For Digital Signal Processing, AI & Machine Learning

For highly compute-intensive industrial, aerospace, and defense applications, the CHAMP-XD1 processor card provides Trusted Computing features alongside leading-edge processing technology for unmatched performance. For enhanced Trusted Computing features and the SOSA Technical Standard alignment, please consider the CHAMP-XD3 DSP Card.

The CHAMP-XD1 is ideal for:

  • High-Performance Processing
  • Proven Foundation for Machine Learning
  • Strengthened Security Capabilities
  • Support for Today’s Leading Open Standards

This high-performance module, designed for the rigors of digital signal processing (DSP) and emerging machine learning and artificial intelligence applications, delivers incredible processing capability through its 8 or 12-core Intel Xeon D processor. The board includes a core function FPGA for critical board functions and general purpose I/O, and includes a dedicated Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) for system monitoring and health.

Bring new levels of performance to your ISR and EW systems with the CHAMP-XD1:

High-Performance Processing

The CHAMP-XD1 combines its processor’s high core count and floating-point performance with the substantial bandwidth and system-enabling features of the VITA 3U OpenVPX form-factor. Providing an extended temperature Intel Xeon D processor with 8 or 12 cores, the CHAMP-XD1 has a peak performance of 410 GFLOPS or 576 GFLOPS respectively. This is coupled with 16 or 32 GB of high capacity DDR4-2133 with a bandwidth of >17 GBps per channel with two channels per processor.

Proven Foundation for Machine Learning

The CHAMP-XD1 Xeon D processor supporting OpenVINO framework enables system integrators to have flexibility in choosing the optimal combination of functionality, interfaces, performance, and SWaP for their machine learning and artificial intelligence computing applications.

Strengthened Security Capabilities

The CHAMP-XD1 is part of Curtiss-Wright’s TrustedCOTS portfolio, offering built-in Intel Trusted Computing mechanisms and flexible APIs to support secure software solutions. The CHAMP-XD1 has been tested and proven as a trusted hardware foundation for Wind River Titanium Security Suite to reduce development time, cost, and complexity for system engineers.

Support for Today’s Leading Open Standards

The CHAMP-XD1 offers variants to support your specific requirements, including models developed in alignment with the SOSA Technical Standard or E-OSA specifications.
