Curtiss-Wright's Defense Solutions has announced its first quad-core, 5th generation, Intel Core i7 (Broadwell) processor-based, small form factor (SFF), modular mission computer, the Parvus DuraCOR 80-42. The DuraCOR 80-42 features an integrated Intel Iris Pro Graphics GPU to support OpenGL-based graphics-intensive applications. It also supports OpenCL on the 40-core GPU, providing up to 640 GFLOPS of performance for data processing-intensive applications. Its powerful Advanced Vector Extensions accelerate math-intensive algorithms.

The highly rugged mission computer supports the full -40 to +71 degrees C military operating temperature range without active cooling or moving parts such as fans. The DuraCOR 80-42 is designed to meet extensive qualification testing, including MIL-STD- 810G, MIL-STD-461G, MIL-STD-1275D, MIL-STD-704F and RTCA/DO-160G conditions for environmental, and power (thermal, shock, vibration, dust, water, humidity, altitude, power spikes/surges,).

The unit's test regimen also includes expanded conducted/radiated emissions and susceptibility EMI qualification testing, including CS114, CS115 and CS116, to pre-validate the design and reduce risk. For demanding aircraft power transfer requirements, the unit also supports 50 ms power hold-up under MIL-STD-704 and 200 ms for DO-160. For enhanced reliability, the unit adds comprehensive built-in-test (BIT) self-diagnostics for critical failure identification and can support N+1 failover power supply redundancy requirements for mission critical applications.
