Increase data, signal & front-end sensor processing performance

FPGAs have revolutionized the way digital signal processing (DSP) subsystems are configured. With a large number of gates, hardware multipliers, and high-speed serial interfaces, FPGAs enable sophisticated applications, including radar, signal intelligence, and image processing, which rely on repetitive processing that can be expressed in highly parallel form. FPGAs perform exceptionally well in FFTs, pulse compression, filters, and digital up/down converters. In deployed systems, an FPGA's technical advantage translates to smaller, lower power, and lower-cost systems. Our COTS 6U VPX FPGA cards include multiple FPGAs, a wide complement of I/O functionality and are engineered to succeed in the most demanding applications. When supercomputing processing performance is required, HPEC systems meet the most demanding rugged deployed application needs by combining the highest performance FPGAs, GPUs, processors, and networking modules available.

Simplifying Sensor Data Processing With COTS Building Blocks

The many sensors on today’s defense and aerospace platforms produce a veritable tsunami of data that must be processed quickly to ensure mission success. Open architecture standards are making it easier to leverage COTS building blocks that deliver the required balance between size, weight, power, and cost for defense applications. With COTS building blocks, integrators can reduce program risk, expedite development-to-deployment, and create affordable High-Performance Embedded Computing systems.

6U modules are targeted for applications that can accommodate the size of 6U modules and need multiple FPGAs. In general one 6U module can fit more logic than two 3U modules. See 3U FPGA processors if smaller form-factor modules are needed.

FPGA modules can be the most challenging products to develop due to the increasing power of the FPGAs and related devices and the many high-speed interfaces. Curtiss-Wright includes innovative design features and performs thorough validation to ensure rugged FPGA products will function as advertised in rugged, deployed applications.
