3U Open VPX Backplanes

3U OpenVPX Backplanes supporting VITA 66.4 optical, 67.1 RF and 67.3 RF/Optical module and are available in VME / VPX hybrid versions supporting legacy boards and the latest VPX boards.

Overview

Elma Electronics’ 3U OpenVPX Backplanes support VITA 66.4 optical, 67.1 RF and 67.3 RF/Optical module. Elma engineers developed the industry’s first VPX backplanes and we are the innovation leader as signal speeds and system complexities increase.

With VPX backplanes pushing the speed envelope, every feature of the design can influence signal integrity – every trace, layer separation, turn bend, via, via transition, etc. Elma’s signal integrity analysis and simulations look at the entire channel in order to ensure optimal performance.
