Arm OpenVPX Single Board Computers
Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions offers 3U OpenVPX Single Board Computers (SBCs) using Arm v8 processors. These COTS SBCs provide a full complement of I/O and are designed for rugged air and conduction cooled applications.
The Arm architecture delivers undeniable advantages for deployed operations – low power, low cost and secure, high-integrity computing, all in the coveted SWaP-optimized footprint required by defense and aerospace platforms. Arm’s RISC- (Reduced Instruction Set Computing) based architecture provides a streamlined instruction set that serves as a flexible, simplified option for modern embedded computing.
