Elma Electronic has developed a VPC chassis and software for the merging Modular Open RF Architecture (MORA) standard.

The integrated platform simplifies the process of RF signal processing capabilities for applications aligned with MORA. It integrates an I/O-intensive processor card, a high-speed Ethernet switch and a high-performing RF transceiver payload plug-in card to provide interfaces aligned to MORA for the VICTORY Data Bus (VBD) and MORA Low Latency Bus (ML2B).

The 8-slot, 3U VPX backplane is also aligned to established SOSA sensor interoperability standard and the single board computers, payload and switch plug-in cards are also aligned to SOSA with a built-in VITA 46.11 chassis manager.

Software from Sciens Innovations provides graphical representations of complex MORA interactions for simplified MORA device development, configuration and deployment.

The MORA-Ready Development Platform uses the hardware-agnostic helux Core software from Sciens Innovations, a combination of software libraries and firmware modules.

“We’re excited to be demonstrating the capabilities of the SOSA ecosystem to deliver innovative implementations for deployment in real applications. Through our extensive industry partnerships, like with Sciens, Elma continues to build systems and partnerships based on the wider open standards community,” said Ken Grob, director of embedded computing for Elma Electronic.

Elma uses technology based on VITA, PICMG, and other standards-based architectures such as OpenVPX, SOSA, VME, CompactPCI Serial, COM Express and PCIe/104 and it is also actively engaged in designing solutions for applications requiring smaller footprints.
