The VPX reference guide provides relevant reference material for Elma's VPX backplanes. The information provided may change at anytime. OpenVPX is a process that defines system level VPX interoperability for multi-vendor, multi-module, integrated systems environments. The OpenVPX process defines clear interoperability points necessary for integration from module to module, module to backplane and backplane to chassis.
Control and manage the assignment of VPX pins to functional planes in an interoperable architecture
To get a high-degree of interoperability, while leaving room for sensor- /application-specific augmentation
To make the process of developing VPX-based solutions from the lab to the field much more efficient in cost, time, quality, and repeatability
OpenVPX provides a descriptive language for identifying slot and module requirements and backplanes capability. It also provided withthe part number configuration more information on the control and fabric planes, including the signal speeds.
