Pixus Technologies, a provider of embedded computing and enclosure solutions, now offers new 3U OpenVPX backplane configurations in 2, 3, 6, 13, and 16 slot versions per the VITA 65 specification. There are also some versions aligned with the SOSA technical standard.
The first in the series of new OpenVPX backplanes is a 2-slot design with a BKP3-DIS02-15.2.8 routing profile. The design supports speeds up to 40GbE and PCIe Gen3. The size is attractive for small form factor Air Transport Racks, development systems, or other compact systems. Options with and without the RTM connectors and VITA 62 power supply slots installed are available.
Pixus offers SOSA aligned and OpenVPX backplanes, enclosures, and chassis managers. The company also provides enclosure designs in other architectures including cPCI Serial/CompactPCI, ATCA/MicroTCA, VME64x/VME, and custom designs.
