ROCK-2A Development Platform

3U OpenVPX development platform for the ROCK-2 subsystem

  • slide

Seamless Migration Between ROCK Platforms

The EnsembleSeries ROCK-2A is a 3U OpenVPX development platform for conduction-cooled boards used in the EnsembleSeries ROCK-2 pre-integrated processing subsystems. The ROCK-2A ecosystem features the processing, graphics and I/O building blocks with BuiltSAFE™ technologies, along with a software and tool package, that provide the functions to build your modern mission-critical and avionics application.

The ROCK-2A development platform’s front panel uses commercial connectors for easy accessibility from test and development benches. Both the hardware and software are identical across the ROCK-2 development (ROCK-2A) and rugged airborne (ROCK-2B/C) platforms, allowing migration of your application from one platform to the other without modification.
