Approved American National Standard
ANSI/VITA 60.0
Alternative Connector for VPX
Abstract
This standard, VITA 60.0 Alternative Connector for VPX, provides an alternate connector
to the one specified in the VITA 46.0 VPX Baseline Standard. Because the 46.0 and the
60.0 connectors are not intermateable, a VITA 60.0 module will not plug into a VITA
46.0.0 backplane and vice versa. However, the VITA 60.0 standard provides VPX users
with the flexibility to choose a VPX module and backplane connector combination for their
specific application requirements.


Approved February 2012
American National Standards Institute, Inc.





American
National
Standard
Approval of an American National Standard requires verification by
ANSI that the requirements for due process, consensus, and other criteria
for approval have been met by the standards developer.

Consensus is established when, in the judgment of the ANSI Board of
Standards Review, substantial agreement has been reached by directly
and materially affected interests. Substantial agreement means much
more than a simple majority, but not necessarily unanimity. Consensus
requires that all views and objections be considered, and that a concerted
effort be made toward their resolution.

The use of American National Standards is completely voluntary; their
existence does not in any respect preclude anyone, whether he has
approved the standards or not, from manufacturing, marketing,
purchasing, or using products, processes, or procedures not conforming
to the standards.
The American National Standards Institute does not develop standards
and will in no circumstances give an interpretation of any American
National Standard. Moreover, no person shall have the right or authority
to issue an interpretation of an American National Standard in the name
of the American National Standard Institute. Requests for interpretations
should be addressed to the secretariat or sponsor whose name appears on
the title page of this standard.

CAUTION NOTICE: This American National Standard may be revised
or withdrawn at any time. The procedures of the American National
Standards Institute require that action be taken periodically to reaffirm,
revise, or withdraw this standard. Purchases of American National
Standards may receive current information on all standard by calling or
writing the American National Standards Institute.


NOTE The users attention is called to the possibility that compliance with this standard may require use
of an invention covered by patent rights.

By publication of this standard, no position is taken with respect to the validity of this claim or of any patent
rights in connection therewith. The patent holder has, however, filed a statement of willingness to grant a
license under these rights on reasonable and nondiscriminatory terms and conditions to applicants desiring to
obtain such a license. Details may be obtained from the standards developer.

Abstract
This standard, VITA 60.0 Alternate Connector for VPX, provides an alternative connector to the one
specified in the VITA 46.0 VPX Baseline Standard. Because the 46.0 and the 60.0 connectors are not
intermateable, a VITA 60.0 module will not plug into a VITA 46.0.0 backplane and vice versa.
However, the VITA 60.0 standard provides VPX users with the flexibility to choose a VPX module
and backplane connector combination for their specific application requirements
Foreword
VME has been the de-facto bus standard for Commercial off the Shelf (COTS ) Circuit Card
Assemblies since the 1980s. VME boards have proven to be remarkably capable of evolving to
support newer technologies with innovations such as VME Subsystem Bus, PCI Mezzanine Cards
(PMCs) and VME320.
However, advances in technologies, particularly in interconnects, have demonstrated the need for an
advance in system development. This advance needs to accommodate high speed interconnect,
particularly serial interconnects, and higher power delivery in concert with better heat removal.
This standard addresses these needs in the context of IEEE 1101 form factor modules. Other
specifications may address alternate outlines, such as VITA-48.
Because electronics miniaturization is driving the plug-in module I/O count, most system
interconnects will need:
! Multi-gigabit differential technology
! Core computing cluster switched fabrics
! Serial RapidIO, PCI Express, Hypertransport, Inifiniband or 10G Ethernet
! Sufficient ports to enable distributed switching or centralized switching
The plethora of high-speed interfaces available for tomorrows plug-in modules include:
! Network interfaces
! Digital video
! Mass storage interface
! FPGA-based inter-board connections
! Custom sensor interfaces
VITA 60.0 provides an intermountable alternate to the VITA 46.0 connector for VME users:
! To leverage the broad spectrum of high-speed interconnect technologies
! Backward compatibility with VME bus electrical, software and selected mechanicals
! Enables heterogeneous architectures which preserve existing investments in COTS-based
systems
! Addresses both 3U and 6U form factors
! Harsh environment fit designed-in up front in the standard
! Rugged air or conduction-cooled form factors
! High value placed on rear-panel I/O
! High-speed connector survivability/compliance

6

! Connector with ESD protection and options for handling covers to accommodate 2-level
maintenance.
! Space constrained high compute density applications
Other Defense and Aerospace market needs are also under consideration. Standards Innovation is the
COTS Industrys Most Compelling Value Proposition.

1 Introduction
VITA 60.0 provides an alternative connector to the one specified in VITA 46.0, VPX Baseline
Standard. Because the 46.0 and the 60.0 connectors are not intermateable a VITA 60.0 module will
not plug into a VITA 46.0 backplane and vice versa. However, the VITA 60.0 standard provides
VPX users with the flexibility to choose a VPX module and backplane connector combination for
their specific application requirements.
This document provides a standard mechanical format for standardization of switched serial
interconnects for VMEbus applications, with specific concern taken to allow deployment in
ruggedized environments. There are many candidate technologies for switched serial interconnects.
These include without limitation: Ethernet through 10 GBit, Fibre Channel, InfiniBand, Serial
RapidIO, PCI Express, Hypertransport, Infiniband and others. Each technology has its pros and
cons, and the market will determine which ones will ultimately survive. The data plane proposed
defines a playing field on which users may implement their preferred serial interconnect.
1.1 Objectives
The objectives of this standard are:
! Define a 6U and 3U Eurocard format family of plug-in modules suitable for ruggedized use
utilizing the VITA 60.0 interconnects.
! Define a scalable high-speed connector that can bridge from < 1 Gbps up to 10 Gbps data
rates.
! Maintain current VITA 46.0 mechanical standardization format for referenced switched serial
interconnect technologies.
! Make provision for additional I/O capability at the plug-in module level including RF and
Optical interconnects.
! Maintain current VITA 46.0 option of two level maintenance capable Line Replaceable
Modules.
1.2 VITA 60.0 Overview
The VITA 60.0 standard is a supplement to the VITA 46.0 family of standards outlining only the
areas of dissimilarity to the base standard. Alternate Connector for VPX is the name given to this
standard.
For reference purposes, at the time of publication the following protocol standards had been
defined. Please consult VITA for a current list. VITA 46.0
The VITA 60.0 base standard includes features drawn from IEEE 1101.1 and IEEE 1101.2 (for air
cooled and conduction cooled plug-in modules, respectively). These features are evident in the
mechanical drawings provided.
The VITA 60.0 base standard defines physical features that enable high-speed communication in a
compliant system. These features include: a 6U by 160mm by 4HP pitch Eurocard format board with

9

high speed differential connectors, a 6U by 160mm by 4HP pitch Eurocard format board with a
combination of high speed differential and single-ended connectors, and the backplane/chassis
infrastructure needed to support these features. The base standard also defines similar physical
features for 3U by 160mm by 4HP pitch Eurocard format, providing the same two types of connector
options discussed above for 6U plug-in modules. Many features called for in the base specification
will be compatible with the requirements of other standards, such as VITA-48, but this standard
concerns only the IEEE 1101 compatible applications.
This base standard also defines alignment and keying features used to protect the connector system.
The base standard does not address the possible serial fabric configurations available in systems
which utilize the standard.
While the base standard does not address the use of ANSI/VITA-1.1 or VITA-41 plug-in modules, or
modules which are constructed to the mechanical requirements of VITA-48, chassis and backplanes
can be constructed which provide compatibility with plug-in modules built to these standards. The dot
specifications allow the use of the single-ended connector allocation for parallel busses, such as VME
or PCI, completing the compatibility between older standards and this one.
1.3 Terminology
1.3.1 Specification Key Words
To avoid confusion and to make very clear what the requirements for compliance are, many of the
paragraphs in this standard are labeled with keywords that indicate the type of information they
contain. These keywords are listed below:
! Rule
! Recommendation
! Suggestion
! Permission
! Observation
Any text not labeled with one of these keywords should be interpreted as descriptive in nature. These
will be written in either a descriptive or a narrative style.
The keywords are used as follows:

10

Rule <chapter>-<number>:
Rules form the basic framework of this standard. They are sometimes expressed in text form and
sometimes in the form of figures, tables or drawings. All rules shall be followed to ensure
compatibility between board and backplane designs. All rules use the shall or shall not words to
emphasize the importance of the rule. The shall or shall not words are reserved exclusively for
stating rules in this standard and are not used for any other purpose.
Recommendation <chapter>-<number>:
Wherever a recommendation appears, designers would be wise to take the advice given. Doing
otherwise might result in poor performance or awkward problems. Recommendations found in this
standard are based on experience and are provided to designers to speed their traversal of the learning
curve. All recommendations use the should or should not words to emphasize the importance of
the recommendation. The should or should not words are reserved exclusively for stating
recommendations in this standard and are not used for any other purpose.
Suggestion <chapter>-<number>:
A suggestion contains advice, which is helpful but not vital. The reader is encouraged to consider the
advice before discarding it. Some design decisions that need to be made are difficult until experience
has been gained. Suggestions are included to help a designer who has not yet gained this experience.
Permission <chapter>-<number>:
In some cases a rule does not specifically prohibit a certain design approach, but the reader might be
left wondering whether that approach might violate the spirit of the rule or whether it might lead to
some subtle problem. Permissions reassure the reader that a certain approach is acceptable and will
cause no problems. All permissions use the may words to emphasize the importance of the
permission. The lower-case may words are reserved exclusively for stating permissions in this
standard and are not used for any other purpose.
Observation <chapter>-<number>:
Observations do not offer any specific advice. They usually follow naturally from what has just been
discussed. They spell out the implications of certain rules and bring attention to things that might
otherwise be overlooked. They also give the rationale behind certain rules so that the reader
understands why the rule must be followed.

2 VITA 60.0 Compliance
This section is meant as a guide to designers of VITA 60.0-format plug-in modules, backplanes, and
systems to the major elements of the VITA 60.0 standard. Specific requirements for mandatory and
optional elements are defined in sections 3 through 7.
VITA 60.0 compliant plug-in modules and backplanes incorporate the following major features:
! Connectors which meet the requirements of this standard
! Connectors in sets which meet the requirements of this standard
! Keying and alignment mechanism for all slots which meet the requirements of this standard
! Adherence to the VITA 46.0-defined power rails Vs1, Vs2, Vs3, 3.3V_AUX, +/-12V_AUX
! Adherence to the VITA 46.0-defined utility signals: Geographical Address pins, Reference
Clock, Bussed Reserved for Future Use (RFU) differential pair, JTAG connections, System
Management signals, Non-Volatile Memory Read Only (NVMRO) signal, SYSRESET*, P1
Reserved Bussed signals, and P1 Reserved for Future Use (RFU) signals.
! Fabric provisioning for one or more of the various protocol layer standards
Recommendation 2-1: As many of the target applications for equipment defined by this standard fall
within conditions covered by ANSI/VITA 47, vendors should consider offering equipment compliant
with appropriate sections of the ANSI/VITA 47 standard.
3 System
This section is the same as section 3 of the VITA 46.0 standard.
4 Common Requirements
4.1 Overview
This section is the same as Section 4.1 of the VITA 46.0 standard. Changes to the Figures mentioned
in the Appendices have been made to the applicable VITA 60.0 configurations for 3U and 6U
implementations.
4.2 Connectors
This section highlights the major differences between the VITA 46.0 multi-module construction and
the monolithic VITA 60.0 construction for a daughtercard connector.
While meeting the basic P0 P2 for a 3U and P0 P6 for a 6U with guidance modules as shown in
Figure 4-1, the VITA 60.0 construction comes as a single part number, not as a series of individual
P_ components. Please Reference Tables 5-1 and 6-1 for the applicable catalog part numbers that
meet the rules for Section 4.2 in the VITA 46.0 standard.

14

Figure 4-1: VITA 60.0 Connector Identification for 3U and 6U Modules


15

Figure 4-2: Connector Identification for 3U and 6U Modules


16

Rule 4-1: VITA 60.0 plug-in modules shall utilize a single 8-wafer 7-Row connector section in
addition to between two and six 16-wafer 7-Row (or equivalent) connector sections assembled onto
a contiguous stiffener assembly as shown in Figure 4-1. The number of 16-wafer sections depends
on the size of the module and the possible incorporation of alternate user defined connector
implementations.
Rule 4-2: The connectors on a plug-in module shall be numbered as shown in Figure 4-2. Alignment
key 1 is at the top of the plug-in module assembly, adjacent to connector P0.
Observation 4-1: Figure 4-2 shows a view from the front, looking at the backplane. The use of P
suggests that the nomenclature is for the plug-in module; the backplane would be denoted with J
numbers. Note the relationship of the module PCB to the connectors.
Rule 4-3: P0 shall utilize an 8-wafer connector section.
Rule 4-4: The 8-wafer section in P0 shall be loaded with three Power wafers, in positions one, two
and three. See Section 4.8.1.
Rule 4-5: The 8-wafer section in P0 shall be loaded with three of the single-ended 5-signal/4-ground
style wafers, in positions four, five and six.
The single-ended contacts are to be used for routine low speed or non-differential housekeeping
functions, like geographical addressing and system management functions.
Rule 4-6: In P0, differential odd and even wafers shall be used in positions seven and eight.
Rule 4-7: In P0, unused differential connections provided shall be reserved for future use.
4.3 Form Factor and Outline
This section is the same as section 4.3 of the VITA 46.0 standard with the exception of the addition of
the following observation.
Observation 4-2: Figure 4-3 shows a view from the top of the backplane connector. The VITA 60.0
keying method involves insulator tangs that extend into the keying area and must be considered keep-
out areas for component placement. Detailed dimensions are available in Appendix B.
4.4 Alignment and Keying
4.4.1 Background and Assumptions
The VITA 60.0 keying method consists of a flat face on the backplane-side alignment and keying pin
that must line up with a matching flat face on the inside of a hole in the alignment-keying device on
the plug-in module. See Figure 4-3 for a pictorial representation of the VITA 60.0 keying system.

17

Figure 4-3: VITA 60.0 Keying System

4.4.1.1 Philosophy
The VITA 60.0 keying method provides 512 unique key settings on a 6U card and 64 unique key
settings on a 3U card. With this basic octal keying system, there are enough keying options to define
settings for backplane fabric types, parallel bus types, and daughter card connector types, and leave
the user with plenty of key settings to differentiate between modules within a given system.
4.4.1.2 Backplane Key
The angular position of the flat face on the backplane keying pin is controlled by inserting the keying
pin into the backplane module octagon in any position required by the user. There is no requirement
to notch or otherwise alter the round mounting hole in the backplane PWB. Keying positions of the
backplane pins can be changed in the field by the user.
4.4.1.3 Plug-in Module Key
There is a single D-Type key for the VITA 60.0 daughtercard plug-in module. It can be used with
all variations of guidance/ keying blocks in the VITA 60.0 Connector interconnect family. The key

18

has the same octal format as the backplane and can be clocked into position in the factory or by the
end-user.

19

Figure 4-4: VITA 46.0 Equivalent VITA 60.0 Key Nomenclatures

4.4.2 Definitions
This section is the same as section 4.4.2 of the VITA 46.0 standard.
4.4.3 Keying Rules
This section is the same as section 4.4.3 of the VITA 46.0 standard with the following changes to the
rules:
Rule 4-8: For the 6U case, if the High Voltage Power Input used by the plug-in module is
48V, the plug-in module voltage keying device that is installed shall be one of two types - either the
B position or the C position
Rule 4-9: For the 6U case, the preferred angle for the plug-in module voltage keying module for the
48V case is B and this shall be used unless specific system requirements for a user keying range
greater than 25 (6U modules) exist. All standard catalog 48V plug-in modules shall use this setting.
Rule 4-10: For the 6U case, if the high voltage power input used by the plug-in module is
12V, the plug-in module shall have either the A or the H alignment-key installed.
Rule 4-11: For the 6U case, the preferred angle for the plug-in module voltage keying device for the

greater than 25 exist. All standard catalog 12V plug-in modules shall use this setting.
Rule 4-12: For the 6U case, if the plug-in module does not use any high voltage power input (Vs1
and Vs2 are no-connects), the plug-in module keying device that is installed shall be without a D-key
that will mate with a backplane keying pin positioned at any octal position.
Rule 4-13: For the 6U case, the plug-in module voltage keying device of type G shall be reserved for
future use.
Rule 4-14: To facilitate ease of system integration, standard catalog 6U plug-in modules shall be
delivered with keying devices #2 and #3 installed without D-keys, and standard catalog 3U plug-in
modules shall be delivered without D-keys in devices #1 and #2.
Observation 4-3: Users who wish to apply slot-specific keying can do so in the field or at the
assembly stage of the manufacturing process through the use of the D-keys.
