The CHAMP-FX4 Signal Processing Engine is the flagship 6U product in Curtiss-Wright of user-programmable Xilinx® Virtex®-7 FPGA-based computing products, designed to meet the needs of challenging embedded high-performance digital signal and image processing applications. The CHAMP-FX4 Signal Processing Engine combines the dense processing resources of three large Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGAs with over 12 GB of memory resources, all on a rugged 6U OpenVPX™ (VITA 65) form factor module. A Xilinx ZYNQ FPGA with embedded dual ARM Cortex A9 processors provides powerful command and control capability in a compact footprint.

The CHAMP-FX4 is part of the Curtiss-Wright Fabric40TM approach to integrating the latest high-speed 40 Gbps fabrics into high-performance radar processing, SIGINT, image processing and other EW systems that cannot afford to compromise on performance.
