LEESBURG, Va., 1 March 2009. Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing in Leesburg, Va., is introducing a low-power 3U VPX3-1100 ATOMIC single-board computer for rugged deployed military electronics applications that require a secure embedded computer.

Based on the Intel Atom processor, the card brings multi-core processing, netcentric battlefield communications connectivity, graphics, and next-generation security options to a rugged, 3U VPX architecture for space, weight and power (SWaP) constrained applications.

Potential uses for the single-board computer embedded security systems, R-MIDs (rugged-mobile internet devices), secure radios, manpacks, wearable electronics, vetronics, in-vehicle networking, telematics, situational awareness systems, graphics systems, embedded robotics, electronic vehicle health monitoring systems, and general purpose low power rugged or secure computing.

The VPX3-1100 ATOMIC provides a 1.1 GHz Intel ATOM processor and as much as 512 megabytes DDR2 SDRAM, 1 gigabyte NAND Flash, a BIOS firmware hub (FWH), and a trusted platform module for trusted boot.
