Elma Adds to Comprehensive Line of SOSA Aligned Backplanes That Enable Complex, High Speed Signal Processing in Rugged Applications

Technology Highlights

·     Rugged 3U OpenVPX series aligned with SOSA

·     Expanded series to support DoD MOSA initiative

·     High speed connectivity using optical fiber and RF connectors

·     Multiple slot options for several high-performance mission-critical applications

 

FREMONT, Calif., February 2023 – Elma Electronic has now added six additional high-speed backplanes that align with The Open Group Sensor Open Systems Architecture™ (SOSA) Technical Standard 1.0 and incorporate the latest optical fiber and RF connectivity. With 2-, 4- and 6-slot options, the expanded 3U OpenVPX series of backplanes provides development options to meet the complex demands of high-performance rugged military operations.

Designed to help accelerate development of a common, modular architecture across critical C5ISR and EW systems, Elma’s comprehensive line of SOSA aligned backplanes supports the Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) standardization initiative from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). The series incorporates current Ethernet and PCI Express standards as well as optimizes SWaP and lowers lifecycle costs for rapid technology insertion.

Dave Caserza, Manager, Embedded Computing Architects for Elma Electronic Inc., commented, “As military embedded computing moves towards adoption of systems implemented using the SOSA architecture, having access to the right ­­­­tools will be critical for design engineers to quickly bring systems to market. Expanding our offerings of integral system components, like these new high-speed backplanes aligned with SOSA, is just part of Elma’s commitment to providing industry-leading open standards technologies.”

The new backplanes support up to 100GBase-KR4 and PCIe gen 4 high-speed signals on all applicable data paths. One of the 6-slot models also supports VITA 66.5 optical connectors for the Ethernet switch slot.

Several high-performance mission-critical systems can benefit from these new backplanes including mission control, sensor-based systems, surveillance, radar and other beamforming applications as well as weapons control, target tracking and display, navigational control, threat detection and process and environmental monitoring.
