ADP | Avionics Development Platform for 3U VPX modules

Jan. 9, 2013
The ADP is a low-cost, flexible, 3U OpenVPX™ avionics system development platform. It includes standard interfaces found in avionics applications, such as MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, MIL-STD-188-203-1A (ATDS), and 28 V avionics GPIO. Complementing the I/O interfaces is a rich set of CPU options to meet any performance or power requirement. The ADP leverages COTS chassis, backplanes, power supplies, and RTMs along with conduction-cooled 3U VPX payload modules. The payload modules in the ADP are the same conduction-cooled modules that will go into the deployed avionics system.Leveraging COTS chassis, backplanes, power supplies, and RTMs in the development platform enables software development to start quickly. In addition, the development of the deployed system custom hardware components (e.g. ATR chassis, backplane, and power supply), can be done in parallel while software development is progressing on the ADP.The ADP is shipped with Linux, device drivers for all X-ES and third-party boards, and a full suite of tests demonstrating interface functionality. By providing an integrated, tested solution ready for immediate development, the ADP significantly reduces development schedule risk and increases the Test Readiness Level (TRL) of the final deployed system.X-ES can perform hardware/software integration of third-party VPX and mezzanine peripherals. For the deployed solution, X-ES has ½ ATR chassis solutions, high-performance backplane designs, and power supplies with holdup power and EMI shielding from which custom system solutions easily can be derived.
