AFT cools high-power COTS modules for military applications - Story

September 04, 2012
Open-standard Air Flow Through (AFT) cooling technology is a welcome addition to the options available to designers of rugged COTS systems for defense and aerospace applications. Northrop Grumman's AFT technology, incorporated in the ANSI/VITA 48.5-2010 standard, provides a cost-effective way to cool high-performance VPX boards used in C4ISR applications.

Digital video and GbE backbones keep pace with video sensor proliferation - Story

September 04, 2012
The use of legacy analog and newer digital multispectral, daylight, infrared, and HD video sensors continues to proliferate at a rapid rate on military platforms such as ground vehicles.

VME-194 Freescale QorIQ P2020 - Eletter Product

September 01, 2012
The VME-194 is designed for applications where low power with dual-core performance is a requirement. With two 64-bit PMC and XMC sites, a large complement of I/O capability such as gigabit Ethernet, up to six serial, SATA, 1553 and USB 2.0 ports, the VME-194 can satisfy the most demanding requirements of embedded computing applications.

HPEC Vanguard: New tools for complex algorithms - Blog

August 28, 2012
Arthur C. Clarke famously made the observation that “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” In the radar and signal intelligence world, corps of Ph.Ds are regularly developing mathematically complex algorithms that require significantly more processing power than can be deployed in a contemporary embedded COTS system. These algorithms must sit gathering dust in a drawer until Moore’s Law has driven performance densities sufficiently to enable the needed compute power for that class of algorithm. When any given class of applications is made possible, more demanding algorithms follow in their wake. This way of understanding our market highlights the fact that there are two types of applications that embedded military and aerospace system designers typically confront.

3U VPX poised to serve small UAVS - Story

July 27, 2012
As the DoD takes advantage of reductions in SWaP, smaller enclosures, such as 3U VPX, are reaping the benefit. However, today's 3U VPX backplane topologies will need to be retrofitted to fully capitalize on modern processing capabilities.
