    VITA is accepting registrations to be a member of a public review VITA Consensus Body for voting on move this reaffirmed standard to ANSI Stabilized Maintenance. 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: November 7, 2022

    Stabilized Maintenance of Existing Standard

    Under ANSI rules after 5 years of a standard being reaffirmed, a standard may enter a 10-year stabilized maintenance period. There have been no requests for revision or errata for this standard in question, hence it is recommended that it be maintained in stabilized maintenance state.

    Voter registration for voting for ANSI recognition of the following standards for the stabilized maintenance (SM) process is now open.

    ANSI/VITA 48.5-2010 (R2017): Mechanical Standard for Electronic Plug-in units Using Air Flow Through Cooling

    Abstract: This standard establishes the design requirements for an air-flow-through cooled plug-in unit with a form factor as close to 6U as possible while retaining the VITA 46 connector layout. Unlike ANSI/VITA 48.1, which uses cooling air impinged directly upon the components and circuit boards, this plug-in unit uses a compact core heat exchanger located within the central heat sink of the unit.

    How to Apply for the Consensus Body

    Currently, this consensus body needs voting members from the following interest categories in order to be able to proceed with this process. The consensus body will be vetted to ensure it meets balance, lack of dominance and openness rules. Following which a formal ballot will be sent to the consensus body for voting.

    • Producer: An appropriate participant designs, develops, or manufactures products using this standard.
    • User-Industrial/Commercial: An appropriate participant is using this standard in an industrial or commercial application
    • User-Government/Military: An appropriate participant is a representative of a government agency using this standard in a government or military application.
    • Research: An appropriate participant is involved in research or consulting that may use this standard.
    • General Interest: An appropriate participant is an interested party not necessarily involved in producing, directly using, or acquiring product using this standard.

    Please note that company membership in VITA is NOT a requirement to join this consensus body. This registration is open to both VITA members and non-members. You must register via this form if you wish to participate in the upcoming ballot. There is no fee to join this consensus body.

    In the case that you believe this standard needs a revision, please indicate so in the comments field of the registration form and be prepared to sponsor and actively participate in the revision effort. If you are selected for the consensus body, you may provide minor editorial comments during the balloting.

    Please register ONLY IF you intend to vote. The ballot will be voided if we do not get enough returned votes.

    ANSI/VITA 49.2-2017 - VITA Radio Transport (VRT) Standard for Electromagnetic Spectrum: Signals and Applications

    Abstract: The ANSI/VITA 49.2 standard, which is part of the VITA Radio Transport (VRT) family of standards, defines a signal/spectrum protocol that expresses spectrum observation, spectrum operations, and capabilities of RF devices. This is done independent of manufacturer, equipment type, point of use in an architecture and application. The intent of the VRT protocol is to enable RF systems to migrate from proprietary stove-pipe architectures to interoperable multi-function architectures.

    This standard has been revised; hence it has been put forth for approval of the revisions.

    DRAFT/VITA 48.8-2022x: Mechanical Standard for Electronic VPX Plug-in Modules Using Air Flow Through Cooling Standard

    AbstractThis document describes an open standard for the design requirements for an air-flow-through cooled plug-in module having 3U and 6U form factors while retaining the VITA 46.0 connector layout. Unlike using cooling air impinged directly upon the components and circuit boards, this plug-in module uses a finned heat exchanger frame located within the central section of the assembly to top cool primary circuit board components as well as mezzanine board components. Both 3U and 6U standard form factors are offered using 3 defined pitch spacings, with options to have alternate air flow intake and exhaust paths. The plug-in modules of this standard exhibit a weight reduction and cost savings by eliminating both wedge retainer usage and module lever usage by way of using light weight jack screws for plug-in module insertion and extraction into a subrack chassis. The intention of this standard is to optimize SWAP-C (Size, Weight, Power, Cost).

    This revision of the standard updates the plug-in module in the following areas: tab dimensions, thickness, jackscrew, and additional screw. Also, the option for insertion/extraction levers has been removed.
