A new high-performance, low-power quad-core Intel Atom (“Bay Trail”) E3845-based XMC Processor Mezzanine single board computer (SBC) has a typical power consumption of only 15W. The rugged XMC-120 Atom SBC Processor Mezzanine Card from Curtiss-Wright speeds and eases the integration of exceptional x86 processing performance into size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C) constrained environments. The XMC-120 can be hosted on any 3U or 6U VPX module with an available VITA 42 XMC mezzanine site, such as an SBC, DSP processor, or VPX carrier card, to provide a single-slot compute solution. 

The XMC-120 is also available pre-integrated with the Cisco Systems 5921 Embedded Services Router (ESR) Software, enabling system designers to deploy a single-slot solution that combines both Cisco network routing and Intel multi-core processing. The module combines the ruggedization and upgrade advantages of the VITA 42 mezzanine standard with a small form factor SBC featuring a low-power footprint. The XMC-120 can also be used as a stand-alone board for applications, such as small UAV and robots, where a VPX carrier card is not required. 

The XMC-120 module’s Atom processor is supported with a wide range of I/O, including four  Ethernet ports and three display ports. Built on Intel’s Silvermont architecture and manufactured with tri-gate 22nm process technology, the Atom SoC was designed for use in extremely power-sensitive and mobile applications where higher levels of performance are required.
