Intel is a world technology leader, enjoying a stellar reputation for the absolute highest performance in commercial processor technologies.

Today’s embedded, aerospace and defense industries rely heavily on modern commercial technology to meet the demanding power, size, and performance requirements of today’s mission-critical systems. Intel’s Tick-Tock technology cadence, which alternates microarchitecture advancements with power saving die geometry shrinkage, has produced continuous performance improvements with reliable, scalable processing options available to suppliers of Single Board Computers (SBCs) and DSP engines for use in embedded control, processing, and compute-intensive applications.

As an Intel Technology Partner, Curtiss-Wright works closely with Intel to select only specific Intel processors supported within Intel’s embedded technology group. These processors enjoy long life availability and meet the high reliability requirements that Curtiss-Wright products demand for the long-term success of your programs.

SWaP-Optimized for Rugged Deployed Platforms

Intel processing modules from Curtiss-Wright combine multi-core processing capabilities, ECC protected memory subsystems, high-speed I/O, and some with advanced graphics capabilities, all in embedded form factors. Curtiss-Wright’s innovative thermal management designs at the subsystem level have enabled us to reliably integrate Intel Core processors across extended temperature ranges using advanced cooling methods, resulting in reliable and deterministic performance even at high operational temperatures.

Integrated GPUs Save You Even More Space

Incredible advancements with Intel’s integrated Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) have pushed the performance of their latest Core architecture chips beyond those of yesterday’s discrete GPUs. Whether used with OpenGL™ for mapping and graphics applications, or with OpenCL™ libraries to accelerate ISR and signal processing algorithms, these integrated GPUs combine incredibly high performance with low latency and increased security, while at the same time saving you valuable space, power and overall system complexity and costs.  

Picking the Right Processor for the Application

  The recently announced Intel Xeon® D processors offer the highest compute performance for embedded applications. With up to 16 Broadwell processing cores, each supporting AVX2 math acceleration engines, the Xeon D offers unprecedented processing power in a highly integrated System on a Chip (SoC). Native 10 GigE ports and a DMA engine for PCIe Gen 3 in the Xeon D represent key additions for system designers.

The Skylake Xeon E3-1505 processor, formerly Skylake-H, combines quad-core hyper-threading Xeon processing with an integrated GPU – offers essentially the same functionality as the Core i7 family.  
  Intel’s Core™ i7 family combines quad-core hyper-threading performance with an integrated graphics GPU engine for high performance computing, control, and graphical display applications. With a wide range of supported operating systems and powerful virtualization capabilities, the Core i7 family offers outstanding performance-per-watt capabilities with unprecedented levels of integration and application flexibility. 
  Intel also has a line of low-power processors with mid-level performance. In the latest Atom™ product family, Intel has identified their Bay Trail Atom processor as meeting the unique low power requirements for the embedded market, packing a powerhouse of features with quad-core performance onto an SoC while consuming less than 10 watts of power.
