OpenVPX combines the power of the latest technology with an open and interoperable standard backed by the VITA Standards Organization.
Supporting the proven 3U and 6U form factors and the popular PMC and XMC expansion options, OpenVPX provides a migration path from VME, VXS, VPX and similar backplane-based standards into cutting-edge technology.
OpenVPX provides high speed, serial fabrics supporting flexible topologies (Central Switch, Distributed, Root-leaf), with link aggregation and compatibility with multiple protocols.
The networking capability of OpenVPX is designed to sustain the current and future bandwidth and latency requirements of multicore CPUs and the needs of the most sophisticated applications.
In addition to outstanding features, OpenVPX products offer exceptional reliability even in the most demanding operating conditions: the VPX Ruggedized Enhanced Design Implementation (VPX REDI) that is part of VITA 48 sets the directives on the implementation of cooling methodologies, including convention, conduction and even high performance liquid cooling.
VPX REDI also covers the ESD design requirements needed to provide Two-Level Maintenance, the modern approach to improving repair turnaround time, simplify maintenance logistics and to achieving impressive overall financial savings.
