PARIS – Curtiss-Wright Controls Defense Solutions has introduced the VPX6-1957, a high performance Intel Architecture-based OpenVPX processing engine that features the Intel 3rd Gen Core i7 Quad-Core (“Ivy Bridge”) processor. Designed for harsh environments, the VPX6-1957 Intel Core i7 SBC is suitable for handling applications with demanding storage, data logging and sensor processing needs.
The single board computer’s Intel 22nm quad-core processor is supported with a 21 GB/s (peak) DDR3 memory subsystem connected directly to the processor that maximizes data throughput to its AVX floating point units, Curtiss-Wright said. The VPX6-1957 is claimed to feature the widest range of I/O support available on an Intel-based VPX SBC, including Serial RapidIO (SRIO), x16 PCIe, Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and 10 GbE.
The VPX6-1957 supports high-bandwidth fabrics including Serial RapidIO Gen2 and PCI Express Gen2 via the SBC’s P1 & P2 connectors. The VPX6-1957 also supports dual 10 GbE ports to enable connectivity with heterogeneous boards in a high performance embedded computing environment.
