Article: OpenVPX solves VPX interoperability challenges; plans for future features

Together, these constraints enable interoperability between vendors within the same backplane. Boards and modules fit together in predictable ways, much like the toy building blocks shown on the cover of this Special Supplement on OpenVPX with Executive Speakouts. But OpenVPX systems are not toys; they’ll soon form the basis of next-gen high-rel systems with ample features and headroom for decades to come.
