This 12-slot 3U OpenVPX backplane (12 payload +2 power supply slots) supports the defense industry’s h/w and s/w convergence initiatives for modular architecture. It is an integration platform for system designs conforming to the DoD’s CMOSS (C4ISR Modular Open Suite of Standards). The backplane includes VPX / SOSA (Sensor Open Standards Architecture) slot profiles for SOSA module testing and integration. It enables the development of complex, high speed signal processing systems with the latest fiber and RF connectivity as well as precision radial network timing plus slot profiles for SBCs, switches, radial clock(s) and expansion. It supports short development cycles and fast time to market for complex systems. Developers can deploy the backplane in its entirety or in part by working with Elma to identify your optimal configuration.
