An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release VXS backplanes enable out-of-band communication from Elma Electronic, which we summarised at the time by saying "Elma is offering VXS backplanes with a Gigabit Ethernet Control Layer Channel per VITA 41.6, providing for out-of-band communication. ". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Single-board computer features rugged design from Aitech Defense Systems: "Aitech Defense Systems has introduced a 6U VPX SBC suitable for radar system boot computers, sonar processors, video and graphics engines and single-board process and machine control applications. ".

In October 2010, we covered the news from Lattice Semiconductor - take a look at Demonstration platform supports Serial RapidIO 2.1 which says: "Lattice Semiconductor has announced the availability of a fully integrated evaluation and demonstration platform supporting its Serial RapidIO 2.1 endpoint core and utilising the Lattice ECP3 FPGAs.".

Take a look also at the news release from Mercury Computer Systems, OpenVPX Intel modules target ISR applications, as well as Mercury offers connector tool for Intel processors from Mercury Computer Systems, and Switches ideal for wireless infrastructure market from IDT.
