VITA to update OpenVPX Architectural Framework Specification for new usage models

VITA

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., 23 May 2012. VITA, the trade association for standard computing architectures serving critical embedded systems industries, announces the ratification by ANSI of the second edition of the OpenVPX system specification under ANSI/VITA 65.0-2012.


Itis a planned update to the architecture framework that defines system-level VPX interoperability for multivendor, multi-module, integrated system environments. This release adds profiles for payload, peripheral, and switch slots, plus profiles for backplanes to accommodate the InfiniBand protocol and the VITA 67 coaxial connector type.

The VITA 65 working group is reviewing profile candidates for inclusion in the OpenVPX specification as part of their mission to support it as a living document that adapts to changing technology. The working group also clarified and reorganized several existing sections to improve consistency and usability of the specification.

VPX systems are expected to be deployed in signal and video processing, radar, communications, transportation, and control and management. As new applications for VPX emerge, new requirements sometimes mean that new profiles must be defined to help guide the interoperability points necessary for integrating module to module, module to backplane, and chassis. OpenVPX will continue to evolve and incorporate new fabric, connector, and system technologies.
