ASHBURN, Va. – The Curtiss-Wright Corp. Defense Solutions division in Ashburn, Va., is offering software support from Green Hills Software in Santa Barbara, Calif., on select Curtiss-Wright NXP-based embedded computing boards.

This support comes from an agreement to offer the Green Hills INTEGRITY-178 tuMP safety- and security-critical multicore real-time operating system (RTOS) on computer boards based on NXP Semiconductors Power Architecture processors.

Among the first Curtiss-Wright computer boards with Green Hills multicore solutions for critical and high-assurance systems are the RTCA/DO-254 DAL-C safety-certifiable 3U VPX VPX3-151, which is based on NXP's QorIQ P3041 processor.

Designed with an RTCA/DO-254 design process from the beginning of the development cycle, Curtiss-Wright's safety-certifiable multicore processor computer boards provide system designers with COTS hardware and software for avionics.

Curtiss-Wright is offering an RTCA/DO-254 data artifact package for each computer board and a certifiable board support package (BSP) with RTCA/DO-178 artifacts for the multicore RTOS.

Curtiss-Wright and Green Hills officials also plan to announce support for the RTOS on Curtiss-Wright's family of NXP QorIQ T2080 processor-based computer boards, including the 3U VPX VPX3-133 later this year.

The INTEGRITY-178 tuMP RTOS enables users of Curtiss-Wright computer boards to use all available compute power from the module's available QorIQ cores, including virtual cores.
