Carrier cards are truly representative of open, modular computing. As their name suggests, they allow the designer to expand system

capabilities by simply plugging in a card that “carries” another module into the system.

FPGA Processors

The use of FPGAs has revolutionized the way DSP subsystems are configured. With a large number of gates, hardware multipliers and

high-speed serial interfaces, an FPGA can outperform a microprocessor by a factor of ten or more. FPGAs are applicable to a variety

of applications including radar, signal intelligence and image processing that have elements of computing that are characterized

by repetitive fixed-point processing that can be expressed in highly parallel form. FFTs, pulse compression, filters, and digital down

converters are examples of functions that FPGAs perform well. In deployed systems, this technical advantage translates to smaller,

lower-power and lower-cost systems.

FusionXF

FusionXF is a tool chain for use with the majority of Curtiss-Wright FPGA products. FusionXF provides a

tool kit of HDL and software components to simplify and accelerate FPGA code development and includes

components such as data streaming between FPGAs, DMA controllers, multiplexed data communications

and memory controllers. When connected to CPUs and operating systems, FusionXF provides a driver

fabric such that any IP function, such as user application code, can easily be associated with one or

more drivers, so no custom driver development is required. This makes integrating FPGA code within a

multi-FPGA and CPU environment straight forward.

Buffer Memory Nodes

In signal processing and data acquisition systems, buffer memory nodes are used to rate buffer real-time data streams. Rate buffering

can involve staging data prior to processing by a distributed multi-computer, rate buffering post processed data before sending it to

slower, persistent storage, or capturing data in applications requiring real-time snap shots. Other common implementations involve

serving as a central database for compute nodes or providing a canvas for imaging applications to reconstruct post-processed data.

Curtiss-Wright offers a range of buffer memory products for VPX, XMC and PMC.

SMS Rugged Network Switches

Ready to deploy, our rugged network switches allow systems integrators to reduce development costs and Time-To-Integration (TTI) by

simply connecting our switch with their subsystem, connecting the appropriate Ethernet ports, and focusing on the optimal partitioning

and segmentation of their application’s network. It’s a completely integrated and unified management, control and data lane solution

for wire-speed performance of switched Gigabit Ethernet traffic, allowing systems integrators to develop and deploy the latest

switched-fabric based architectures.

Ground Penetrating Radar

The high resolution imaging capabilities of the 3d-Radar system

make it unique for applications such as detection of landmines,

UXO (UneXploded Ordnance) and IEDs (Improvised Explosive

Devices).

Anti Tank mines with low metal content give strong reflections and

appear as bright features in the radar images while AP plastic

mines are more difficult to detect. Metallic targets such as shells

and other UXO give strong reflections, and the high resolution of

the radar images makes it possible to recognize the shape and

orientation of these targets.

Surveillance Systems

Curtiss-Wright’s Video Management System (VMS) offers complete surveillance solutions for rotary and fixed wing aircraft. VMS

includes rugged displays, video distribution and recording equipment that are scalable, highly interoperable and easy to install

and reconfigure. VMS has been successfully fielded in a wide range of demanding applications, including SAR and border patrol

operations. In the UK, London’s Metropolitan Police Air Support Unit relies on VMS. In Australia, airborne surveillance units deploy

VMS on both fixed and rotary wing aircraft.

A fully integrated system, VMS uses touch-screen technology to enable pilots and observers to independently select, view and record

images – with no signal loss – from multiple camera and sensors. In addition, video transmission downlink via microwave is available.

Ruggedization

Curtiss-Wright specializes in products that are deployed in harsh environments typical of military and aerospace applications. In this

rugged domain, our experience and expertise are unmatched by any COTS vendor.

Packaging for Performance

Deployment demands reliability as well as the more usual COTS

product attributes of high-performance, rich functionality and

affordability. Curtiss-Wright invests heavily in research into

advanced packaging techniques, including materials technology

and advanced cooling such as heat pipes, evaporative, immersion,

liquid and air flow-through.

Rugged and Reliable

Our design philosophy is to use commercially available

components best suited to the design requirement, for extremes of

temperature, high levels of shock and vibration, and environmental

hazards. Where possible, we use industrial temperature rated

components for our Level 100 and 200 products. Military

qualified components are often not available for many of the

advanced, high-performance functions demanded by modern

military systems. Commercial components are typically only

characterized by manufacturers for their volume markets. At

the same time, many of these components have inherent design

margins well-suited for use in harsher environments and these are

selected for preference. Curtiss-Wright has developed rigorous

procedures including construction analysis, temperature cycling

and vibration testing to ensure that all parts meet our exact needs.

Newly manufactured products at our state-of-the-art facility

undergo full functional testing. At this point they then go through

an Environmental Stress Screen (ESS) running functional test

software. Hot and cold starts and variations of supply voltage

are applied, in order to detect early component failures or

manufacturing defects.

For more information regarding our industry-leading reliability

standards for software quality, thermal and mechanical design

and solder joint reliability, consult a Curtiss-Wright representative.

The following ruggedization specifications express the minimum capability of our products. Curtiss-Wright follows a conservative

practice of specifying for worst-case thermal scenarios. Refer to individual product specifications or a Curtiss-Wright representative

for detailed information and expert guidance. These levels of ruggedization are provided as a guideline, and individual products

might have a slight variation in each range. Not all products support all levels. Refer to individual product data sheets for availability.

Open Architecture-Based Solutions

Curtiss-Wright is actively leading VITA working groups defining next generation technology.

VPX (VITA 46)

An ANSI standard which breaks out from the traditional connector

scheme of VMEbus to merge the latest in connector and packaging

technology with the latest in bus and serial fabric technology.

Technologies called for in VPX include:

• Both 3U and 6U formats

• New 7-row high-speed connector rated up to 6.25 Gbps

• Choice of high-speed serial fabrics

• PMC and XMC (VITA 42) mezzanines

• Hybrid backplanes to accommodate VME64, VXS and VPX

boards

OpenVPX (VITA 65)

The is the name adopted by a group of companies that joined

together in April 2009 to tackle the issue of a VITA 46/VPX system

specification. The OpenVPX specification defines an architecture

that manages and constrains module and backplane designs, and

sets interoperability points while maintaining full compliance with

VPX.

FMC (FPGA Mezzanine Card/VITA 57)

CAPABILITIES

VPX REDI (VITA 48)

The Ruggedized Enhanced Design Implementation (REDI) laid out

in VITA 48 describes how to implement layout techniques to better

support cooling methodologies on specific board form factors.

Currently, it covers enhanced forced air-cooling, advanced

conduction-cooling and liquid-cooling. It also addresses the use

of ESD covers on both sides of the board, a necessary feature for

military two-level maintenance strategies.

VXS

The standard for I/O mezzanine modules that work closely with

FPGA processors. FMCs provide a rugged I/O platform with

high-speed signaling directly to FPGA processors on host cards.

FMCs:

• Minimize latency

• Minimize system costs

• Maximize data through-put

• Reduce the complexity of FPGA designs

• Reduce system overhead

XMC (VITA 42.0-2005)

Defines an open standard for supporting high-speed, switched

interconnect protocols on PCI Mezzanine Cards (PMC). Supported

protocols for XMC form factors include parallel RapidIO ® ,

Serial RapidIO (sRIO), PCI Express ® (PCIe), Hypertransport and

Aurora.

VXS is an evolution of VME which preserves VMEbus P1/P2

connectivity, but introduces an alternative P0 connecter designed

for multi-Gb/s serial data communications for higher bandwidth

data flow. VXS also introduces serial fabric switches when

required. VXS is an ANSI standard.

• 6U payload and switch format

• Preserves VME64 connectivity and connectors

• 16 HSS backplane links (8x full duplex)

Line Replaceable Modules (LRM)

In recent years, an improved approach toward battlefield maintenance has emerged employing Line Replaceable Modules (LRM)

to speed, simplify and significantly lower the cost of system repair. At Curtiss-Wright, we’re helping to drive the move toward LRM

maintenance through our leadership role in bringing rugged, ESD (electro-static discharge)-protected VPX modules to the embedded

COTS market.

The innovative LRM approach promises to greatly reduce the logistics burden by allowing modules such as pluggable processing and

I/O boards to be removed and replaced directly at the platform. This eliminates the traditional step of first removing the system-level

“black box” and sending it back to a depot for the eventual replacement of a pluggable circuit board. By designing a system around

the concept of LRMs, and holding spares at the LRM level instead of at the box level, the cost, volume, and weight of spares holdings

can be reduced.

6U and 3U LRMs

Size, Weight and Power

As the Department of Defense moves to the Network-Centric Operations of the 21st century battlefield, networking capabilities must

be integrated into current battlefield vehicles. These new network-enabled systems bring size, weight, power and cooling (SWaP-C)

demands that most of the existing platforms are not currently equipped to address. Therefore, in addition to incorporating new

capabilities into the current force, much of the existing electronics within current systems must be upgraded to make room for these new

capabilities, while improving performance and reducing life cycle cost. Solutions optimized for SWaP, in addition to Performance,

Cooling and Cost (SWaP2-C2) are required for the network-enabled platforms of tomorrow.

To realize the DoD’s vision of a ubiquitous network-centric battlefield, where the war fighter is connected to critical data in real time,

Curtiss-Wright has begun to deliver innovative open standards-based rugged application servers, high-speed switches and router

modules. These battlefield-ready networking devices need to enable and optimize connectivity in extremely harsh environments. Their

modules need to be rugged and based on small form-factor architectures, in order to survive in harsh, space constrained environments

with extremes of cold, heat, shock and vibration, while meeting the SWaP2-C2 constraints of legacy platforms.

Lead-Free Leadership

Curtiss-Wright is proud of its leadership role in offering lead-free assemblies on selected strategic product lines. These products have

been designed, tested and built using the company’s extensive lead-free knowledge base and have been implemented using advanced

approaches to reduce lead-free risk, so our customers may remain confident in meeting their rugged reliability requirements.

The introduction of lead-free components and assemblies into

aerospace and defense systems poses a substantial reliability

risk unless proper measures are taken. To meet this challenge,

over the last several years Curtiss-Wright has worked diligently

to develop an expansive lead-free knowledge base. This leadfree

expertise includes connections to leading edge lead-free

research, standards and policy establishments, such as the PERM

(Pb-free Electronics Risk Management) consortium. We have taken

specific measures to optimize the use of lead-free components in

rugged COTS products, including detailed analysis of the various

reliability risks and the implementation of effective mitigations

against these risks.

Most of our products continue to be produced using tin-lead

solder, with its known heritage reliability. The determination of

whether or not a product is produced as lead-free must be made

through careful consideration of critical factors like cost, lead time

and reliability. If required, our lead-free products can be offered

as tin-lead versions.

To maintain and enhance its leadership position in bringing leadfree

technology to the embedded COTS market, Curtiss-Wright

will continue to perform research and testing of new approaches

for dealing with lead-free, and will continue its involvement in

industry activities to leverage leading edge knowledge.
