ITAR-free OpenVPX rugged mission computer targets compute-intense applications
Curtiss-Wright Corporation (Ashburn, VA) announced that its Defense Solutions division has introduced a new fully integrated, ITAR-free compact mission computer, the MPMC-9365 Multi-Platform Mission Computer (MPMC). The compact, SWaP-optimized MPMC-9365 supports up to three (3) small form factor Intel Core i7 3rd Generation 2.1 GHz Quad-Core processor-based Curtiss-Wright VPX3-1257 3U OpenVPX single board computers (SBCs) to deliver 400 GFLOPS of compute power. It can also be configured with up to two (2) VPX3-530 Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA 4GS/s ADC/DAC 3U VPX modules that deliver an aggregate performance rated at 10TMACS. Each of the VPX3-530 module’s four (4) onboard ADCs have a data capture rate of 4GS/s, while each of the four (4) onboard DACs boasts an update rate of 5.6GS/s. To support high speed data transfers across its six (6) available slots, the compact system supports Gen 2 PCIe and Ethernet switching. The fully integrated, rugged system enables system designers to rapidly and easily integrate intensive compute power into deployed military platforms. Features for harsh environments include:
- Circuit cards installed in the MPMC-9365’s system enclosure are isolated from external environmental conditions such as humidity, dust and sand.
- Thermal transfer between the card edges of the system’s conduction-cooled 3U VPX cards and the side walls of the enclosure.
- Heat is removed from the system’s interior via an integral speed-controlled fan.
