Offering up to 8 OpenVPX slots in a 1.0” pitch, an open frame chassis platform for OpenVPX backplanes has been introduced by Pixus Technologies. The VPXD0800 also supports other standard backplane architectures and the modular card guides can be spaced in any 0.2” increments, allowing various slot pitches to be utilised. There is also an option for conduction-cooled module card guides.
Pixus provides VPX backplanes in several slot sizes and configurations with the VPXD0800. The company also offers custom backplane designs, even in lower quantities. The VPXD0800 has AC or DC PSU options up to 900W and includes a convenient carry handle. Low cost PSUs designed to VITA 62 for VPX systems are also available.
A version of the VPXD0800 for 3U sized boards is currently in design.
