Over the last several years, many large government and industrial customers of communication systems have been requesting the purveyors of RF receivertransmitter equipment, signal digitization and conversion equipment, and signal processing equipment to standardize on a single interconnect methodology. It is desirable to standardize the format of the digital IF used in these systems so that a marketplace of interoperable products can serve the SIGINT, Aerospace and other communications-oriented communities. In 2004, an industry group led by Mercury Computer and DRS-Signal Solutions solicited participation from experienced companies in the signal acquisition and high performance computing community and met with some prominent customers of this technology. The result was an initiative to work on a standard to be adopted by the VMEbus Trade Organization VITA widely respected in this community. The resulting on-going effort is VITA Standard 49.
