The proliferation of unmanned military vehicles tasked with critical communications and radar requirements drives the need for powerful data acquisition and signal processing products that must fit into increasingly tighter spaces.

New industry standards meeting these needs offer smaller circuit boards and enclosures, optical gigabit serial links, and advanced thermal management strategies. With new resources found in the latest processors and FPGAs, system designers can now create powerful, compact systems surpassing performance levels achievable only a few years ago.

The Pentek Model 5973 3U OpenVPX FMC Carrier uses Samtec FireFlyTM Micro Flyover which delivers 12 optical fiber pairs to the proposed VITA 66.4 backplane I/O
