New SVME-1900 6U VME SBC Delivers Ultra-Low Voltage, High Performance Multi-Core Processing for Power Constrained Rugged MIL Applications
LEESBURG, VA – December 10, 2007 — Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing, a leading designer and manufacturer of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) VME, VPX and CompactPCI products for the aerospace and defense market, has announced the new SVME-1900, a single 6U VME single board computer (SBC) featuring two independent Intel® Core™ Duo processor-based compute platforms, each running at speeds of 1.67 GHz. When combined with a SATA or USB hard drive, the SVME-1900s two dual-core processors provide a full-featured quad CPU embedded computing platform. The SVME-1900 speeds and simplifies the integration of high performance x86 processing while reducing system slot count for multiple processors.
The SVME-1900s two Intel Core Duo processors feature ultra-low voltage operation that significantly improves embedded system performance-per-Watt and is ideal for aerospace and defense platforms that require x86 processing and optimal performance per Watt. The SVME-1900 is available in air-cooled ruggedized configurations and can be configured with either two dual-core Intel Core Duo processors or two single core Intel® Core™ Solo processors.
“Curtiss-Wright is taking the lead in bringing high performance, low-power Intel® architecture to the deployed rugged COTS market,” said Lynn Patterson, vice president and general manager of Curtiss-Wrights Modular Solutions group. “The innovative design of the dual compute platform SVME-1900 SBC enables VME system integrators to integrate two independent dual-core x86 processing units in a single slot, for WindowsXPe, Solaris10, Linux, VxWorks, and other real-time applications. Even better, Curtiss-Wright backs its Intel Core Duo processor-based SBCs with its Guardian Select suite of services, the industrys most extensive lifecycle-management program.”
“The Intel® Core™ Duo processor raises the bar for energy efficient performance in the VME market,” says Rose Schooler, director of marketing, Embedded and Communications Processor Division, Intel. “Curtiss Wright is bringing the benefits of embedded Intel® architecture, including increased performance and long term stability, to this widely adopted standards-based form factor.”
The SVME-1900 is configured with a wide array of I/O in addition to its two PMC expansion sites. Air-cooled front panel I/O includes RS232 serial and USB interfaces.
