The OpenVPX Industry Working Group, made up of companies within the VME embedded computing industry, came together last year to suggest system interoperability guidelines for the VPX (VITA 46) high-speed embedded computer switch fabric. The OpenVPX V1.0 Specification was completed on schedule last fall has now moved into the VITA 65 working group. The OpenVPX and VITA 65 groups are trying to resolve interoperability conflicts that have made it difficult for lead systems integrators to make VPX components from different vendors work easily together. This webcast with industry experts will discuss the OpenVPX Specification, how to get started with OpenVPX, how OpenVPX applies to military systems, and more.
The webcast is sponsored by Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing, GE Intelligent Platforms, Mercury Computer Systems, and SIE Computing Solutions.
