6U VPX Power Backplanes

VPX is a broadly defined technology utilizing the latest in a variety of switch fabric technologies in 3U and 6U format blades. Open VPX is the architecture framework that defines system level VPX interoperability for multi-vendor, multi-module, integrated system environments.

The Open VPX framework defines clear interoperability points necessary for integration between Module to Module, Module to Backplane and Chassis. Open VPX recommends, but does not specify development systems to assist evaluation, prototype and development of VPX systems. Open VPX will evolve and include new fabric, connector and system technology as newer standards are defined.

Our VPX Power backplanes are hand-made with quality and longevity in mind. Ask your Hartmann representative which configuration is best for you. Also have a look at our VPX power supplies here.
