Embedded computing module is for military video processing and display applications like video stabilization, image processing, and terrain tracking.

ASHBURN, Va. – The Curtiss-Wright Corp. Defense Solutions division in Ashburn, Va., is introducing the XMC-4740 rugged video-processing mezzanine module for high-performance video processing and display applications.

The product is for aerospace and defense graphics applications with significant video data processing requirements, such as video stabilization, image processing & enhancement, terrain and object tracking or 3D visualization of geospatial data. Curtiss-Wright is introducing it through its reseller agreement with WOLF Advanced Technology in Stouffville, Ontario.

The XMC-4740 has a 1.2 TFLOPS AMD Radeon E9171 graphics processing unit (GPU) that provides twice the performance, at similar power levels, compared to the previous E8860 generation GPU.

The XMC (VITA 42/61) mezzanine module supports as many as five simultaneous display outputs to DisplayPort and DVI output interfaces. The module’s GPU has 4 gigabytes of high-speed GDDR5 128-bit graphics memory. The XMC-4740, available in air- and conduction-cooled configurations.
