VPX370 – 6-Slot 3U VPX Development System

6-Slot 3U VPX Development System with an Integrated Single Board Computer

The VPX370 is a second generation VPX development platform that delivers, performance, flexibility, and scalability all in a compact 3U VPX form factor. The VPX370 is a 6-slot system developed specifically for aerospace and defense applications. The modular architecture enables users to add high performance FPGA and I/O to the base configuration addressing many application requirements such as digital RF memory (DRFM), synchronous multi-channel MIMO systems, software defined radio (SDR) and more.


The VPX370 was designed with flexibility in mind: both in the ability to scale from lab to field and in application versatility. All 4DSP FPGA, I/O technology, and backplanes used in the VPX370 can be configured for rugged conduction cooled form factors making the system an ideal platform for developing IP and technology with an easy migration path to a deployed rugged system such as the VPX362.
