OTTAWA, 3 Oct. 2011. Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing in Ottawa is introducing the affordable, rugged SVME/DMV-194 VME single board computers. The 6U VME64 CPU board is based on a Freescale Power Architecture QorIQ P2020 processor with dual 1.2 GHz cores. The air- or conduction-cooled computer board is for upgrading existing embedded computing systems with size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C) constraints that are based on relatively old PowerPC or Power Architecture processors, Curtiss-Wright officials say.
The SVME/DMV-194 offers power dissipation of 20 to 25 Watts, and comes in a variety of ruggedness levels. The board features two 64-bit PMC/XMC sites, built-in-test (BIT), non-volatile memory programmer, and secure erase utility.
I/O includes Gigabit Ethernet, as many as six serial ports, SATA, 1553, and USB 2.0 ports, and optional pin-out modes for backplane compatibility.
Software support includes VxWorks BSP and driver suite; Curtiss-Wright Wind River Linux 4.x; and Green Hills INTEGRITY BSP and driver suite. For more information contact Curtiss-Wright online at www.cwcembedded.com.
