VITA 62 VPX Power Supplies

VPX, also known as VITA 46, is an ANSI standard defined by VITA (VME International Trade Association) that provides VMEbus-based systems with support for switched fabrics incorporating the new MultiGig RT2 high speed connectors.

VPX continuous the mechanical form factor of 6U and 3U Eurocard size but provides a more robust, high-speed performance for data-intensive, high bandwidth applications by using high speed serial switched fabric interconnects such as PCI Express, RapidIO, Infiniband and up to 100 Gigabit Ethernet.

In addition, VPX is designed to withstand greater mechanical and environmental stress making it the ideal solution for challenging military and aerospace applications. For these rugged military applications VPX is combined with REDI (Ruggedized Enhanced Design Implementation – VITA 48). VPX REDI is defining the mechanical specifications for ruggedization, ESD as well as forced air, conduction and liquid cooling.

VPX systems are typically built with an air or conduction cooled chassis which holds the VPX backplane and provides the mechanical support for the VPX plug-in modules.

OpenVPX is the architecture framework that defines system level VPX interoperability for multi-vendor, multi-module, integrated system environments. For VPX and Open VPX backplanes and chassis please see https://www.hartmann-electronic.com/products/backplanes/vpx-open-vpx-backplanes/ .

The ANSI VITA 62 standard defines the mechanical and electrical specifications for commercial-off the shelf plug-in power supply modules in 3U and 6U format.

W-IE-NE-R is providing a line of conduction cooled VITA 62 compliant modular plug-in power supplies for VPX applications. Achieving highest efficiency of the power converters the VITA and MIL standard driven design and compliance testing guarantees system integration without bad surprises.
