Digital-signal-processing card is cut out for the military life

High-end defence and aerospace applications are being looked at as the major target areas for Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing’s CHAMP-AV6 VPX/VPX-REDI DSP card. Included among those applications are a ground-based defensive aid sensor system, next-generation ground and airborne radars, and signal intelligence platforms.

Curtiss-Wright will deliver both boards and integrated VPX development systems to all of these customers. Developed with the company’s most advanced, highest-performance COTS technology, the CHAMPAV6 is claimed as the first DSP engine available in the new VPX (VITA 46) and VPX-REDI (VITA 48) high-performance, rugged form factors.

The VPX standards provide the next generation of performance and rugged packaging for 6U form-factor embedded computing. Each of the VPX standards offers good backplane I/O connectivity as well as improved thermal-management qualities.
