In recent years, significant efforts have resulted in bringing open standards to the forefront of next-gen designs to meet the Modular Open Standards Approach (MOSA) initiatives.
As work to bring open standards architectures such as OpenVPX to the SOSA Technical Reference standard 1.0, for multi-mission defense platforms it has become clear that there is a need for smaller form factors than 3U VPX to address severe SWaP constraints and yet maintains scalability and interoperability that OpenVPX and SOSA provide.
This webcast examines two such smaller form factor open standards initiatives that are being discussed in both the VITA trade association as well as the SOSA Consortium – VITA 74 VNX/VITA 90 VNX+ and Short VPX. The speakers discuss the ramifications of designing ever-smaller platforms while trying to meet increasingly greater power and cooling demands of high -performance processors. Considerations for signal integrity and aperture ramifications as well as examples of applications that can benefit will be addressed.
