VPX backplanes commonly implement high-speed signal standards such as PCI Express, Serial Rapid I/O, SATA, SAS, and 10-Gbit (XAUI) Ethernet. It’s important to know that when VPX backplanes use these types of signal paths, they require point-to-point connectivity from slot to slot to maintain signal integrity and speed of communication.
