OpenVPX Backplanes

Elma Electronic is the leader in VITA 46/65 VPX and OpenVPX products. Our experts developed the industry’s first VPX backplane and proposed the first VME pinouts to the VITA 46 subcommittee. Since then, Elma has developed various VPX and OpenVPX configurations with and without legacy VME64x slots. VPX presents design challenges with higher layer-count backplanes, and more demanding power and cooling requirements. We tackle these problems with signal integrity analysis, thermal simulation and testing.
