This case study showcases Mistral’s expertise
in the architecture and design of a custom
hybrid system that supports two industry standard
bus architectures VME and VPX.
The Customer
The Requirement
Solution Provided
A leading Defense Lab selected Mistral to design, build and integrate a system
capableoffunctioningasaSignalandDataProcessing(SDP)Rack.
The customer’s requirement was to design and integrate a solution that met
their overall functional/performance criteria and adhered to longevity, product
lifecyclemanagementandintegrationnorms.
Mistral is a professional design services company with extensive experience
in embedded hardware and software development for Mil-Aero applications.
This capability, in conjunction with partnerships with leading embedded
solution providers like Curtiss Wright Controls Defense Solutions and Wind
River Systems, enabled Mistral to provide a complete solution to meet the
customerexpectations.

The rack had to be equipped with:
Quad Power PC and Intel based processing system
Quad channel sFPDP module mounted on VPX board capable of
communication using sFPDP protocol
VPX based Gigabit Ethernet Switch
Provision for Redundant Power Supply
Power Supplies for the entire rack. Circuit breakers and protection
circuitry to be provided to prevent damage to the electronics housed
in the rack
The rack had to be mounted with LEDs, to indicate the health of the
power supplies and the fans.
Introduction
TheSignalandDataProcessing(SDP)Rack isoneofthesub-systemsinthe
radar network which provides resources for radar signal processing, data
capturinganddatarecordingwithotherradarcontrolfunctions.
This Case Study highlights Mistral’s expertise in the architecture and
design of a custom hybrid system that supports two industry standard bus
architectures VME and VPX, to meet the requirements of input /output
signals, communication links, processing capability and data transfer
capability.

The VPX based chassis consists of 6U VPX cards and VME cards. To
accommodate this, the chassis was equipped with custom hybrid backplane,
designed by Mistral and its solution partner adhering to VPX and VME
standards.Thebackplanehas12VPXslotsand2VMEslots.
DesignServicesandSystemIntegration:
Mistral was involved in the design and development of the entire system from
the initial phase of system architecting, to component selection, system
engineeringandvalidation.Thesolutionofferedincluded:
SystemDesign
System Study with report generation to ensure all the operational
environmental conditions and performance requirements were
met. This included the complete 3D computer modeling of the system,
system power consumption calculations, system cooling calculations,
system structural analysis, system thermal analysis and external/

Design and fabrication of 14-slot hybrid backplane comprising of VPX and
VMEbusarchitecture
VPX backplane had to incorporate half mesh fabric connection while
maintaininghighlevelofsignalintegrity
Conformance to environmental conditions including thermal management,
structural rigidity, EMI/EMC conformance.
Complete integration of the COTS that used two industry standard bus
architectures VPX and VME. The system was realized with two different
operating platforms (Linux and VxWorks)
Power ON sequencing, temperature monitoring and control inside the SDP
Rack
Establishing optical links for sFPDP, Fiber Channel and Gigabit Ethernet for
externalandinternalnetwork
The integrated SDP rack was qualified i.e. EMI / EMC tests and
environmental tests carried out as an integrated system instead of
qualifying the individual sub-systems. System designed adhered to the
requirementsofJSS55555and Specifications.
A multi-vendor selection of best-of-breed sub-systems was made available
as an integrated system through a single system integrator; who not only
provided the solution but would also provide support and maintenance for
thecomingyears
Shortened customer’s end-to-end product development cycle and ensured
on-timedeploymentschedule
A fully integrated deployable solution, compliant with functional and
environmentalstandardswasmadeavailable.

DesignServicesandSystemIntegration: Mistral was involved in the design and development of the entire system from the initial phase of system architecting, to component selection, system engineeringandvalidation.Thesolutionofferedincluded: SystemDesign System Study with report generation to ensure all the operational environmental conditions and performance requirements were met. This included the complete 3D computer modeling of the system, system power consumption calculations, system cooling calculations, system structural analysis, system thermal analysis and external/ internalcableharness HardwareDesign Designanddevelopmentof: RuggedAircooledRack HybridBackplanehaving12VPXslotsand2VMEslots RedundantPowersupplies Completecableharnessdesign Integration Integration of all boards within the system; and establishing functional capabilities of base card, inter and intra-system communication, GigE network establishment, Inter Processor Communication with inter- and intra-systemdependencies : : : : : : : : : : : ! : ! # # # # : ! ! ! : ! ! : : : : : : : : : : IntegrationandtestingofCOTSandcustomdesignedhardware Integrationofdrivers,BSPandDSPlibraries VerificationandValidation Design and validation of the rack for a high-power application, with thermalmanagement.

Design and fabrication of 14-slot hybrid backplane comprising of VPX and VMEbusarchitecture VPX backplane had to incorporate half mesh fabric connection while maintaininghighlevelofsignalintegrity Conformance to environmental conditions including thermal management, structural rigidity, EMI/EMC conformance. Complete integration of the COTS that used two industry standard bus architectures VPX and VME. The system was realized with two different operating platforms (Linux and VxWorks) Power ON sequencing, temperature monitoring and control inside the SDP Rack Establishing optical links for sFPDP, Fiber Channel and Gigabit Ethernet for externalandinternalnetwork The integrated SDP rack was qualified i.e. EMI / EMC tests and environmental tests carried out as an integrated system instead of qualifying the individual sub-systems. System designed adhered to the requirementsofJSS55555and Specifications. A multi-vendor selection of best-of-breed sub-systems was made available as an integrated system through a single system integrator; who not only provided the solution but would also provide support and maintenance for thecomingyears Shortened customer’s end-to-end product development cycle and ensured on-timedeploymentschedule A fully integrated deployable solution, compliant with functional and environmentalstandardswasmadeavailable.
