ASHBURN, Va., 28 May 2014. The Curtiss-Wright Corp. Defense Solutions division in Ashburn, Va., is introducing the VPX3-1701 3U VPX embedded computing module based on a CPU that has dual 1 GHz ARM processors for demanding C4ISR applications such as video, radar, and sonar data processing.

The low-power small-form-factor rugged ARM processor is rated at less than 15 Watts maximum power dissipation. The VPX3-1701 delivers the benefits of ARM technology to system designers today while providing a path to technology insertion with pin compatible, higher performance Curtiss-Wright ARM single-board computers to follow.

The VPX3-1701's high-speed backplane and XMC connectivity enable multi- gigabytes per second data flows from board-to-board through the backplane interface and from the backplane to its on-board XMC site to support the acquisition, processing, and distribution of sensor data.

The VPX-1701 is for technology refresh applications. For example, for customers looking to upgrade to VPX from their legacy CompactPCI based system architectures the VPX3-1701 delivers contemporary compute bandwidth and I/O performance for similar cost and power, company officials say.
