The VPX980 is based on the VITA 46.11 specification that capitalizes on the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) and AdvancedTCA Specification as its architectural foundation.
The VadaTech chassis management solution is derived from the VadaTech ATCA shelf manager using core interfaces such as the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), Remote Management Control Protocol (RMCP), web interface, Scorpionware system management, and a command line interface.
The VPX980 supports the VITA 46.11 Tier-2 command set, providing functionality in the management layer and chassis cooling capabilities.
The chassis manager has taken advantage of HPM.1 PICMG specification providing a framework for upgrading the IPMC firmware. The module also has a 1000Base-TX via the front panel as well as Gigabit Ethernet going to P1 as 1000Base-BX.
The VPX980 has an option for JTAG Switch Module (JSM) and optional virtual probe, easing device access within the chassis for FPGA code developers.
The JTAG ports from each VPX module route to the P3/P4 to support 16 modules. JSM module is configured via the front or rear Gigabit Ethernet ports. The JSM also could function as a stand-alone module, which makes JTAG dongles unnecessary within the chassis.
