Curtiss Wright New Product

NEW VARIANT OF POPULAR SUPERCOMPUTER-CLASS CHAMP-XD2 OPENVPX™ MODULE ELIMINATES DATA BOTTLENECKS FOR COMPUTE-INTENSIVE, MEMORY-BOUND ISR APPLICATIONS





Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division announces the CHAMP-XD2M, a memory-maximized derivative of its popular multicore Intel Xeon processor D-1500-based CHAMP-XD2 DSP module. The new rugged 6U OpenVPX™ board is ideal for memory-bound applications that require the maximum amount of memory per VPX slot as possible. While the original CHAMP-XD2, with its dual Intel Xeon Processor D devices was designed specifically to address demanding compute-bound applications, the single processor CHAMP-XD2M board is uniquely able to keep up with the “firehose” of incoming data from memory intensive applications such as sensor fusion. The board expands Curtiss-Wright’s supercomputer-class DSP module family with the industry’s first 16-core Xeon Processor D based COTS module to support up to 128 Gbytes (GB) of onboard DDR-4 memory, the maximum supportable by the processor. The CHAMP-XD2M also features a Xilinx® UltraScale™ Core Function FPGA.

Atrenne's Small Form Factor 760 Series chassis Gold Rating

Rugged component and system vendor, Atrenne Integrated Solutions, Inc. announced today that its Small Form Factor SFF 760 Series chassis received a Gold Rating at the 2016 Military & Aerospace Electronics Innovators Awards.  The Innovators Awards are selected based on innovation, value to the user, sustainability, meeting a defined need, collaboration, and impact. 

The award winning SFF 760 series rugged chassis enables off-the-shelf Mini-ITX and PCIe commercial electronics CCAs to be deployed in the SWAP and cost-constrained, harsh environments characteristic of ground mobile, naval and airborne applications, including stratospheric altitudes, well above 50,000 feet.  Commercial components are typically not designed to operate in extreme mil-aero environments.  For example, commercial CCAs are often designed for atmospheric pressure corresponding to 10,000 feet and below. 

“It is a great honor to be recognized by Military & Aerospace Electronics,” noted Eran Strod, Director of Marketing, Atrenne Integrated Solutions.  “Atrenne prides itself on innovation and responsiveness to customers and our SFF 760 Series embodies our commitment to excellence.”
