The demand for cost-effective customization in the aerospace and defense industry is at an all-time high. Systems require increased data and signal processing performance, along with lower power and high performance I/O to meet their application needs.
Curtiss-Wright addresses these industry challenges through our full line of processor cards supporting Intel Core and Xeon D, NXP Power Architecture, AMD & NVIDIA GPGPU/Graphics, and processors. Curtiss-Wright supports the long lifecycle of defense and aerospace programs by offering most single board computers with backwards pin-compatibility to enable easy system upgrades from older products. Designed to fit the most rugged military applications, these COTS building blocks enable application stability and predictability.
Curtiss-Wright processor cards are supported by a range of Board Support Packages (BSPs), Signal & Data Processing Libraries, device drivers, and other libraries and source code. DO-254 safety certifiable COTS Single Board Computers (SBCs) along with associated artifact kits to support platform level certification enable rapid deployment of Curtiss-Wright cards in rugged conduction-cooled applications.
Intel, Power Architecture, and GPGPU processors each offer appeal to customer applications based on the requirements of the embedded computing application. Intel's Core processors deliver a high degree of graphics and digital signal processing functionality with data security. Power Architecture is often the choice for deterministic processing in applications where throttling performance is detrimental. Power Architecture is often the processor of choice for applications that require safety certification.
