OpenVPX Single Board Computers (SBCs) & Carrier Cards

Single board computers (SBCs) and carrier cards are two types of components that are commonly used in OpenVPX systems. SBCs are self-contained computer boards that can be used as the main processor in a computing system, while carrier cards are used to interface other types of I/O modules, such as AcroPack, PMC, or XMC modules, to a VPX computer system.

These types of products are often used in applications where high-performance computing and high-speed I/O are required, such as in defense and aerospace systems, scientific research, and other demanding environments. They offer a flexible and scalable solution for building custom computing systems that can be tailored to meet the specific needs of the application.

Acromag VPX products are designed for COTS applications. High performance 3U or 6U single board computers feature air or conduction-cooled options.  VPX carrier cards provide a simple and cost-effective solution for interfacing mezzanine I/O modules to a VPX computer system.

The AcroExpress® 3U and 6U SBC modules can support either one or two DDR4 ECC SODIMMs, for a total of up to 32GB. The SODIMMs are firmly attached to the module with screws and surrounded by heat sink material to provide a mechanically and thermally robust mechanism. Extended temperature models are available for operating in a -40°C to +85°C range.

They contain two M.2 expansion card slots to provide on-board storage capabilities. The M.2 slots support the use of SATA III and PCIe Gen. 3 storage drives.

The VPX6860 6U SBC supports an XMC mezzanine module, with up to a x8 Gen3 PCIe interface. It also supports one AcroPack or mini-PCIe module.

Acromag’s 3U and 6U OpenVPX™ carrier cards for VPX, XMC or PMC mezzanine modules are also designed for COTS applications. These carrier cards feature a high-speed PCI Express interface making them ideal for high-performance aerospace, defense, and scientific research.
