VPX6-185

6U VPX SBC with Dual NXP Power Architecture 8640 Processors provides high performance VPX processing and a long list of features and I/O interfaces to satisfy the most demanding requirements of embedded computing.

Overview

The VPX6-185 NXP Single Board Computer (SBC) provides functionality to the Curtiss-Wright VPX family that includes quad-processor DSP, FPGA accelerator and XMC/PMC carrier modules. The VPX6-185 6U VPX SBC is based on the 8640/8641 processor. Available in single-core and dual-core versions with AltiVec and up to 2 GB of DDR2 SRAM, the VPX6-185 Power Architecture SBC provides high performance VPX processing and a long list of features and I/O interfaces to satisfy the most demanding requirements of embedded computing.

The VPX6-185 is targeted at the challenging data and digital signal processing needs of tactical aircraft, armored vehicles and harsh environment naval systems. For retrofit and technology insertion applications, the VPX6-185 VPX SBC offers a superset of the I/O features of earlier generations of Curtiss-Wright VME 18x SBCs.
