CHAMP-XD3 3U VPX Intel Xeon D-1746 Processor Card

3U VPX Intel Ice Lake Xeon D-1700 Processor Card

For Digital Signal Processing, HPEC, Cognitive DSP, AI & Machine Learning

For highly compute-intensive industrial, aerospace, and defense applications, the CHAMP-XD3 processor card provides Trusted Computing features alongside leading-edge processing technology for unmatched performance.

  • High-Performance Embedded Computing Processing
  • Proven Foundation for Machine Learning
  • Strengthened Security Capabilities
  • Support for Today’s Leading Open Standards including the SOSA™ Technical Standard

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 10-core Intel "Ice Lake" Xeon D-1700 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-XD3:

High-Performance Processing

The CHAMP-XD3 combines the high core count and floating-point performance of the latest Intel “Ice Lake” Xeon D-1700 processors with the substantial bandwidth and system-enabling features of the VITA 3U OpenVPX form-factor. Providing an extended temperature Intel "Ice Lake" Xeon D-1700 LCC processor with 10 cores, the CHAMP-XD3 brings Intel’s new AVX512 floating-point capability to the rugged embedded marketplace. This is coupled with 48 GB of high capacity DDR4-2400 with a bandwidth of >19 GBps per channel with three channels per processor. The extra memory bank and speed provide over 50% more memory bandwidth than prior generation modules ensuring memory accesses are not a bottleneck.

Support for Today’s Leading Open Standards

The CHAMP-XD3 offers variants to support your specific requirements, including models developed in alignment with the SOSA Technical Standard. The CHAMP-XD3 supports a 40GbE Data Plane, dual 10 GbE interfaces, and up to 16 lanes of Gen3 PCI Express® (PCIe) on the Expansion Plane. (Contact factory for Gen4 speeds.)

Strengthened Security Capabilities

The CHAMP-XD3 is part of Curtiss-Wright’s TrustedCOTS portfolio, offering built-in a AMD MPSoC FPGA with embedded dual-core Arm® A53 processor and dual-core R5 processor. In addition, the Ice Lake D processor brings new security capabilities to the Xeon D-1700 processor line, including Total Memory Encryption (TME), Software Guard Extensions (SGX), and Bootguard.

What is the Open Group Sensor Open Systems Architecture Technical Standard?

The SOSA™ Technical Standard defines a common framework for transitioning sensor systems to an open systems architecture. The SOSA standard leverages OpenVPX to define card profiles with specifications for features such as pinouts, Ethernet capabilities, and serial ports.

Our MOSA to Program Protection

Our trusted commercial-off-the-shelf (TrustedCOTS™) and enhanced TrustedCOTS (eTCOTS) portfolio of embedded security products and capabilities are aligned to give you the flexibility, control, and options you need to build in the right level of assurance into your program.

Comprehensive Protection Throughout the Product Lifecycle

Curtiss-Wright goes well beyond standard approaches to Trusted Computing to provide truly secure solutions for air, ground, and sea platforms. We keep cybersecurity and physical protection in mind, from design and testing to supply chain and manufacturing. This comprehensive, end-to-end approach creates an effective mesh of protection layers that integrate to ensure reliability of Curtiss-Wright products in the face of attempted compromise.
