Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing, Leesburg, VA, has released the XMC-442 Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA-based XMC module compute engine designed for signal and image processing applications, including radar, sonar, and signal intelligence. With software driver and IP development support from Curtiss-Wright’s Continuum FXtools developer’s kit, the XMC-442 enables the development of FPGA designs.

ImageThe mezzanine module combines the FPGA, serial switched fabrics such as PCI Express and Serial RapidIO, and I/O options. It speeds the integration of high-performance FPGA-based custom calculation blocks onto embedded platforms that feature on-board XMC sites, such as VPX, VME, and CompactPCI boards. The XMC- 442 works with Curtiss-Wright’s CHAMP-FX2 and other Power Architecture-based signal processing engines to enable system designers to integrate tightly coupled FPGA/FPGA or FPGA/PowerPC solutions. Features include one bank of DDR2 SDRAM totaling 256 MB, and two banks of QDR-II+ SRAM totaling 18 MB. The XMC-442 is designed to operate in rugged environments and is available in both air- and conduction- cooled formats.
