6U VPX chassis with fibre optic I/O
Manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, VadaTech, has announced the VTX350. The VTX350 is a 6U VPX chassis with up to twelve 6U VPX slots and provision for dual power modules ideal for field deployment. The chassis can accept 0.8, 0.85 and 1.0” pitch modules.
The initial backplane provides eight 6U VPX payload slots, fully compliant to VITA 46.0 baseline specification with additional support to the RTMs, compliant to VITA 46.10 and OpenVPX VITA65. In addition, an optional chassis manager (VPX980) can include a JTAG Switch Module (JSM) with JTAG routed to payload slots.
Each payload slot supports up to six VITA 66.5 12-way fibre modules for high density fibre I/O. The chassis includes provision for fibre management and stress relief, making it suitable for high-speed, high-I/O applications such as EW and multi-mode radar. Chassis construction meets shock and vibration requirements per MIL-STD-810G.
The VTX350 requires airflow to be provided by the cabinet, and includes provision for airflow management over payload, power and switch/manager modules.
