VITA 46 ATR chassis

Elma Electronic Inc. offers a prototype chassis based on the upcoming VITA 46 and VITA 48 standards developed by the VME International Trade Association (VITA) Standards Organization.

The VITA 46 ATR chassis features a 12-slot mesh backplane and integrated front-to-rear airflow. The 12-slot hybrid fabric backplane is a general-purpose VITA 46 implementation that supports three legacy VME 64x slots and nine VITA 46 slots.

The VITA 46 bus segment provides two 4-slot meshed clusters for high performance blade computing or pipeline graphics processing. It uses 120Vac or 28Vdc power supplies with bottom patch panel access to the P2 section of the backplane.

The VMEbus originates in the three-slot legacy VMEbus segment and is continued across the P2 connectors of the VITA 46 bus segment. The high-density MultiGig connectors, selected for VITA 46, in each slot have been interconnected so that each of the two 4-slot clusters provide a choice of star, mesh, or ring topologies. This arrangement will support a variety of signal processing applications, said the company, and is a suitable platform for companies to develop and deploy new VITA 46 solutions.

Pricing for the VITA46 ATR starts at less than $4,500, depending on volume and feature. Delivery is six weeks.
