Rugged 6U OpenVPX XMC carrier card for military vehicles and aircraft introduced by Curtiss-Wright
ASHBURN, Va., 1 July 2014. The Curtiss-Wright Corp. Defense Solutions division in Ashburn, Va., is introducing the VPX6-218 rugged 6U OpenVPX XMC carrier card for deployed applications intended for harsh defense and aerospace environments, including ground combat vehicles, and manned and unmanned airborne platforms.
The rugged embedded computing carrier card, which supports eight lanes of PCI Express Gen2, enables designers to expand their system architectures with the I/O their application requires.
Its high-speed, low latency PCI Express interface communicates with the host processor over the VPX backplane. The VPX6-218 can host two 25 Watt XMCs and is designed to support today's mezzanine modules that require more power than typical I/O modules.
