ELMA ELECTRONIC CompacFrame platform accommodates a 5-slot VITA 48.8 air flow-through (AFT) backplane. The Type 39A unit is aligned to SOSA and accommodates 3U plug-in cards (PICs) housed in 1.5” wide modules, according to VITA 48.8. Available in multiple configurations, the development platforms assist in testing and application development for a range of critical embedded environments. With the addition of the new 5-slot AFT backplane as standard, thE unit facilitates air flow-through card and system design implementations and testing for sensor payloads, electronic warfare (EW) and C5ISR as well as for target tracking and display, navigation systems and threat detection.
