Approval of new VITA Standard
The VITA 91 working group has completed the draft and has voted to take this draft through to the VITA public review approval process for eventual ANSI approval.
Consensus body registration for voting for VITA approval of the following draft standard for the approval process is now open:
DRAFT/VITA 91.0-202x - Connector for Higher Density VPX Applications
Abstract: This standard, VITA 91.0 Connector for Higher Density VPX, provides a higher density and higher speed alternative connector to the one specified in the VITA 46.0 VPX Baseline Standard. Because the 46.0 and the 91.0 connectors are not intermateable, a VITA 91.0 plug-in module will not plug into a VITA 46.0 backplane and vice versa..
