Wed, 08/11/2010 - 6:37am


Elma Bustronic Corporation, an industry leading designer and manufacturer of high performance backplanes has announced a new 3U VPX Backplane with connector for Radio Frequency (RF) and analog signals. The use of RF interconnects is expected to be an important issue for many Mil/Aero applications where the VITA 46/65 specifications for VPX are highly targeted.

  The Bustronic VPX Backplane is designed to meet OpenVPX design considerations. Work is underway on a VITA 67 specification for RF signals over VPX and Bustronic plans to develop a version that will meet the specification when it is finalized. The backplane features a 5-slot mesh routing configuration with the RF connectors in three slots. The 4-cavity RF connector is installed in the lower half of the standard J2 connector. This corresponds to rows 9-16 of slots 3, 4 and 5. The coax interconnects provides better signaling, higher data rates, less noise, and less crosstalk than discrete wire.
