LCR Embedded Systems has released two VPX development and evaluation chassis for 3U and 6U systems. The DK3 and DK6 feature enhanced flexibility, fast conversion between air and conduction cooled module support, as well as fast backplane replacement. The chassis’ modular design enables reconfiguration through every stage of development leading up to the deployable chassis.

 Part of a family of development chassis, the DK3 and DK6 open frame benchtop designs include backplane, power supply, push/pull fan cooling and rear transition slots in support of a variety of test functions. These chassis are well suited for single VPX module development or full system level integration and testing.

 Two base versions are available for development of either 3U or 6U modules. Standard configurations may include power and ground backplanes, or application specific VPX or SOSA-aligned versions with up to 12 slots, depending on pitch requirements. Combinations of air and conduction cooled card guides and power supplies to support a range of module types and power requirements are also available. All LCR development systems can be configured with VPX, VME, cPCI or cPCI Serial backplanes.
