The CHAMP-AV8 6U OpenVPX digital signal processor (DSP) combines the floating-point performance of the latest 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processors with the substantial bandwidth and system-enabling features of the 6U OpenVPX™ form factor. Utilizing a pair of 2.1 GHz quad-core processors featuring the Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) instruction set, the CHAMP-AV8 DSP card delivers up to 269 GFLOPs. The high-performance cores are kept working efficiently with three levels of internal cache and a 21 GB/s (peak) DDR3 memory sub-system connected directly to the processor.

The CHAMP-AV8 digital signal processor board incorporates the enhancements of the OpenVPX (VITA 65) standard with a complete suite of Data Plane, Expansion Plane and Control Plane interfaces. With up to 32 GB/s of backplane performance, the CHAMP-AV8 OpenVPX Intel Core i7 signal processor has the bandwidth required to effectively harness the power of the processors.

The CHAMP-AV8 Intel processor card is supported with operating systems and development tools including VxWorks®, Linux®, and Gedae®. Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions provides signal processing libraries and a high-performance Inter- Processor Communications (IPC) Library for message passing and bulk data transfers. The Continuum Insights suite of multi-processor development tools provides system management, development, debugging and fabric analysis features to lower the cost of developing multi-core, multiprocessor software.
