VITA recently published the ANSI/VITA 46.11-2022 “System Management on VPX” standard, a revision of the first edition published in 2015. As critical embedded computing systems have become extremely complex, system management is imperative. The industry is quickly adopting this capability into critical components of computing systems.
The scope of the VITA 71 Working Group is to define a groundbreaking mezzanine standard to replace the existing PMC and XMC standards. Whereas the migration from PMC to XMC was evolutionary, VITA 71 will be revolutionary.
