Overview

The CHAMP-WB is a signal processing engine from Curtiss-Wright that belongs to the family of user-programmable Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA based computing products. It is designed to meet the needs of embedded high-performance digital signal and image processing applications.

The CHAMP-WB is targeted specifically at wide-band, low latency applications that require large FPGA processing, wide input/output requirements, with minimal latency.

It couples the dense processing resources of a single large Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA with two high-bandwidth mezzanine sites on a rugged 6U OpenVPX™ (VITA 65) form factor module. The CHAMP-WB complements this processing capability with a data plane directly connected to the FPGA with support for Gen2 Serial RapidIO® (SRIO). 10.3 Gbps Aurora links can also be supported between FPGA cards.
