Rugged 3U CompactPCI-based embedded computing system for avionics and vetronics introduced by Curtiss-Wright

SAN DIEGO, 5 Aug. 2011. The Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing Embedded Systems group in San Diego is introducing the MPMC-9320-x family of rugged, convection-cooled half-ATR 3U CompactPCI embedded computing systems for space-constrained avionics, vetronics, and other harsh-environment aerospace and defense applications. The MPMC-9320 has a built-in power supply and single-board computers based on either PowerPC or Intel microprocessors. A 28-volt DC power supply, one Freescale-based DCP-124P single-board computer, three SPMC Serial PCI Mezzanine Cards, and one NAII 75C2 DIO card are standard.

Waste heat transfers between card edges and the side walls of the system enclosure. EMI filters and gaskets are included.

The embedded computer measures 600 cubic inches, and can survive in external air temperatures as hot as 55 degrees Celsius. Its rugged enclosure is designed to MIL-STD-810, MIL-STD-461, and MIL-STD-704. For more information contact Curtiss-Wright online at www.cwcembedded.com.
