VNX: Extending VPX into small form factor systems

The VNX VITA 74 specification is substantially derived from the VPX and OpenVPX standards and adapts the technology to a smaller form factor. System designers looking to utilize the specification can gain from examining the evolution of VNX as well as observing the various Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) comparisons between VPX and VNX.

Is space in the future for VNX?

VPX technology was fine-tuned for use in space by the SpaceVPX (VITA-78) Working Group. Now the lessons learned from this exercise are being applied to VNX, the small form factor variant of VPX. What is the problem with simply using legacy space electronics?

Rugged avionics computer that saves space and eases upgradeability offered by CES

Creative Electronic Systems SA (CES) in Geneva is introducing the ROCK-2 rugged, modular, avionics computer with a computing power scalable from 3,000 to 170,000 DMIPS. The ROCK-2 is open-architecture, pre-qualified, application-ready, safety-certifiable, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) avionics system in which basic functions such as I/O, video, and graphics are designed on carriers while the single-board computer function is designed on XMC.
