[Avionics Today March 5, 2014] Curtiss Wright has introduced its first rugged XMC single board computer, XMC-109, designed to increase processing applications with a low energy footprint.

The single board computer is being offered in both air and conduction-cooled configurations. With a 1.2 GHz Freescale dual-core QorIQ P2020, the XMC-109 can add processing power or supplement existing processing capability with an independent processor mezzanine module on host carriers such as 3U/6U VPX, 6U VME or 3U/6U CompactPCI (cPCI) platforms.
“When slot-count is at a premium, this small XMC mezzanine processor brings the power of Freescale’s QorIQ P2020 processor, with its dual 1.2 GHz cores and flexible I/O capabilities, to processing applications that require a low-power footprint,” said Lynn Bamford, senior vice president and general manager of Curtiss Wright's defense solutions division.
