VITA Technologies Round Table

In time, components in electronic systems are replaced by the next generation of more technically capable components, resulting in the obsolescence of the earlier devices. This is a natural progression, but by implementing a standardized, structured approach, such as VITA technologies, that maps out the next electronics evolution, you can effectively guard against, or at least prolong, such obsolescence.
We expect as self-driving or assisted driving goes mainstream fiber-optics will interconnect all systems in the vehicle

Taking the Fast Bridge between Neural Networks

Technology for optical interconnects is vital in the industry, since processor speeds are outpacing copper wires for bandwidth and latency among devices, including VPX. During our recent interview, Gerald Persaud, VP Business Development at Reflex Photonics, told me this is a solvable problem, even in the harsh environments of military and outer space.
The LightCONEX blind mate optical interconnect for VPX embedded computing systems, consists of a module connector and a backplane connector compatible with the VITA 66.4 standard.

What are LightCONEX active optical interconnects ?

The LightCONEX 12+12 Active Blind Mate Optical Interconnect solution for the embedded computing systems features 12-lane full-duplex transceivers, each lane operating at up to 12.5 Gbps for an aggregate bandwidth of up to 300 Gbps. These transceivers are rugged, small-SWaP, low-cost modules, specifically designed for the VPX systems commonly deployed in defense and aerospace applications.
