Navy researchers order Core i7-based VME embedded computing boards from Concurrent Technologies
PATUXENT RIVER NAS, Md., 13 May 2015. U.S. Navy aircraft researchers needed VME embedded computing boards based on the third-generation Intel Core i7 microprocessor for a variety of research tasks. They found their solution from Concurrent Technologies Inc. in Woburn, Mass.
Officials of the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division at Patuxent River Naval Air Station, Md., issued a request for quote to Concurrent Technologies on Tuesday for the company's VP 927/411-41 embedded computing boards.
The VP 927/411-41 is a PC-compatible high performance, high functionality 6U VME processor board supporting the 3rd generation Intel Core processors and the Mobile Intel QM77 Express Chipset with up to 16 gigabytes of DDR3-1600 ECC DRAM.
The board is suitable for a range of demanding military, aerospace, industrial control, telecommunications, telemetry, and scientific, applications, and has options for extended-temperature versions.
Navy officials are ordering the VP 927/411-41 VME single-board computer version with a two-core 1.7 GHz Core i7 microprocessor and 8 gigabytes of dynamic random access memory, with front-panel I/O.
The single slot VME64 board features 1 or 2 PMC/XMC sites and a variety of interfaces including an option for an on-board mass storage drive and a CompactFlash site.
The Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) at Patuxent River NAS supports research and fleet support for Navy and Marine Corps aircraft systems and trainers. The NAWCAD handles the Navy's ranges, test facilities, laboratories, and aircraft for acquisition and testing needs.
The NAWCAD is part of Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), headquartered at Patuxent River NAS, which delivers aircraft, avionics, air-launched weapons, electronic warfare systems, cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), launch and arresting gear, training equipment and facilities, and all other equipment related to Navy and Marine Corps air power.
NAVAIR is responsible for research, design, development, and engineering; acquisition; test and evaluation; training facilities and equipment; repair and modification; and in-service engineering and logistics support for all naval aviation weapon systems.
Naval Air Warfare Center officials are ordering eight of the VP 927/411-41 VME single-board computers from Concurrent Technologies. For more information contact Concurrent Technologies online at www.gocct.com, or the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division at www.navair.navy.mil/nawcad.
