Mercury Computer Systems has launched a range of OpenVPX Reference Design Kits.

The kits provide customers with an engineering blueprint that significantly reduces customisation, cost and risk in the development of OpenVPX-compliant 3U and 6U payload and switch modules.

The Vita-owned OpenVPX V1.0 System Specification is a direct response to the edict issued by a range of government officials and agencies for performance migration through the use of open-source software and the development of open-architecture systems.

The OpenVPX Reference Design Kits include CAD models, mechanical assembly information, thermal information, bills of material and expert support from Mercury's Services and Systems Integration team.

With a stable and robust reference for air- and conduction-cooled 3U and 6U OpenVPX-based board design, board-development time is expected to be reduced by approximately three to five months.

The likelihood of downstream respin cycles is minimised or eliminated.
