The IAB is designed to mate with Emerson Network Power’s iVPX7225 processor blade, based on the Intel 3rd generation Core mobile chipset and also launched today. The VPX3000
accepts up to three 3U conduction cooled OpenVPX modules and includes a VITA-62 compliant AC or DC power supply with a MIL-38999 power input connector and a front panel switch.
“As OpenVPX technology becomes more widely adopted, Emerson Network Power remains committed to providing innovative solutions for OEMs,” said Eric Gauthier, vice president product marketing for Emerson Network Power’s Embedded Computing business. “This is a complex market that demands customization and integrated platforms, and the VPX3000 system enclosure is one of the building blocks in a growing portfolio that enables Emerson Network Power to deliver complete solutions.”
Two Data Plane Fat Pipes from each slot are connected in a full mesh configuration. Two Control Plane Ultra Thin Pipes from each slot are routed to the IAB as 1000Base-T interfaces. USB 2.0 and Display Port interfaces are also routed to the IAB in all variants. A rugged variant of the VPX300, targeted at military, aerospace and government applications includes three MIL-38999 connectors for I/O from each slot. An alternative variant includes commercial connectors on the IAB and is targeted towards industrial and development applications.
