"Our customers are eagerly adopting the new optical and RF I/O standards for VPX," said Robert Sgandurra, director of Product Management. "Over half of new product orders require optical or RF I/O per these standards for high-performance I/O that perfectly match our product capabilities."
The Model 54821 takes advantage of these VPX I/O options for RF and optical interconnects through the VPX backplane:
• Option -109: Optical connections based on VITA 66.5 (draft), containing blind-mate MT optical connectors with fixed contacts on the plug-in module and floating displacement on the backplane.
• Option -111: RF connections based on ANSI/VITA 67.2, containing multi-position blind-mate analog connectors with SMPM contacts.
• Option -112: RF connections based on ANSI/VITA 67.3 type C, containing multi-position blind mate analog connectors with SMPM contacts, spring-loaded on the backplane allowing more movement and larger diameter cables for better performance.
This new 3U VPX architecture further expands the options for custom I/O by offering 20 pairs of LVDS connectivity and one 8X gigabit link for serial protocols. Future options for higher density optical and RF connectors are planned as the supporting standards become available.
