System Expansion: VPX Carrier Cards interface XMC Modules

In the ever-evolving world of high-performance computing and sophisticated applications.  System Expansion with different protocols has always been difficult.  Meeting this demand head-on, Acromag has introduced two groundbreaking carrier cards: the VPX4840 and VPX4850. These VPX carrier cards are engineered to seamlessly interface XMC modules with VPX (VITA 46) computer systems, heralding a new era of system expansion and integration capabilities.

XMC modules, known for their compact size and powerful I/O capabilities.  In addition, they are critical in enhancing the functionality of host systems. They are particularly favoured in applications where performance and speed cannot be compromised. However, integrating these mezzanine cards into VPX systems,  has often posed a challenge. This is where Acromag steps in, bridging the gap with the VPX4840 and VPX4850 carrier cards.

The VPX Standard

The VPX standard, developed by the VMEbus International Trade Association (VITA), is at the forefront of modular computing architecture. VPX systems are rugged and deliver high-speed data processing.  Therefore, making them indispensable in critical applications. Acromag’s new carrier cards complement this standard.  Achieved by offering low latency access to XMC modules through high-speed interconnects. This feature is crucial for applications demanding rapid data transfer and processing.  Therefore, ensuring that systems operate at peak efficiency.
