VITA, PICMG, COM-HPCTM, COM Express®, MicroSAM®, and MicroTCA® are all developing standards or updating with new additions and Samtec is moving along with them.
Samtec’s involvement in standards has grown over the years, and there are no signs of that slowing down. Because of this involvement, we have some exciting updates to pass along. In this blog, we will discuss a few of the additional offerings that Samtec has for standards.
VITA 74 VNX
VNX isn’t new, but keep your eyes on it. In the next year, Samtec will have several VNX releases. That said, Samtec has recently developed and released a development/extender cable for the VNX platform.
These new cables include features:
- 12.5 mm Mated Low Pin Count (LPC 200 pin) High Data Rate Cable
- 19 mm Mated High Pin Count (HPC 400 pin) High Data Rate Cable
VITA 42 XMC
XMC also receives requests for additional development tools, and Samtec has released a development/extender cable for it. These new cables include features such as:
- High Data Rate Cable, (XMC) female to (XMC) male
The PCI/104-Express™ standard specifies Samtec’s Q2™ QMS/QFS Products in a three bank (156 pin) orientation for module stacking. We have had the request for a development/extender cable for this standard as well.
These new cables include features such as:
- High Data Rate Cable, (QFS) female to (QMS) male
- High Data Rate Cable, OneBank (QFS) female to (QMS) male
The Standards landing pages are continuing to grow on Samtec’s website, and the PICMG landing page is part of that growth. PICMG has no shortage of standards, and we list a few of them that we are involved in.
The new form factor assists sensor vendors to quickly create smart sensors without having to worry about its control domain.
When combined with the PICMG sensor domain network architecture and data model, MicroSAM® allows sensors to seamlessly integrate into the network with plug-and-play interoperability.
MicroTCA systems are both physically smaller and less expensive than AdvancedTCA systems, although their internal architectures are largely the same.
MicroTCA was originally intended for smaller telecom systems at the edge of the network but has moved into many non-telecom applications, with standardized, ruggedized versions becoming popular in mobile, military, telemetry, data acquisition, and avionics applications.
