Aventas Inc Newsletter
February 2013

In this edition of our newsletter, we want to focus on VPX. VPX (VITA 46), an extension of VME standards, was created to deliver more robust, high-speed performance for data-intensive, high-bandwidth applications, including intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance applications such as radar, electronic warfare and electro-optical/infrared.
VPX establishes a new direction for the next revolution in bus boards, and breaks out from the traditional connector scheme of VMEbus, merging the latest in connector and packaging technology with the latest in bus and serial fabric technology.
It combines best-in-class technologies to assure a very long technology cycle similar to that of the original VMEbus solutions. Traditional parallel VMEbus will continue to be supported by VPX through bridging schemes that assure a solid migration pathway.
Take a look at a few of our partner's VPX products below.
