ASHBURN, Va. Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division, supplier of rugged open-standard solutions, has introduced the VPX6-1961, an 11th Generation Intel Core single-board computer (SBC) based on the Intel Xeon W (formerly Tiger Lake-H).

According to the company, the 6U OpenVPX module leverages Intel Core architectures to deliver eight core processing SBC for demanding aerospace and defense applications.

With more processor cores, system designers have the ability to reduce their platform’s size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C) by consolidating processing tasks, which would formerly require multiple SBCs, into a single slot.

The 11th Gen processor is also designed with Intel’s latest Gen 12 graphics engine, providing up to three 4K display interfaces. The 11th Gen Intel Core also provides accelerated artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) processing and is intended to double the floating-point performance for accelerating math-intensive applications.

The company claims that the VPX6-1961 is ideal for demanding mission computing and virtualization applications in deployed environments.
