Rugged 3U OpenVPX computer board with octal-core QorIQ introduced by Curtiss-Wright

Posted by John Keller

ASHBURN, Va., 25 Aug. 2013. Curtiss-Wright Controls Defense Solutions in Ashburn, Va., is introducing the VPX3-131 rugged 3U OpenVPX single-board computer with Freescale's octal-core QorIQ P4080, Dual-core QorIQ P5020/5010, or Quad-core QorIQ P3041 Power Architecture processor for SWaP-constrained environments.

The VPX3-131 combines the performance and the advanced I/O capabilities of Freescale's QorIQ 4-core, 8-core or dual 64-bit processors.

The rugged VPX3-131 is available in either air-cooled or conduction-cooled variants. Its high-speed backplane and XMC mezzanine module connectivity support multi-gigabytes per second data flows from board-to-board, both through the VPX3-131's backplane interface and from the backplane to its XMC site.

The board is designed to deliver the high bandwidth processing needed to handle the acquisition, processing, and distribution of sensor data required by demanding defense and aerospace applications such as video, radar, and sonar. The VPX3-131 is equally suited for use as a mission computer, display computer, or in SIGINT and motor control applications.

The VPX3-131 can be configured with a range of Freescale processors including the P4080, P5020/P5010 or P3041. When configured with a P4080, the VPX3-131 provides eight (8) Power Architecture E500MC 32-bit cores at 1.2 GHz. With a P5020/P5010 processor the board provides two/one (2/1) 1.5 GHz Power Architecture E5500 64-bit cores, while with the P3041 it provides four (4) Power Architecture E500MC 32-bit cores at 1.5 GHz.
