VPX boards

  • 30-Apr-2010 04:15 EDT

Pentek’s 3U VPX boards for data acquisition, software radio, and digital signal processing include 14 new units with flexible backplane fabric connections supporting maximum data rates of up to 4 GB/s with PCI Express (PCIe) Generation 2 and 2.5 GB/s with other protocols. The PCIe interface includes a bridge that provides PCIe lane-width negotiation for x1, x4, x8, or x16 data transfers over the VPX backplane. The 3U VPX form factor is compact and suited for avionics, including unmanned aerial vehicles, shipboard and airborne radar, and signal intelligence applications.

The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
NRL scientists have demonstrated metallic spin filtering at room temperature using ferromagnet-graphene-ferromagnet thin film junction devices.
Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
