Electronics 6U boards Chassis OpenVPX platform

PIXUS TECHNOLOGIES9U RiCool chassis platform for 6U OpenVPX boards features dual hot-swappable 191 CFM fans for cooling up to 2500W. The design allows the use of Rear Transition Modules (RTMs) in all slots.  Rear-pluggable PSU’s provide power for the VPX and custom rails, available in various wattage and output options. The 14-slot design required routing for 28G+ signals across the backplane. This is in excess of the 4 x 25G speeds of 100GbE and the capability of the high-performance RT3 VPX connector. As such, a special high-speed connector was utilized for the 28G+ signals. Unit also required VITA 66.5 and VITA 67.x interfaces for optical and RF through the printed circuit board.
