VPX361 3U VPX System

6-slots with integrated Single Board Computer

The VPX361 is a 6-slot, 3U VPX system dedicated to high-speed signal processing and computing applications. The VPX361 system slot is populated with a single-board computer (SBC) comprising a dual-core i7 Intel processor, up to 8GB of DDR3 SDRAM, two Ethernet ports, and a DVI display port. All remaining five expansion slots communicate with the host via PCIe and can be used for high-end, 3U, OpenVPX-compliant cards.


With a backplane optimised for fast inter-slot communication in excess of 6 GB/s between any two adjacent slots in the system, the VPX361 offers a combination of flexibility and high performance in a standard, 19-inch equipment rack enclosure. OpenVPX cards from third-party vendors or 3U VPX products from 4DSP can be used in the VPX361. Specifically, the VP780 with a Virtex-7 FPGA and an FMC site offers I/O versatility and processing power that makes it suitable for any application.
