Advanced Processing and C5ISR Applications

Optimal for high-performance embedded computing (HPEC), general processing, and a variety of C5ISR applications, the VPX3-1260 rugged single board computer (SBC) delivers a fully featured, all-in-one processing solution for your embedded system.

This powerful board features the 9th Gen Intel Xeon “Coffee Lake processor", offering a huge leap in performance from previous Core i7 and Xeon processors. Awarded Gold in the 2018 MAE Innovator Awards for its impressive design, the VPX3-1260 delivers a competitive edge in commercial and defense embedded systems.

Aligned with the SOSA Technical Standard

Choose from variants to support your specific requirements, including models developed in alignment with The Open Group Sensor Open Systems Architecture™ (SOSA) Technical Standard (I/O Intensive and Payload profiles), E-OSA specifications, and other OpenVPX profiles.

Advanced Processing Capability

The robust VPX3-1260 leverages Intel’s first-ever six-core processor to deliver 50% more processing power than previous four-core designs. The VPX3-1260 is the first Intel SBC to offer 10G and 40G Ethernet connectivity, providing customers faster data transfer and higher network productivity than ever before, as well as maximum flexibility to meet various integration requirements. What’s more, its local NVMe local SSD storage provides a 3-5x improvement in performance and up to 16x capacity over traditional SATA SSD interfaces.

Reliability in Challenging Environments

Maximize capability in the most demanding conditions faced by industrial technology and airborne, ground, and naval platforms. The rugged VPX3-1260 is built to VITA 47 standards for reliability and with a unique thermal design to provide the highest non-throttling performance in the industry.

Enhanced Security for Trusted Computing

The VPX3-1260 offers Intel’s latest Trusted Computing features, such as Intel Boot Guard and UEFI Secure Boot, along with secured run-time software enclaves like Intel Software Guard Extensions (SGX). Implemented as part of our TrustedCOTS Trusted Boot security framework, the VPX3-1260’s security protections help safeguard your system against physical and remote threats.

Assured Investment Protection

The VPX3-1260 is pin-compatible with previous generations of Curtiss-Wright Intel SBCs to simplify tech insertion. What’s more, the board’s processor offers Intel’s typical 15-year lifetime availability and is further supported by Curtiss-Wright’s 10+ year board availability and Total LifeCycle Management (TLCM) services to guarantee its longevity.
