CHAMP-AV9 6U OpenVPX Intel Core i7 4th Gen DSP Processor

July 10, 2013
The CHAMP-AV9 combines the floating point performance of the latest Intel Core i7 processors, with the substantial bandwidth and system-enabling features of the 6U OpenVPX form-factor. Providing a pair of quad-core 4th generation Core-i7 (Haswell) processors, featuring the updated AVX 2.0 instruction units and redesigned on-chip graphics execution units, the CHAMP-AV9 offers a 2-4X performance per size, weight and power improvement over previous DSP modules. A dual-channel 25 GB/s (each) DDR3 memory per CPU provides ample bandwidth to simultaneously serve CPU access and streaming I/O from the VPX backplane interfaces.
