VXS (VME Switched Serial) represents an extension of the VME family according to VITA 41.0. This system is downward-compatible, so that assemblies with VME 96-pin connectors can still be used, while adopting the use of serial signals such as Gigabit Ethernet, PCI Express, Serial RapidI/O, and other fabrics.
VXS uses a straightforward Star or Dual Star centralized architecture with defined pinouts for interoperability. VXS uses the MultiGig RT 2 connector for P0 connector. Transmission speed for VXS is 2.5 GByte for each pair of cards
