Pixus Technologies has announced OpenVPX backplanes designed for horizontal-mount enclosures.

The horizontal-mount backplanes can be placed into 1U-4U tall 19” rackmount OpenVPX enclosures. They provide enough space to have three 3U slots or one 3U and one 6U slot side-by-side. So, a wide range of configurations and size options are available. The backplanes are typically designed to support at least PCIe Gen3 speeds, but higher-speed options are offered. Versions that accommodate VITA 66 (for optical) or VITA 67 (for RF) through the backplane and SOSA requirements are also optional.
