Performance, cost, and product longevity are frequently the top buying decisions with SBCs. Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions’ SVME/DMV-196, its newest Power Architecture (PA) based 6U VME SBC, fits the bill for these requirements.
The rugged SBC delivers up to 6x higher performance in a similar power envelope and at a lower price point compared to earlier single- and dual-processor PA VME SBC designs. Highlighting Curtiss-Wright’s commitment to its VME customers, the SVME/DMV-196 is the first in a new family of SBCs designed with the company’s new obsolescence-fighting FPGA-based Helix PCI Express to VME64x interface. To further aid longevity of supply, a key requirement for most rugged embedded defense and aerospace applications, the board’s T2080 processor is backed with NXP Semiconductor’s 15-year life cycle.
“This powerful new Power Architecture SBC delivers all the advantages of non-throttled quad-core processing and AltiVec while easing technology insertion for customers using a previous generation of Curtiss-Wright products,” said Lynn Bamford, senior VP and general manager of the Defense Solutions division.
