Pentek 3U VPX Boards for Data Acquisition, Software Radio, and DSP

Pentek rolled out new 3U VPX boards for data acquisition, software radio and digital signal processing. The new boards offer flexible backplane fabric connections supporting maximum data rates of up to 4 GB/sec with PCI Express (PCIe) Generation 2 (Gen 2) and 2.5 GB/sec with other protocols. The 3U VPX boards are ideal for avionics, including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), shipboard and airborne radar, and signal intelligence applications.
