The VXS VITA 41-based mesh architecture has a bandwidth that can reportedly deliver 112/5 Gbytes/sec of aggregate throughput within the processing mesh in a single chassis. It was designed as a new standard to define alternative backplane topologies for the company. The company has also introduced a 12-slot backplane to implement the product that was developed to enable a switch/processor mesh technology for applications requiring multiple boards for application processing.
The FDA has just released draft guidelines for using 3D printing in the design, development, and manufacture of regulated medical products. Although the recommendations are non-binding, they do set some much-needed parameters.
