New XMC-109 SBC Features 1.2 GHz Freescale Dual-Core QorIQ™ P2020 Processor

ASHBURN, Va. — Curtiss-Wright Corporation (NYSE: CW) today announced that its Defense Solutions division has introduced its first rugged XMC single board computer (SBC), the new XMC-109 XMC single board computer (SBC). The low-power (<18 Watts), compact SBC enables system designers to easily add processing and flexible I/O provided by a 1.2 GHz Freescale dual-core QorIQ™ P2020 onto host carriers with an available VITA 42 site. Offered in both air- and conduction-cooled configurations, this SBC is ideal for adding processing power, or supplementing 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, Sr. VP/GM, Defense Solutions division.

Ideal for Adding Processing Power Without Adding Slot Count

The XMC-109 can be combined with a wide range of Curtiss-Wright products to create low power, small footprint solutions. For example, when added to the recently announced VPX3-716 3U VPX graphics module, the XMC-109 provides 6 heads of video output and a processor in a single slot. When extra processing power is required - but slots are limited - the XMC-109 can be simply added to any available XMC slot. When added to a 3U or dual-XMC site 6U VPX carrier card, such as Curtiss-Wright’s VPX6-215, the XMC-109 can be combined with other mezzanine cards, such as a 1553 XMC-603 or a XMC FPGA module, to create a flexible single slot solution that eases future technology insertion performance upgrades.

Comprehensive, Flexible I/O

The XMC-109 provides system designers with a broad range of I/O capabilities. Its standard I/O complement includes:

Two (2) Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) interfaces on Pn6 9 (factory configurable to 2x 1000Bx)
Two (2) asynchronous RS-232/RS-422 serial ports
Four (4) LVTTL discretes (each software configurable as input or output, with interrupt capability as input)
One (1) USB 2.0 port
One (1) SATA 2.0 port

Software Support
Software support for the XMC-109 includes Curtiss-Wright’s UBoot firmware, which provides a comprehensive suite of system debug, exerciser and update functions, built-in-test (BIT), and non-volatile memory sanitization functions. Operating environment support for the XMC-109 includes VxWorks and Linux.
