Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing (CWCEC) has released the Multi-Platform Mission Computer 9341 (MPMC-9341), a compact, natural convection-cooled rugged 4-slot OpenVPX system which can be configured to meet the needs of any military or aerospace requirements, from benign laboratory to harsh deployed ground vehicle environments.
The MPMC-9341 features a built-in power supply and four 3U OpenVPX system slots that can be configured to accommodate up to four single board computers for high performance multi-processing applications, or as a mix of SBCs and I/O modules to handle specific program I/O requirements.
The MPMC-9341 uses advanced packaging techniques to provide the processing power of up to 4 SBCs in a rugged enclosure that measures a compact 600 cubic inches yet is able to operate and survive external air temperatures of 55°C using only natural convection. Then, system designers can implement and deploy a highly capable processing system without the need for fans, coldplates, vehicle supplied air, liquid or other demands from the vehicle.
The MPMC-9341 features a rugged enclosure designed to the meet military specifications including MIL-STD-810 for environmental conditions, MIL-STD-461 for EMI, and MIL-STD-704 for power. This rugged computing system is designed to fill multiple roles in air and land vehicles.
