Pixus Technologies has upgraded its 1U MicroTCA enclosure system to PCIe Gen 3. The company will continue to upgrade its various configurations of MicroTCA solutions to the higher-speed standard. The Pixus PXS0108 MicroTCA chassis platform features 6 AMC slots and 1 MCH slot. Various power options are available, including a dual redundant configuration.

The PXS0108 has an active backplane that alleviates the need for expensive power modules. The backplane provides a power manager for each slot that controls and limits the management and payload power to the maximum allowed.

PCIe Gen 3 brings the backplane speed to 8GB/s in single x8 or dual x4 options. Other backplanes are available including 10GbE. The chassis can accept up to 3 full size AMC modules in lieu of the 6 mid size modules.

Pixus offers MicroTCA system platforms and AMCs in various sizes and configurations. The company also provides OpenVPX and AdvancedTCA backplane/chassis systems, boards and components.
