VITA 74 VNX Standard Products and Support

VITA 74 VNX 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.

Defining mechanical and electrical requirements, VNX embodies a small-scale VPX architecture, simplified to satisfy a new range of applications. The Standard encourages vendors to supply system components, including modules, backplanes, enclosures, and completed solutions.

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…

Many of our Samtec blogs focus on high-speed, high-bandwidth, cutting-edge connector applications. This makes sense because Signal Integrity is a critical issue for many of our customers, and because it’s a more flashy, attention-grabbing, sexy topic. And yes, I did just use the ...
Many electronics experience a wide range of climates while in operation and storage. Because of this fact, connector humidity testing is used to determine the ability of a product to withstand elevated humidity and cycling temperatures. Humidity testing is conducted in combinatio...
In this new video, Samtec’s Kevin Burt introduces Samtec Direct Connect™. Direct Connect gives the benefit of exiting a higher number of lanes at low loss from the chip package, which can be very useful in both high performance computing and network switching applications, especi...
This is the first release of a few phases of a new login system for Samtec.com. This replaces a system that was built in 2011 and has been running well ever since. But, technology changes over time, and it was time for an upgrade. Here are some additional details about the featur...
Modern electronic devices are getting smaller with every new generation, and as a result, they are becoming more portable.  At the same time, the performance of these devices is growing as the demands of consumers become greater.  We expect to be able to connect to the internet w...
