VadaTech Announces Plan for Industry’s Largest Portfolio of COTS VPX Products
VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, today announced a major new initiative to bring its existing commercially-developed designs to the 3U VPX form factor. This gives defense customers the opportunity to take field-proven designs in another standard format with strong market adoption. With over 300 relevant products, VadaTech could very quickly have the largest portfolio of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) VPX products in the industry.
The company’s initial product offerings will focus on its strength in data acquisition and sensor processing, followed by storage and networking. In addition, VadaTech’s extensive FMC product base is also applicable in the VPX form factor. The company is presenting its VPX roadmap to customers and distributors in the USA, Europe and Asia, with initial products available during the first quarter of 2016. Preliminary datasheets for the first twelve products will be available to lead customers from next month.
Paul Kuepfer, sales and marketing vice president, VadaTech, said: “While VadaTech is fully committed to providing MicroTCA product into commercial, research and defense applications, we recognize that for some customers – especially those with military and aerospace applications – VPX is a corporate mandate for deployed systems. By providing designs in both AMC and VPX, we will offer a straight-forward migration route between the standards. Design re-use across the form factors will allow us to amortize development over larger volumes than other defense-centric COTS providers.”
VadaTech provides innovative embedded computing solutions from board-level products, chassis-level platforms, to configurable application-ready systems. With a focus on AdvancedTCA, MicroTCA and VPX solutions, the company offers unmatched product selection and expertise. A unique combination of electrical, mechanical, software, and system-level expertise, enables VadaTech to provide customized commercial or rugged computing solutions to meet the most complex customer requirements.
