Pixus Technologies introduces OpenVPX backplanes for 6U applications
February 27, 2019 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
February 27, 2019 – Pixus Technologies, a provider of embedded computing and enclosure solutions, has released new OpenVPX backplanes for 6U applications.
The designs include a nine-slot, six-slot power and ground, five-slot, and a single-slot development backplane.
The five-slot 6U OpenVPX backplane has a BKP6-CEN05-11.2.5 profile. It features PCIe Gen3 speed performance.
For development applications, Pixus offers power and ground-only backplanes. This allows signals to pass through to the rear transition modules (RTMs) for easy prototyping and de-bugging. These backplanes come in single-slot and six-slot versions. The one-slot version also features an interface for a VITA 62 power supply. The Pixus roadmap includes a 6U, 16-slot OpenVPX backplane using a fully loaded system.
