Xeon D processor-based high performance OpenVPX DSP cards meet compute-intensive C4ISR application needs

Version 2

    Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division has begun shipments of its family of rugged Digital Signal Processing (DSP) engine modules based on the Intel® Xeon® processor D (code-named "Broadwell-DE"). The open architecture compute engines, designed for use in very compute-intensive C4ISR aerospace and defense applications, are the industry’s first to deliver supercomputing-class processing to rugged 3U and 6U VPX architecture COTS environments. 8-core and 12-core versions of the Xeon processor D-based small form factor 3U OpenVPX™ CHAMP-XD1 and Early Access Unit versions of the 6U OpenVPX CHAMP-XD2 DSP modules have already been delivered and are currently under evaluation by almost all of the aerospace and defense market’s leading Tier 1 and Tier 2 Prime Contractors.

     

    The CHAMP-XDx module family delivers unprecedented Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) processing capabilities to embedded systems deployed in airborne and ground, manned and unmanned programs. The CHAMP-XDx module family is designed for the most demanding deployed High Performance Embedded Computing (HPEC) systems, including next-generation Radar, EW and a wide range of C4ISR applications.
