Dawn Gen3 3U OpenVPX Backplanes Designed For True Signal Integrity At Up To 10.3 Gbaud Performance

Dawn VPX-5987 Gen3 3U OpenVPX Backplane

Supporting PCIe Gen3 and 10 GbE (XAUI) and the most advanced Gen3 bandwidth module configurations.

Dawn VME Products, a leading designer and manufacturer of high performance and reliable embedded packaging technology products based on the VITA™ and PICMG® architectures, announces its newly released VPX-598x Series Gen3 3U OpenVPX Backplanes.

Dawn’s Gen3 3U OpenVPX backplanes are designed for true signal integrity at up to 10.3 Gbaud performance (per VITA 68 backplane simulation models). Supporting PCIe Gen 3 and 10 GbE (XAUI) and the most advanced Gen3 bandwidth module configurations, Dawn Gen3 backplanes offer multiple connector choices, including a high vibration option.

Dawn uses VITA 68 S-parameter simulation models of signal paths across the backplane to insure compliance with signal integrity standards. In the simulation models a signal integrity budget is established for the backplane portion of a system. These models permit simulation of the backplane with available OpenVPX modules and connectors, so full system signal integrity can be achieved.

Using these simulations to guide the backplane designs, Dawn engineers use back drilling to remove stubs and then layout paths to eliminate impedance discontinuities. The goal is to optimize the path between any pair of transmitting and receiving chips in the systems, so communication proceeds without cross talk or other forms of interference.

Dawn’s 598x Series VPX backplanes are designed to be compliant with the following released standards and December 2015 state of draft specifications: VITA 46.0, VITA 46.1, VITA 46.3, VITA 46.4, VITA 46.6, VITA 46.7, VITA 46.9, VITA 46.10, VITA 46.11, VITA 48.0(REDI), VITA 48.1(REDI Air Cooling), Vita 48.2(REDI Conduction Cooling), VITA65.0 (OpenVPX) ready. VITA 68 backplane models are available on request for system simulation.
