VPX (also known as VITA 46) is the next generation of ruggedized compact embedded systems. After years of VME systems dominating the military/aerospace field, users have finally reached the limit of available bandwidth on the VMEbus. VPX expands the possible bandwidth, compared to the traditional VME system, by replacing the parallel bus with high speed serial busses.
Much as the desktop market is transitioning from PCI to PCIe, the VME standard has been transformed to embrace the new VPX standards.
The serial busses offer higher data rates while using a fraction of routing resources. This allows the new VPX standard to focus more physical backplane resources on improving other design aspects such as supporting larger power draw and more User I/O.
Acromag's rugged VPX modules and VPX carriers are designed for COTS applications and offer extensive I/O support.
Acromag's AcroExpress® single board computers are economical and offer air or conduction-cooled boards. AcroExpress Single Board Computers feature Intel® Xeon® Processors in 3U and 6U formats.
OpenVPX carriers suport AcroPack®, Mini PCIe, XMC or PMC mezzanine modules provide a simple and cost-effective solutions for interfacing to a VPX computer system.
