LEESBURG, Va., 9 Oct. 2006. Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing in Leesburg, Va., is unveiling the SVME/DMV-1901 6U VME single board computer (SBC) with the Intel Core Duo processor running at speeds of 1.67 and 2.0 GHz.

That board, which is for defense and aerospace platforms, comes in air and conduction-cooled ruggedized configurations and can be configured with a dual-core Intel Core Duo processor or a single-core Intel Core Solo processor.

"Now, VME system integrators seeking the low-power and dual-core performance of Intel's most advanced x86 processor family have a ruggedized platform for WindowsXPe, Solaris10, Linux, and soon, real-time applications," says Lynn Patterson, vice president and general manager of Curtiss-Wright's Modular Solutions group.

"For military and defense applications, the Intel Core Duo processor is bringing a new level of energy efficient performance to the VME market," says Rose Schooler, director of marketing at the Intel Infrastructure Processor Division.

Software for this new SBC includes board support packages (BSPs) for a wide variety of operating system environments. In addition to natively running WindowsXPe, the SVME/DMV-1901 is Curtiss-Wright's first VME SBC to support the Solaris 10 operating system. BSPs are currently available for WindowsXPe, Solaris10, and Linux. Support for real-time environments such as VxWorks and LynxOS will be announced soon.

The SVME/DMV-1901 is configured with a variety of I/O in addition to its two PMC/XMC expansion sites. Air-cooled front panel I/O includes onboard video graphics and SCSI interfaces.
