VPX Plus

VIEW MERITEC’S VPX CONFIGURATOR

Meritec offers a compatible cabling system that provides endless possibilities for accessing and expanding the basic VPX backplane. Bring all VITA46 and Open VPX I/O out of your VPX backplane utilizing SATA, SAS, Serial Rapid I/O, Infiband, Ethernet and Mil-38999 connectors. This system and its I/O capabilities are designed for full bandwidth test and deployment.

The Meritec VPX+ also allows ultimate flexibility when either cabling daughter-card position to daughter-card position, point-to-point, or when incorporating cable I/O from the backplane. This utility recognized the need for laboratory development experimentation and for ultimately deployable product having certain unique functions.

VPX PlusD

Meritec’s newest preliminary product, VPX PlusD™, is a deployable backplane I/O that is cost effective and has superior signal integrity. The wafers communicate with the backplane directly through the press-fit tails that utilize the backplane vias prepared for the multi-gig connections. The wafers are installed with special press-fit fixtures and are held in place with a composite frame that uses the same hardware locations that are provided for the multi-gig connections.

Why choose Meritec’s VPX PlusD™?

  • Cost Effective
  • Superior Signal Integrity 25Gb/s
  • Deployable
  • Low Profile @ 0.5 in above the PCB
  • Available for use with 20.30 mm (0.8 in) or 25.4 mm (1.0 in) Card Pitch Systems
  • Allows for hybrid applications along with the muli-gig Connectors on the same backplane
