Our I/O and communications solutions are designed to handle the toughest operating environments. That’s why we’re trusted as a proven leader in the design and production of best-of breed commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware.
Our ARINC 429 products provide high-speed, low latency communications, with interfaces to standard avionics buses. We also offer a DO-254 safety certifiable module to meet your certification needs.
Curtiss-Wright fiber-optic I/O PMC and XMC modules combine the power of a Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA and four full duplex front panel fiber-optic channels supporting speeds of between 1 and 3.125 Gbps per port.
While accessing I/O from embedded VPX modules can be done with a Rear Transition Module (RTM), accessing I/O from Mezzanine modules can be much more difficult. Curtiss-Wright provides two types of RIM modules – high speed and low speed, both supporting 3U and 6U RTM designs and differential signaling – that allow quick and easy access to your Mezzanine I/O. RIM modules enable customers to create their own cabling solutions, and can be used with a variety of Curtiss-Wright or 3rd party RTMs that support Pn6 module I/O.
SCRAMNet Shared Memory
Many computing platforms solve portions of the same real-time problem; Curtiss-Wright's shared-memory products are optimized to deliver high-speed, ultra-low latency transfer of data among these computing platforms. The simplicity and speed of Curtiss-Wright's shared memory technology suits applications requiring a high degree of synchronization and control. Curtiss-Wright’s SCRAMNet network products, for the past two decades, have proven their value as fast, simple data communications solutions for simulation, virtual reality, and other real-time applications across computing platforms.
Curtiss-Wright FibreXtreme Serial FPDP (SFPDP) data link system connects distributed devices through a specialized communications protocol (VITA 17.1-2003) optimized for maximum data throughput.
StarFabric delivers a pure switch fabric for base implementations. Curtiss-Wright StarLink PMC products offer a PCI to StarFabric bridge and can sustain a 400-440 MB/s transfer rate, allowing users to fully employ the processing power inherent in multi-board systems. The StarLink II also provides on-board StarFabric switching, so that systems may be designed without costly and space-consuming external switch cards.
