OpenVPX Technology: Roadmap to the Future

Available On Demand Until April 25, 2020

The U.S. Department of Defense and other users are demanding the implementation of open standards and interoperability. VPX specifications have largely been focused at the board level, but there is also a need for considering system-level requirements to improve interoperability and reduce customization, testing, cost, and risk. Enter the OpenVPX Systems Specification.
This one-hour Technical Webinar from the editors of Tech Briefs Media will answer two important questions. Where is OpenVPX technology today? And where is it going?
An audience Q&A is included.
