The R-VPX Evolution series is specifically designed to support the latest high-speed protocols while meeting OpenVPX requirements. These high-speed modules are capable of data rate transfer speeds of more than 16 Gb/s and meet the performance requirements of VITA 46 and VITA 47 standards while being intermateable with existing VITA 46 backplane connectors. Optimized for speed and ruggedized to endure harsh environments in military applications across the board. 

Features & Benefits:

  • 16 Gb/s+ performance 
  • Module connector has a modified footprint- utilizes smaller compliant contacts for increased Si performance 
  • Backplane connector is the legacy connector- no changes necessary on the backplane 
  • Intermateable with existing/legacy VITA 46 connectors 
  • Production released 
  • Footprint compliant with 46.30 (VITA draft spec) 
  • Passed VITA 72 vibration level testing with BER monitoring.
