VPX / Open VPX Backplanes

High Speed Backplanes for VPX / VPX Applications

Home » Backplanes » VPX / Open VPX 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.

Hartmann Electronic’s VPX Standard backplanes are designed to allow any COTS or customer spec configuration in either 3U or 6U form factor by providing a wide range of available VPX and OpenVPX profiles.

All the Hartmann Backplanes support minimum 1 GBit Ethernet, most of the Backplanes can handle 10GBit Ethernet and the newest Backplanes support 100Gbit Ethernet and PCIe Gen.4.
