The CHAMP-AV9 is a Signal Processing Engine from Curtiss-Wright. It combines the floating point performance of the Intel Core i7 processors, with the substantial bandwidth and system-enabling features of the 6U OpenVPX form-factor.  Providing a pair of quad-core 4th generation Core-i7 (Haswell) processors, featuring the  updated AVX 2.0 instruction units and redesigned on-chip graphics execution units, the CHAMP-AV9 offers a 2-4X performance per size, weight and power improvement over previous DSP  modules.

The CHAMP-AV9 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 14 GB/s of data plane fabric and 32 GB/s of expansion plane performance the CHAMP-AV9 has the bandwidth required to effectively harness the power of the processors.
