Computing Power + Flight-Worthiness Capabilities for Airborne Applications

The RIOV-2478 is a 3U OpenVPX™ single board computer for airborne applications requiring conduction cooling. It combines a multi-core processor with advanced interconnect high-speed links and an onboard crosspoint switch. The crosspoint switch has payload profile flexibility to support of PCIe®, GbE and 10GbE over OpenVPX and XMC architectures.



Lower Malfunction Risk and Save Resources

Mercury’s proven 3U avionics modules accelerate safety-critical applications like AI machine vision and augmented reality, expedite the certification process, save aircraft resources and speed subsystem time to market.
