VadaTech Announces New 6U VPX, Optical Amplifier/Splitter

VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, announces the VPX981. The VPX981 is an optical amplifier/splitter module for use in 6U OpenVPX platforms requiring signal distribution over fiber.

Henderson, NV - May 10, 2019 - VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, announces the VPX981. The VPX981 is an optical amplifier/splitter module for use in 6U OpenVPX platforms requiring signal distribution over fiber (VTX350 as an example). An optical signal received from front-panel LC1 is amplified then split to provide 92 outputs (90 to the rear via MT ferrules and 2 to the front via LC UPC connectors). Fiber output to the backplane is via VITA 66.1 connectors, a high-density, blind-mate optical interconnect.


Power matching between outputs is within +/- 1dB and all optical I/O is over single-mode 1551 nm fibers. The module draws power from the P0 connector which also provides a Serial Port for control. The VT981 is suitable for environments requiring MIL-STD-810 and MIL-STD-167-1A, such as rugged embedded computing, radar and electronic warfare systems.
