3U OpenVPX backplane design with data rate options up to 40 Gbps
Pixus Technologies’ VPX30 backplanes are compliant with the latest VITA 65 interoperability specifications. The backplanes have data rate options as fast as 40 Gbps, with selectable rear I/O options. While the backplane was designed with five, six, seven, nine, 12, and 18 slots as a standard, other sizes are also available.
The 3U backplane design is customizable and modifiable upon request without nonrecurring engineering costs (NRE), with conformal coating optional; to customize, a minimum order placement is required. Pixus also has several off-the-shelf 3U and 6U VPX configurations. Other VPX derivations include VITA 46 (base VPX), VITA 66 for optical, and VITA 67 for radio frequency (RF). Pixus also provides accessories to use with the backplanes, such as VITA 62 power boards and RTM cables.
