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.

  • 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

Curtiss-Wright and General Dynamics exclusively cooperate for automated artificial intelligence technology. Rapidly detect, isolate and classify RF signals in the electromagnetic spectrum through General Dynamics' SignalEye software, with Curtiss-Wright's CHAMP-XD1 module offering unmatched near real-time processing capability to respond to and protect from threats.

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.
