OKLAHOMA CITY – The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) in New York has ratified the VITA 46.0-2019 VPX baseline standard for critical embedded computing. ANSI/VITA 46.0-2019 has completed the VITA and ANSI processes reaching full recognition under guidance of VITA, according to Military & Aerospace Electronics. Continue reading original article

The Intelligent Aerospace take:

October 8, 2019 - The ANSI/VITA 65.x architecture framework standards define system-level VPX interoperability for multi-vendor, multi-module, integrated system environments. Several other related standards add capability to VPX. Additional work is underway to improve the data rate of VPX to 25 gigabits per second.

The VITA/ANSI process requires that every active standard be reviewed every five years. The VITA 46 VPX working group started work in March 2003, ratifying a baseline VPX standard in 2007, and revised in 2013.
