Open Standards

Reduce Time to Market Through Interoperability and Innovation

Open standards are the key to solving many of today’s design challenges in high performance computing applications. It’s why we continually aim to strengthen and grow the embedded computing ecosystem.

Aitech Open Standards

Aitech’s Commitment to Open Standards
Aitech plays an active role in several leading industry standards organizations, including VITA, SOSA, FACE and PICMG, and works in conjunction with our industry partners to build the best rugged solutions for our customers. We understand that the industry’s top contractors, their subsidiaries and a multitude of contractors rely on our expertise and knowledge to get the job done.

Our commitment to open standards technologies spans more than two decades, predating the dawn of VME and continuing to the modern SOSA initiatives we are working on today.  By developing and implementing the most advanced technologies for our customers, while continually embracing an open standards mindset, we aim to strengthen and grow the embedded computing ecosystem.

FACE logo

Helps foster software interoperability across military computing platforms

Aitech knows that as software and hardware integration continue to converge, understanding both sides of the coin is critical to developing systems that will be utilized across different military platforms to support interoperability and foster a greater sense of open standards solutions. We're actively participating in the developing of FACE conformant solutions.

C925 SBC

Promotes the concept of open technology for critical embedded computing; governs both the VME and VPX specifications

As a proud legacy member of VITA for more than two decades, our passion for innovation through open standards is a driving factor in our contributions to VITA Working Groups and developing leading-edge Integrated Systems, SBCs, Ethernet Switches, and more that incorporate VITA’s renowned open standards initiatives.  Aitech delivered the first true military SAVA (Standard Army Vetronics Architecture) compliant, 6U x 160 mm VMEbus SBCs in 1985, a full three years before anyone serving this emerging market.
