Curtiss-Wright addresses the demands for increased data and signal processing performance, along with requirements for lower power and high performance I/O,  through our full line of processor cards supporting Intel Core, Freescale Power Architecture, AMD & NVIDIA GPGPU/Graphics, ARM and Xilinx FPGA processors. These processor cards include Single Board Computers as well as Data and Digital Signal Processor boards from mezzanine card to 3U and 6U form factors in on open standards architectures like VPX, OpenVPX, VME, PC104+, XMC, PMC and VXS. Curtiss-Wright supports the long lifecycle of defense and aerospace programs by offering most single board computers with backwards pin-compatibility to enable easy system upgrades from older products. Designed to fit the most rugged military applications, these COTS building blocks enable application stability and predictability. DO-254 safety certifiable COTS Single Board Computers (SBCs) along with associated artifact kits to support platform level certification enable rapid deployment of Curtiss-Wright cards in rugged conduction-cooled applications.

Curtiss-Wright processor cards are supported by a range of Board Support Packages (BSPs), Signal & Data Processing Libraries, FPGA toolkits, device drivers, and other libraries and source code.

ARM, Intel, Power Architecture, GPGPU and FPGA processors each offer appeal to customer applications based on the requirements of the embedded computing application. ARM processors are gaining popularity in the low-power consumption digital signal processing area because of their support for vector processing. Intel's Core processors deliver a high degree of graphics and digital signal processing functionality with data security. Power Architecture is often the choice for deterministic processing in applications where throttling performance is detrimental. Power Architecture is often the processor of choice for applications that require safety certification.
