3U OpenVPX Multifunction I/O Board Model 68G5P

Three I/O and communication function module slots—
Over 70 different modules to choose from

Customer-configurable 3U OpenVPX Intelligent I/O Board

The 68G5P is a 3U OpenVPX board that can be configured with up to three NAI smart I/O and communication function modules. Uniquely designed, the 68G5P provides external access via PCIe x1 and/or SATA II interfaces directly to supported NAI function modules, providing external host SBC function expansion. Additionally, the 68G5P is on NAI’s certifiable product line development roadmap supporting DO-178C and DO-254 design assurance guidelines for safety-critical applications. Ideally suited for rugged Mil-Aero applications, the 68G5P delivers off-the-shelf solutions that accelerate deployment of SWaP-optimized systems in air, land and sea applications.

Adaptable Architecture

NAI’s Configurable Open Systems Architecture™ (COSA®) offers a choice of over 70 intelligent I/O, communication, and Ethernet switch functions, providing the highest packaging density and greatest flexibility of any multifunction I/O board in the industry. Preexisting, fully-tested functions can be quickly and easily combined in an unlimited number of ways. Each I/O function has dedicated processing, unburdening the system Single Board Computer (SBC) from unnecessary data management overhead.

Software Support Kit (SSK)

The 68G5P includes SSKs to support multiple operating systems. In addition, SSKs are supplied with source code and board-specific library I/O APIs to facilitate system integration.

Eliminate man-months of integration with a configured, field-proven system from NAI.
