An entry level VPX development system from Verotec

06 December 2011

Verotec has introduced the TecSYS VPX development platform, designed to address the issue of the lack of a suitable entry-level development platform that provides a basic physical environment for software development and board integration. A modular system assembled from standard building blocks, the TecSYS is user-configurable around the default options if required.

The 3U TecSYS VPX is housed in a 10.5” half width 6U, 322mm deep Diplomat enclosure, which is configured with a 2U plenum chamber at the bottom, a 3U KM6-RF subrack in the middle and a 1U air exhaust chamber at the top.

The heart of the system is a 5-Slot 3U full mesh X4 PCI Express VITA 46.4 backplane, which also provides VITA 46.10 RTM capability, an important consideration for I/O, which is easily accessed through a removable rear panel; the top cover is also readily removable for improved access.


The backplane provides System Management and JTAG Interfaces; it gives fat pipe communications between all five slots and provides an interface with one of the most widely used architectures, PCI Express. Pluggable PSUs with two independent converters operating in parallel provide 30A at 5V and 40A at 3.3V simultaneously.

Originally developed for VPX, TecSYS is modular and scalable, enabling it to be used very easily for other bus structures such as VMEbus, VME64x and cPCI. Delivery times for all variants are short, reducing time to market.
