What is VPX

The Versatile Performance Switching (VPX) standard, also known as VITA 46, defines Eurocard form factor systems supporting switched fabrics over a new high speed connector. Intended for embedded systems that meet the extremely harsh environments of military applications where size, weight, and power (SWaP) are critical, ADLINK's VPX line of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) products enable fast deployment with reduced development burden and costs compared to proprietary systems.

ADLINK VPX multi-processor high performance blades are available in both 3U and 6U form factors. All ADLINK VPX products are Extreme Rugged™ and suitable for mission-critical signal intelligence; radar; and Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) applications in the most demanding battlefield environments.

All VPX products are fully validated and certified by ADLINK before delivery, and with the VPX Starter Kit including test frame, peripheral card, RTM and BSP, system integrators can quickly and efficiently develop and deploy systems that deliver great reliability with fast time-to-market.


Extreme Rugged™
Our Extreme Rugged boards and systems are designed for harsh environments from the ground up. To support the extremes of shock, vibration, humidity, and temperature, care is given to component selection, circuit design, PCB layout and materials, thermal solutions, enclosure design, and manufacturing process. Robust test methods, including Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT), ensure optimal product design phases and meet stringent requirements such as -40°C to +85°C operating temperature range, MIL-STD, shock & vibration, and long-term reliability.
Our Rugged products achieve a middle ground between industrial and Extreme Rugged applications that experience less shock and vibration and operate within a -20°C to +70°C temperature range. PC-style connectors are used to simplify cabling because shock and vibration are minimal. Thermal solutions and other system components are designed for indoor and light outdoor environments.
