Facing increasing SWaP-C demands and harsh environments, boards now need to be smaller and more powerful than ever, while still working with tight budgets. Standard cooling methods offer a low-cost, reliable solution when paired with a proven ecosystem of hardware and software.  

As the only dual Xeon D board on the market, Curtiss-Wright’s CHAMP-XD2 offers higher compute density per slot allowing Intel architecture into the most rugged environments. Our advanced designs allow you to take advantage of mainstream cooling methodologies with advanced techniques and proven tools from high-performance computing, giving you the power and size, you need with less risk and associated costs.

The 6U OpenVPX Intel Xeon D DSP is available in a range of ruggedized configurations to deliver optimal performance in the harshest deployed environments, including air-cooled and conduction-cooled variants. There is also resident a Core Function field programmable gate array (FPGA) used for Trusted COTS security and general-purpose I/O in addition to a dedicated Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) FPGA used for system monitoring and health.
