 features a MILbus chip and has a 512 GB SSD SATA 3 onboard. 4 USB3, 10 USB2, 2 SATA 6 Gb/s and 4 SATA 3 Gb/s connections that can be used.
