VITA is accepting registrations to be a member of a public review Consensus Body for voting to revise these standards. You do not have to be a VITA member to participate in this Consensus Body. The response deadline to register for this consensus body is: July 19, 2021


Under ANSI and VITA rules every 5 years an approved standard must be reaffirmed, revised, placed in stabilized maintenance or withdrawn. These standards have been revised, hence they have been put forth for approval of the revisions.

ANSI/VITA 65.0-2019: OpenVPX System Standard

AbstractThe OpenVPX System Standard was created to bring versatile system architectural solutions to the VPX market. Based on the extremely flexible VPX family of standards, the OpenVPX standard uses Plug-In Module mechanical, connectors, thermal, communications protocols, utility, and power definitions provided by specific VITA standards to define a series of Slot, Backplane, Module, and Standard Development Chassis Profiles. This edition adds additional Slot, Backplane, and Module Profiles. Adds use of VITA 46.30 and VITA 46.31 connectors. Adds additional Connector Modules (as tables in VITA 65.1). Adds additional protocols. Makes some other improvements.

ANSI/VITA 65.1-2019: OpenVPX System Standard - Profile Tables

AbstractThis standard documents variations of Slot, Backplane, and Modules Profiles. As part of the Slot Profile Description, there are also some Connector Modules defined. This document is primarily tables which are referenced by VITA 65.0.

Stakeholders: Anyone building or using VPX boards or systems.
