Rugged chassis with six AMC slots withstands shock
Manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards and application-ready platforms, VadaTech, has announced the VT954, a rugged 1U chassis used in Mil/Aero or other applications that need to withstand shock/vibration. The lightweight aluminium chassis construction provides six single module mid-size AMC slots.
For front panel retention, there is a single MicroTCA.1 screw on the opposite side of the ejector handle on each module slot. The chassis offers dual redundant PSUs, hot-swappable from the rear of the chassis. In addition, the VT954 is designed to meet Vibration specification MIL-STD-167-1A (Type 1) and Shock Class I, as defined by MIL-S-901D.
The chassis comes equipped with provisions for rails for rackmount environments. The front-to-rear cooling of the chassis utilises the VadaTech 3rd generation MCH (UTC004 product) for its shelf manager, crossbar clocking for low jitter, GPS/IEEE1588/SyncE/NTP.
The VT954 has dual 10/40GbE as well as dual GbE to each slot. There are also dual QSFP+ to the front panel. The VT954 backplane provides direct connection between adjacent AMC slots on ports two to three and on ports 12 to 20.
