Versatile development enclosures supporting SOSA and OpenVPX
Pixus Technologies has announced that it now offers versatile backplane/chassis configurations geared for 3U and 6U OpenVPX and SOSA development. The versatile development enclosures start with a line of 1-slot power and ground backplanes in various 3U and 6U configurations. This includes VITA 65 (standard VPX), VITA 66.4 (VPX with optical), and VITA 67.3 types (VPX with RF).
Series of single slot development OpenVPX backplanes
Pixus Technologies, a provider of embedded computing and enclosure solutions, has announced that it now offers 3U and 6U OpenVPX power and ground backplanes in several configurations. With the SOSA/HOST and the move to optical and RF interfaces over OpenVPX, Pixus has developed multiple styles that allow for versatility in prototyping.
RiCase electronics enclosure cases with stackable feature
Pixus Technologies, a provider of embedded computing and enclosure solutions, has announced that it now offers a configuration of its RiCase electronics enclosures that are well suited for stacking. The instrumentation cases have interlacing tabs that provide a secure connection ensuring that stacked units do not fall.
Chassis slot baffles from Pixus for controlling airflow
Pixus Technologies has announced that it now offers electronic enclosure air slot baffles for controlling the amount of airflow for an individual backplane slot. The air blockers can be employed in OpenVPX designs or other Eurocard standards such as VME/64x, CompactPCI, cPCI Serial, and more.
Rugged rackmount chassis for longer OpenVPX modules
Pixus Technologies has announced that it now offers MIL-rugged rackmount chassis enclosures that support deeper modules than the standard 160mm depth of OpenVPX. Many designers utilise OpenVPX or its general mechanicals for their designs.
New OpenVPX air slot blocker boards
Pixus Technologies, a provider of embedded computing and enclosure solutions, has announced that it now offers plug-in boards for blocking the airflow in an otherwise empty OpenVPX slot. They come in 3U and 6U sizes in the 5HP (1.0”) width commonly used in the backplane architecture.
Backplanes with KVPX connectors for extreme environments
Pixus Technologies has offered a various OpenVPX backplanes utilizing the ultra-rugged KVPX connector. This type of connector is often used in the harshest Aerospace applications.
All-metal slim handles for OpenVPX boards
Pixus Technologies, a provider of embedded computing and enclosure solutions, has announced new handles for OpenVPX boards or custom embedded computer boards in an all-metal design. The Pixus All-Metal Slim Type X Handle features a long thin metal lever for maximum leverage.
Chassis facilitates multiple backplane architectures
Pixus Technologies has introduced a highly versatile 5.25” tall chassis that accepts 3U or 6U boards mounted horizontally of various backplane types. With Pixus’ modular design that accepts various card guide and rail options, one can incorporate OpenVPX, cPCI Serial, VME64x or other Eurocard architectures in the new horizontal mount chassis.
Mid-sized OpenVPX development chassis for RF modules
Pixus Technologies has announced a new version of the VPXD1000 series that allows various VITA 67 slot configurations for RF interfaces over OpenVPX. The chassis can be partitioned for a separate segment for specialty RF devices or your SOSA (Sensor Open Systems Architecture) implementation.
RiCool chassis platform features OpenVPX 6U backplanes
Pixus Technologies, a provider of embedded computing and enclosure solutions, has announced a new RiCool chassis configurations for 9-slot and 16-slot OpenVPX backplanes in the 6U height.
Hybrid development chassis features mix of optical connectors
Pixus Technologies is now offering a 6U OpenVPX chassis platform with a mix of VITA 66.4 optical connectors and VITA 67.3 RF connectors. The open frame chassis features a 6-slot 6U OpenVPX backplane with the RF and optical connector cutouts. The specialty connectors can optionally be installed by Pixus.
Horizontal-mount OpenVPX chassis platforms
Provider of embedded computing and enclosure solutions, Pixus Technologies, has announced new OpenVPX enclosures that allow boards to be mounted horizontally. The horizontal loading approach saves rack height for small slot count systems. The first in the series of EUR19VPX OpenVPX horizontal-mount chassis platforms from Pixus Technologies is a 2U high enclosure.
High rackmount chassis with range of rugged features
Provider of embedded computing and enclosure solutions, Pixus Technologies, is now offering a 2U high rackmount MicroTCA chassis holding a versatile range of AdvancedMCs. The 2U MicroTCA chassis comes with one MCH (MicroTCA Carrier Hub) slot and seven AdvancedMCs (AMCs) standard. The backplane supports 40GbE and PCIe Gen3 speed signals.
Thick rugged faceplates for embedded boards
Pixus Technologies, a provider of embedded computing and enclosure solutions, has released new OpenVPX faceplates for rugged applications. The new 6U OpenVPX panels feature an extra thick extrusion, providing both rigidity and the ability to attach helicoils on the faceplate.
