LEESBURG, Va., 5 Oct. 2007. Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing in Leesburg, Va., is offering the XMC-442 Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA-based XMC module (VITA 42) compute engine.

The XMC-442 is for demanding, high-performance signal and image processing applications including radar, sonar, and signals intelligence. It comes with software driver and IP development support from Curtiss-Wright's Continuum FXtools developer's kit.

The XMC-442 mezzanine module combines a Xilinx Virtex-5 SXT (SX50T/SX95T) FPGA, serial switched fabrics such as PCI Express and Serial RapidIO (SRIO), and I/O options. It speeds the integration of high-performance FPGA-based custom calculation blocks onto embedded platforms that feature on-board XMC sites, such as VPX, VME, and CompactPCI boards.

The XMC-442 works with Curtiss-Wright's CHAMP-FX2, and other Power Architecture-based signal processing engines to enable system designers to integrate tightly coupled FPGA/FPGA or FPGA/PowerPC solutions.
