Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions introduced the embedded industry’s first 16-core Arm processor-based 3U OpenVPX™ single board computer (SBC) with advanced security features. One of the biggest challenges facing rugged system designers today is how best to deploy as much compute power as possible while selecting the smallest, least power-hungry architecture and providing protection for critical mission data against malicious cyber attacks and reverse engineering. The new VPX3-1707 processor module meets this design challenge head-on with Arm’s exceptional performance-per-watt functionality and support for Curtiss-Wright’s TrustedCOTS™ Enhanced Trusted Boot features, including NXP Secure Boot and Arm TrustZone, along with a security FPGA allowing customer extensibility and customization. Software support for the VPX3-1707 will include Wind River® VxWorks® 7, along with Curtiss-Wright’s U-Boot firmware, providing a comprehensive suite of system debug, exerciser, and update functions, BIT, and non-volatile memory sanitization.
