VPX offers design flexibility using standard components, making it multi-dimensional and requiring collaboration at different levels of system development
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) November 20, 2014
ADLINK Technology, a leading global provider of cloud-based services, intelligent gateways, and embedded building blocks for edge devices that enable the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that its VPX3000 has been validated for incorporation into an Elma Target Application Guide (TAG), used to build a high speed data recording system. Using a full suite of functional integration tests, the board was jointly qualified with Elma, ADLINK’s value-added reseller and channel partner for North America and an industry innovator in the design and manufacture of electronic enclosures and integrated sub-systems. The TAG based on the ADLINK VPX3000 reduces the customer’s overall design cycle and cuts time-to-market (TTM).
The ADLINK VPX3000 Series is an Intel® Core™ i7 processor-based 3U VPX processor blade. Rugged, conduction-cooled with conformal coating, the VPX3000 supports the requirements of mission-critical applications, as well as VITA 46, VPX REDI 48, and OpenVPX VITA 65 standards and VITA 47-2005 environmental specifications. The VPX3000 is ideal for system integrators who have a need for an advanced VPX board with VPX REDI and OpenVPX compliance in order to deploy high performance applications requiring quick TTM. Using Elma’s TAG for High Speed Data Recording, the complexities of VPX systems integration have been reduced with pre-qualified systems components that include ADLINK’S VPX3000 based on the quad-core Intel® Core™ i7 processor, Elma’s 3U dual SATA SSD carriers for high speed storage, and a 3U VPX XMC carrier for added peripheral support, if desired.
The VPX-based rugged High Speed Data Recording System TAG is applicable to such vertical markets as: avionics, ground vehicle systems, ISR (intelligence, surveillance & reconnaissance), oil & gas, and transportation. A storage subsystem has also been identified and can extend as a RAID 0, 1 or 5 array. Providing step-by-step guidelines, this new TAG identifies VPX system component selections and ensures compatibility by validating all module, slot, and backplane profiles, reducing overall systems development time. Elma supports its TAG resource tools with one of the most experienced system integration teams in the embedded computing industry.
“VPX offers design flexibility using standard components, making it multi-dimensional and requiring collaboration at different levels of system development,” said Ken Grob, Director, Embedded Computing Products & Systems at Elma Electronic.
”The use of Target Application Guides marries the vision of OpenVPX with the wealth of partner eco-system offerings by removing some of the initial systems integration complexities, enabling faster time to production and increasing reliability,” said Mamdouh Mikhail, Architect for Embedded Computing, ADLINK Americas.
