OpenVPX Platform Accelerates DoD Board Development

(Elma Electronic)

For developing activities begun under by the C4ISR Modular Open Suite of Standards (CMOSS) initiative, Elma Electronic offers a 3U OpenVPX Convergence Development Platform.  It serves as a complete test environment to enable the integrated development of common, modular hardware architectures across critical C4ISR and EW systems.


System Highlights:

  • Helps optimize technology reuse across DoD programs
  • 12-slot 3U OpenVPX backplane provides 10GBase-KR board-to-board signaling with aggregated port speeds to 40G
  • Accommodates boards with latest VITA 65.0-2017 slot profiles for target application development
  • Chassis supports conduction-cooled cards with open access for test 

Built on Elma's easy-access E-frame test chassis, the new development platform enables system engineers to test a range of boards that meet profiles designed for use in various Department of Defense (DoD) program requirements, significantly streamlining engineering efforts and reducing time and cost to deployment.
