SAN DIEGO, 13 Jan. 2011. Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing (CWCEC) in San Diego is introducing the rugged MPMC-9341 four-slot OpenVPX-based multi-platform mission computer for aerospace and defense applications ranging from benign laboratory to deployed military avionics and vetronics environments.
Developed by CWCEC's Embedded Systems group in San Diego, the MPMC-9341 rugged computer has a built-in power supply and four 3U VPX system slots that can be configured to accommodate as many as four single-board computers for high-performance multi-processing applications, or as a mix of embedded computers and I/O modules.
The MPMC-9341 It has a rugged enclosure designed to the meet MIL-STD-810 for environmental conditions, MIL-STD-461 for EMI, and MIL-STD-704 for power. Its enclosure measures 600 cubic inches yet is able to operate and survive external air temperatures as hot as 55 degrees Celsius using only natural convection, which enables system designers to avoid fans, coldplates, vehicle-supplied air, liquid, or other demands from the vehicle.
