» 3U VPX «
VPX systems implement 3U and 6U board computing and offer enormous bandwidth potential on the backplane thanks to a new multigig connector.
PCIe, GETH traffic on the VPX backplane can be found today. Soon VPX will also include 10GETH, RapidIO, and high speed inter FPGA I/Os.
Kontron offers the essential building blocs to create efficient and economical VPX embedded computers.
VPX specifications have been focused at the board level, but there is also a need for considering system-level requirements to improve interoperability and reduce customization, testing, cost, and risk.
The OpenVPX Systems Specification (VITA 65) defines an architecture framework that manages and constrains module and backplane designs, including defining pin outs, and sets interoperability points within VPX while maintaining full compliance with VPX.
