Pixus Technologies has announced a new chassis platform in the ATR form factor that is aligned with the SOSA Technical Standard. It offers supplemental airflow through the chassis sidewalls and a front loaded configuration.

The first in the series of front-loaded ATRs with supplemental airflow has 6 slots for VITA 48.2 compliant 3U OpenVPX boards and 1 slot for a VITA 62 power supply. The backplane options include various SOSA aligned slot profiles and interfaces for optical and RF interfaces through the backplane. There is also space behind the backplane to mount Pixus’ SlotSaver mezzanine-based SOSA aligned chassis hardware manager.

The ATR058F series features optional fans or air ducting for airflow over the fins in the sidewalls of the enclosure. This allows improved cooling of the system, while keeping the plug-in boards fully sealed. The chassis uses various options for SOSA aligned power supply units that utilise 12V primarily along with some 3.3V AUX. A slot for an external quick-access Solid State Drive (SSD) is also available.

Pixus offers OpenVPX and SOSA aligned configurations for backplane/chassis systems in commercial, development, and MIL rugged formats. The company also provides specialty ruggedised enclosures for standard and customised systems.
