Dedicated Interoperability Laboratory Debuts

Susan Wallace

A new laboratory will provide a centralized test center for rugged and commercial embedded computer boards. The Interoperability Laboratory has been created by Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing (CWCEC; Leesburg, VA; to help the company respond to increasing requirements for fully integrated building block solutions. The lab will offer a dedicated staff and resources to verify system component capability. It will serve as a resource center for CWCEC system integrators and the company’s industry partners seeking verification of component and software compatibility.

“The Lab will give CWCEC customers full confidence that our boards and subsystems play together, freeing them to focus on what they do best,” says Tom Quinly, the company’s president.

The newly launched lab will manage the company’s collective interoperability matrix. In addition to overseeing the interoperability testing and qualification of CWCEC’s own product line, the lab will also provide the resources and management for testing and qualification of third-party partner products.

“CWC-IL will take full advantage of Dayton’s central U.S.–based location, its proximity to six major universities, and its highly regarded technical support team,” says Quinly.
