- The VXS technology (VITA 41.x - VMEbus Switched Serial) represents an extension of the VME family. The VXS Switched Serial standard enhances the reliable VME technology. Fully reverse compatible to VME/VME64x, VXS utilizes a new 6.4 Gbps high-speed connector across the P0/J0 section of a VME64x backplane.
- For serial communication VXS defines new slot types: switch (maximum 2) and payload (maximum 18). With the corresponding ADVANCETECH Hi-Speed backplanes different topologies can be implemented: Single Star, Dual Star or Switchless-Mesh. The different protocols such as Infiniband (VITA 41.1) or Serial RapidIO (VITA 41.2) are supported by the protocol-agnostic ADVANCETECH Hi-Speed backplanes.
