Carlo Gavazzi Computing Solutions in Brockton, Mass., is introducing a VITA 41 VME Switched Serial (VXS) switched-fabric backplane for military and aerospace applications. The VXS backplane enables users to integrate a high-performance upgrade to the latest VITA standards while still supporting the legacy capability of the VME 64x bus structure. The company’s VXS backplane retrofit capabilities help achieve fast data-transfer rates without the cost of adopting VPX technology. It is designed to be customized for each embedded development, testing, or measurement application. For more information, contact Carlo Gavazzi online at www.gavazzi-computing.com.
