The VPX market is an extension of the VME market, since VPX is predominately a high-speed replacement and / or upgrade technology. New designs moving forward can be broken into two categories, event driven and data driven.
An event driven application, controlling motors and actuators, moving gun turrets and missile launch frames into position are control system applications and do not require high speed or intensive computing power.
These event driven applications will continue to utilise existing legacy, lower cost architectures like VME or cPCI. Data driven applications will require the high speed and intensive computing power enabled by the VPX architecture.
Data driven applications include (but are not limited to) radar processing or intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance and multi-function digital display processors.
