Wednesday, November 08, 2023 3:43 PM | Dean Holman (Administrator)

VITA is accepting registrations to be a member of a public review VITA Consensus Body for voting to revise this standard. You do not have to be a VITA member to participate in this Consensus Body.  VITA members with active Workspace profiles should sign up in Workspace.

VITA Members can sign up for free (while logged into their account) while non-members must pay a nominal fee to participate. The response deadline to register for this consensus body is: November 22, 2023

Revision of Existing Standard

Under ANSI and VITA rules every 5 years an approved standard must be reaffirmed, revised, placed in stabilized maintenance or withdrawn. This standard has been revised; hence it has been put forth for approval of the revisions. The VITA 67.3 working group has completed the draft and has voted to take this draft through to the VITA public review approval process for eventual ANSI recognition.

Consensus body registration for voting to approve this revised standard is now open.

DRAFT/VITA 67.3-2023x - Coaxial Interconnect on VPX, Spring-Loaded Contact on Backplane

Abstract: This document describes an open standard for configuration and interconnect within the structure of VITA 67.0 enabling an interface compatible with VITA 46 containing multi-position blind mate analog connectors with coaxial contacts, having fixed contacts on the Plug-In Module and spring action on the backplane.  This revision adds 75-Ohm SMPM and 75-Ohm NanoRF contact interfaces to support video applications.
