3U OpenVPX Multifunction I/O Board
Three I/O and communication function module slots—
Over 70 different modules to choose from
NAI’s 68C3 is a 3U OpenVPX Multifunction I/O and Communication Board with three function module slots that can be configured with a variety of I/O and communication functions. Additional enhancements include FIFO data buffering for select modules. Using multiple DSPs, the enhanced motherboard enables higher processing power and dedicated pre-processing control for each module.
By eliminating the need for multiple, specialized, single-function boards, this unique design increases packaging density, saves enclosure slots, and reduces power consumption. The 68C3, a low-power/high-performance board, is ideally suited for rugged defense, commercial aerospace, and industrial applications.
In a VPX chassis, the 68C3 acquires sensor measurement data and controls simulation signals, and makes this information available to an external host processor via Gigabit Ethernet (Gig-E) or PCIe. Preexisting, fully-tested functions can be quickly and easily combined in an unlimited number of ways. Each I/O function has dedicated processing, unburdening the system Single Board Computer (SBC) from unnecessary data management overhead.
