Leesburg, VA - A new low power, high performance, small factor VPX3-1100 ATOMIC board from Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing is designed for rugged deployed aerospace and defense (A&D) applications that require highly secure computing.
Based on the Intel Atom processor, the card brings advanced multi-core processing, netcentric battlefield communications connectivity, graphics and next-generation security options to a rugged, small form factor 3U VPX architecture.
Featuring Curtiss-Wright Controls's patent-pending 2-Level Maintenance Secure Computing perimeter defense technology, the VPX3-1100 ATOMIC enables systems integrators to build secure rugged defense electronic systems for multiple applications that need to protect sensitive information, encryption keys, Intellectual Property (IP), or reverse engineering at the blade level.
The new SBC is designed for space, weight, and power (SWaP) constrained applications such as embedded security systems, R-MIDs (Rugged-Mobile Internet Devices), secure radios, manpacks, wearable electronics, vetronics, in-vehicle networking, telematics, situational awareness systems, graphics systems, embedded robotics, electronic vehicle health monitoring systems, and general purpose low power rugged or secure computing.
The VPX3-1100 ATOMIC provides a 1.1GHz Intel ATOM processor and up to 512 MB DDR2 SDRAM, 1GB NAND Flash, a BIOS Firmware Hub (FWH) and a Trusted Platform Module for trusted boot. The backplane input/output includes two (2) high performance PCI (x1) fabrics, 2x GbE interfaces, 2x RS232 Serial interfaces, 8x GPIO, 2x USB 2.0, VGA, Audio (Mic, L/R), and XMC I/O.
Additional features include a Basecard user-programmable FPGA and Secure Computing Mezzanine card for advanced security and perimeter defense applications.
Volume pricing for the VPX3-1100 ATOMIC starts at $2,800. Availability is June, 2009.
