System Architectures

Setting new standards in standard architectures.

Tracewell has extensive experience designing and manufacturing systems based on standard architectures including VPX, VXS, VME, VME64x, VXI, ATCA, MicroTCA, and CPCI.  The Tracewell System Architecture (SA) products, based on standard, commercial technologies can be used in a wide variety of commercial and military applications including: battlefield command & control systems, ground and flight sensor control systems, vehicle navigation controls, and medical imaging devices.

Tracewell has designed the SA products to minimize size and weight, while maximizing performance.  A rugged design of aluminum and steel provides structural strength, without adding excessive weight. These products are also designed to maintain optimal power and cooling conditions inside the chassis.  With 40 years experience in bus architecture design, the Tracewell System Architecture products can integrate multiple bus architectures onto one chassis to deliver greater speed and performance.   These advanced architectures deliver a smaller, lighter and more cost-efficient computing footprint.
