Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions announced a significant performance breakthrough in the design of compute intensive High Performance Embedded Computing (HPEC) systems for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) applications based on the Wind River® VxWorks® real-time operating system (RTOS). New software drivers, included in Curtiss-Wright’s latest Board Support Package (BSP) for use with its Intel® Xeon® D processor-based CHAMP-XD1 3U OpenVPX™ and CHAMP-XD2 6U OpenVPX DSP modules, uniquely enable VxWorks to access the Intel Xeon D processor’s QuickData Technology DMA engine, freeing the multi-core processor from devoting critical resources to communications handling. In addition, the new VxWorks BSP enables the industry’s first support for Mellanox® Ethernet Controllers.
