For Highly Reliable Graphics Generation and Display

The VPX3-717 is an industry-leading, rugged graphics processor based on the AMD Radeon E8860 GPU and packaged in a 3U OpenVPX form factor. Its V3-717 variant is designed for systems with Design Assurance Level (DAL) A process assurance where AC/AMC 20-152A is the means of compliance to apply DO-254, along with additional objectives for custom devices, COTS devices, and the board itself.

The VPX3-717 and V3-717’s high-performance AMD Radeon E8860 GPU and large complement of dedicated video memory make the boards ideal for use in demanding, graphics-rich applications that require extensive video processing and display capabilities. Designed for high reliability and a long lifecycle, the VPX3-717 and V3-717 are especially well-suited to support embedded training, moving maps, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), 360° situational awareness, degraded visual environment (DVE), and other graphics-, video-, and compute-intensive applications.

Bring the powerful capabilities of the VPX3-717 or V3-717 to your 3U VPX system:

High-performance Graphics Processing and Display

The VPX3-717 and V3-717’s AMD Radeon E8860 GPU and its graphics drivers have been trusted and proven in safety-critical applications, making the boards low-risk. The GPU features six independent and simultaneous graphics outputs, 2 GB of dedicated video memory, and hardware acceleration for video compression encoding and decoding. The boards add an XMC site supporting both peripheral and processor mezzanines, as well as Curtiss-Wright’s IPX Personality Module for low-latency video capture and graphics output format conversions.

DO-254 DAL A Safety-certifiable Variant

The V3-717 is designed for systems with Design Assurance Level (DAL) A process assurance where AC/AMC 20-152A is the means of compliance to apply DO-254, along with additional objectives for custom devices, COTS devices, and the board itself. The V3-717 hardware can be delivered with a DO-254 certification artifact kit and is supported by a suite of CoreAVI® software drivers that are aligned to the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) standard. The board also supports DO-178C certifiable graphics drivers for OpenGL SC 1.0.1, OpenGL SC 2.0, video decode, and video encoding, making Curtiss-Wright your one-stop for your certifiable graphics needs.

SWaP-reducing XMC Processor Mezzanine Site

In addition to supporting peripheral mezzanines, the VPX3-717 and V3-717 mezzanine site also fully supports XMC processor mezzanines. This architecture inverts the traditional graphics mezzanine hosted on a processor card to unleash uncompromised graphics and video processing performance without occupying additional slots within a system. This seamless solution can provide processing and perform streaming video, overlay, and recording all in a single 3U OpenVPX slot.
