6U VPX and VME computer boards based on 4th Gen Intel Core i7 introduced by Curtiss-Wright

Posted by John Keller

ASHBURN, Va., 9 June 2013. Curtiss-Wright Controls Defense Solutions in Ashburn, Va., is introducing two embedded computing products based on the 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor, which was unveiled last week.

The first Curtiss-Wright product is the CHAMP-AV9 rugged, high performance 6U OpenVPX (VITA 65) digital signal processing (DSP) engine based on the quad-core Intel Core i7-4700EQ processor for applications in extreme environmental conditions.

The second product is the 6U VME64 S/DVME-1908 rugged, high performance VME single board computer based on the 4th generation Intel Core i7-4700EQ processor for upgrading legacy systems based on older processor technology or contemporary computer boards that require high levels of ruggedization.

The CHAMP-AV9 offers 614 billion floating point operations per second performance per board, not including the on-chip general-purpose graphics processing unit (GPGPU) numerical co-processors, and 40 gigabit per second Ethernet or Infiniband data plane fabric, providing 14 gigabytes per second full duplex throughput with RDMA to support scalable, distributed, real-time computing.

The CHAMP-AV9 combines the floating point performance of two 4th Generation Intel Core i7 processors with the 6U OpenVPX form-factor. With its pair of quad-core 4th generation Intel Core i7 processors. Memory support includes a dual-channel DDR3 memory sub-system to serve CPU access and streaming I/O simultaneously from the VPX backplane interfaces.

Thermal management eliminates CPU throttling. Software support includes Wind River VxWorks and Linux operating environments. Additional software support includes Curtiss-Wright's Inter-processor communications (IPC), OFED/MPI, Continuum Vector Intel AVX 2.0-optimized signal processing library and Continuum Insights Graphical Management and Debug tool.

The 6U VME64 S/DVME-1908, meanwhile, is a rugged air- or conduction-cooled computer board for high-performance operation in benign to harsh environments and is suitable for upgrading SWaP-C-constrained legacy systems such as unmanned aerial and ground vehicles, tactical aircraft, and armored vehicles to rugged naval systems.

The SVME/DMV-1908 connects its high-speed DDR3 memory subsystem connects to the Intel chipset to make the most of the powerful Intel Advanced Vector Extensions 2.0 floating point processing units on the Intel Core i7 processor.

The processor's L3 cache enables it to process larger vectors at peak rates than was previously possible with earlier processor technologies. Standard memory on the computer board includes 8 gigabytes of FLASH and as much as 16 gigabytes of SDRAM.

The S/DMV-1908's I/O includes dual XMC/PMC mezzanine module sites to support system expansion via daughter cards. I/O including Gigabit Ethernet, RS232/422, GPIO, DVI, SATA, USB, and audio.
