The Curtiss Wright XMC-442 is a Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA-based XMC module (VITA 42) compute engine. The XMC-442 is designed for demanding, high-performance signal and image processing applications including radar, sonar, and signal intelligence. It features the Virtex-5 SXT, the largest, highest-performance DSP-focused FPGA available from Xilinx.
The XMC-442 provides systems integrators with a powerful FPGA-based computing engine for I/O or sensor processing or algorithm acceleration. Combining the state-of-the-art Virtex-5 SXT processor from Xilinx with a rich array of memory and I/O, the XMC-442 offers designers a powerful, easy-to-use module for a wide range of applications in both benign and rugged environments. It significantly speeds the integration of high-performance FPGA-based custom calculation blocks onto embedded platforms that feature on-board XMC sites and enable system designers to get custom FPGA-based applications out to market faster.
The XMC-442 is designed to operate in rugged environments and is available in both air- and conduction-cooled formats. Innovative cooling techniques are employed to handle high performance FPGA implementations. This XMC daughtercard is optimized for deployment on a Curtiss-Wright CHAMP-FX2 FPGA VPX engine, but may also be used on a CHAMP-AV6, SVME-184, or VPX6-185 single-board computers.
The XMC-442 is available from Mistral Solutions Pvt. Ltd.
