FREMONT, Calif., 23 June 2015. Elma Electronic Inc. in Fremont, Calif., is introducing a 3U 3-slot OpenVPX embedded computing backplane for either optical or RF implementations for mission management, navigation, avionics systems, industrial monitoring, night-vision systems, shipboard electronics, target tracking, and HD displays.

Designed to meet VITA 65, the backplane is useful in environments that require various slot-to-slot optical or RF interconnects or that require optical or RF I/O together with a high speed data plane connection to slot 1.

Slots 2 and 3 of the embedded computing backplane will accept a VITA 66.4 optical module or, alternatively, a VITA 67.1 4-cavity RF module. Slot 1 is for a conventional 3U VPX module and has dedicated Fat Pipe connections to both slots 2 and 3. The data planes support 6.25 gigabits per second per lane or 25 gigabytes per second per Fat Pipe.

This newest addition to Elma's VPX backplane line is for integrated applications that require slots with optical or RF connectivity together with high speed connections to a processor slot.

The optical ferrules of the backplane support 12 or 24 discrete fibers or equivalent fiber ribbons for cost termination.

Available coaxial contacts support flexible, semi-rigid or rigid RF cabling to meet a variety of data processing, EMI shielding and infrastructure requirements. In addition, MultiGig compatible cables can be used with available accessories.
