VITA 74 VNX Form Factor Standard Products and Support

VITA 74 VNX Form Factor Standard Products and Support

Overview

VITA 74 VNX introduces a new approach to rugged Small Form Factor (SFF) design. Its unique module-based format offers system architects greater freedom in developing COTS SFF systems. VNX's machined chassis, robust backplane, and conduction-cooled modules unite to form an extremely rugged assembly.

The Expanding VNX Ecosystem

Expanding VNX Ecosystem

The embedded marketplace continues to drive SWaP (Size, Weight, and Power) requirements to the extreme. Many of these demands call for high performance but at a much-reduced size and power. VITA 74 standard based products serve markets needing ruggedized products requiring Data Plane interconnect technologies that closely follow the industry state of the art. Various vendors are already incorporating these VNX technologies offering features such as:

  • Small Form Factor (SFF) switched serial interconnects
  • Open-frame backplane design
  • Legacy I/O compatibility at the Plug-In Module level
  • Available in variable chassis heights of 12.5 mm and 19 mm

Trident Infosol Raptor VNX (VITA 74) COTS Computer

The Raptor is a rugged, small form factor, Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS), pre-qualified computer based on VNX (VITA 74) standard. Derived directly from VPX (VITA 46) & OpenVPX (VITA 65), VNX is the continued evolution of the VPX standard specifically designed for significantly smaller deployments. Additional features include:

  • Small Form Factor Modular Design
  • Extended operating temperatures (-40 °C to +71 °C Continuous)
  • EMI compliance per MIL-STD-461F
  • PCIe® Gen 3 compliance
  • And much more…
