The talk by Philip Morris, director and chief technologist of Mercury Computer Systems, will explain how Open VPX architectures support multiple planes of very high bandwidth data communications across a range of switch fabrics and protocols.
This level of bandwidth can support, in a balanced and efficient fashion, very high levels of processing power.
The Open VPX standard also incorporates support for advanced cooling techniques for the electronics within a subsystem. This allows implementations with new generations of powerful, but heat intensive, processor technologies to be used in subsystems sized for deployment on military platforms.
The conference will be opened by Merfyn Lloyd, science advisor to the chief of materiel (land) at the MoD DE&S, who will talk in his keynote presentation about the open systems architecture for the land domain.
The one-day event will contain a two-stream technical conference and associated exhibition. It will be held at the Royal Berkshire Conference Centre, part of the Madejski Stadium, home of Championship football club Reading.
MAE is produced by engineers and supported by leading industry organisations. The one day event has been built around a day of technical seminars which have been selected by an independent judging panel of experts and will consider the key topics in this challenging environment, helping engineers to make more informed decisions for their current and future design projects.
Delegates attending MAE will also be able to view demonstrations of the very latest software and hardware products on the market as well as meet and network with industry peers and VIPs.
Anyone wishing to register for the event should visit www.mae-show.com to register online. Early booking is recommended as seminars have been over-subscribed in recent years.
