VPX and OpenVPX structures have the ability to add new protocols if need be, which is great news for investors approaching the fabrics of the future.
RoHS and WEEE are European Union directives that ban the use of lead and five other substances in many electronics applications, effectively initiating the world-wide lead-free movement. Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing is a leader in terms of its extensive lead-free knowledge, risk analysis and mitigation.
Considering the environmentally intense environments faced by modern military electronics, the ability to meet the widest range of ruggedization and operating temperature requirements is an absolute must. And, when traditional Direct Forced Air (DFA) and conduction-cooling techniques are insufficient, designers are turning to more advanced approaches to save the day: Airflow Through (AFT) cooling, spray cooling, and Liquid Flow Through (LFT) cooling.
