XMC Processor Cards

Add Extra Capability Without Occupying an Extra Slot

Our XMC mezzanine cards provide an easy way to add processing power and meet performance requirements within the most demanding size, weight, and power (SWaP) constraints. Create a zero-slot solution by mounting the mezzanine on a graphics or FPGA card or on the power supply of a Curtiss-Wright 3U or 6U computing system. Alternatively, you can double the density of a single-slot solution using any 3U or 6U VPX card with an available XMC mezzanine site, such as a single board computer (SBC), digital signal processing (DSP), or VPX carrier card. Our XMC processor modules can even be used as standalone cards for applications on small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and robots where a VPX carrier card is not required.
