The VPX 19"-Development-Chassis is designed as concept platform for rugged systems trial purposes such as aviation, railway, naval applications and the industry. The standard backplane portfolio will be completed with the display of „VPX” and „CompactPCI serial”. The OpenVPX development chassis a rugged modular aluminum construction for 3U backplanes up to 10 slots at 0.8 or 1.0 inch pitch.
It supports any mix of convection or conduction cooled 3U boards in the front and rear. The card cage is compatible to IEEE 1101.10/11. The chassis allows application and systems developer the access to all sides of the boards and the backplane. For efficient cooling the chassis contains 4x 120 CFM high performance fans placed below the card cage.
