Short VPX and the military's demand for smaller form factors
The McHale Report Podcast
by Military Embedded Systems
1y ago
Reduced size, weight, and power (SWaP) requirements are pervasive throughout defense electronics platforms. Electronic footprints continue to shrink so much that traditional small form factors like 3U VPX or 3U CompactPCI are considered too big. So, it's not surprising that the VITA Standards Organization (VSO) is looking at new form factors, such as Short VPX. In this podcast, Jay Grandin, Vice President of Product Development at Annapolis Micro Systems discusses demand for small form factors, how Short VPX can meet that demand, and how it fits into the Open VPX ecosystem. Grandin also explor ..read more
