VadaTech Announces an OpenVPX Switch with Integrated Health Management

VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, announces the VPX004. The VPX004 is the most feature-rich OpenVPX Switch with integrated health management in the market.

Henderson, NV - April 24, 2018 - VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, announces the VPX004. The VPX004 is the most feature-rich OpenVPX Switch with integrated health management in the market. Its management software is based on VadaTech's robust Carrier Manager and Shelf Manager, which have been deployed worldwide for years with proven results. The MCMC manages power, cooling, and up to 12 payload modules within the chassis. It also manages the PCIe Gen3 switch and the standard GbE with 10GbE uplink base channel switch. The Ethernet switch is supported by an enterprise grade Layer 2 or 3 switching/routing stack with Synchronous Ethernet capability.


The VPX004 is fully redundant when used in conjunction with a second instance of the module, and firmware is HPM.2 compliant which allows for easy upgrades. The unit has optional advanced clocking features, including grand master clock and high-quality clock distribution/synthesis, enabling GPS/IEEE1588/SyncE/NTP.

The VPX004 provides Master JTAG services to payload modules via a JTAG Switch Module (JSM) with optional Virtual JTAG capability. This allows developers to program devices in an OpenVPX environment over a network connection without the need to connect a JTAG programmer. VadaTech's ScorpionWare® system management GUI is also supported, for ease of remote platform management.

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
