Mistral Solutions has announced the availability of Curtiss Wright’s VPX6-187, a single-board computer based on Freescale’s eight-core QorIQ P4080 Communications Processor.

Harnessing the performance capabilities of the Freescale QorIQ P4080 communications processor, the VPX6-187 is suitable for a range of embedded military/aerospace applications.

The rugged 6U VPX general-purpose SBC supports its eight 1.5GHz Power Architecture processor cores with datapath acceleration logic, network and peripheral bus interfaces.

The VPX6-187 provides two PMC/XMC sites supporting the acquisition, processing, and distribution of high-speed sensor data such as video, radar, and sonar data.

The VPX backplane of the VPX6-187 supports connectivity via Gen2 PCIe and SRIO for multi-GB/sec board-to-board data communications.

By providing support for data, control and expansion-plane interconnects, the VPX6-187 can be used in centralised, distributed, or hybrid-switched backplane topologies.

It also supports four Gigabit Ethernet ports; USB; options for multi-function RS-232/422/485 serial ports; MIL-STD-1553; Serial ATA and TTL; and differential discretes that provide connectivity integration with other system elements without using up PMC/XMC sites.

The VPX6-187 is also supported by Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing’s CSA firmware, Wind River Vxworks and Linux Board Support Package and Driver Suites supporting both SMP and AMP operating modes, MIL-STD-1553 software driver, and other operating systems.

Offered in air- and conduction-cooled rugged configurations, the VPX6-187 is also available in a VPX-REDI (VITA 48) configuration.
