Pixus to Exhibit New RF Chassis Platforms at 2019 International Microwave Symposium

Pixus Technologies, a provider of embedded enclosure solutions, will be exhibiting new OpenVPX chassis with RF interfaces and a rugged SDR at the 2019 International Microwave Symposium in Boston, MA.

As the Microwave/RF industry moves to more open standard architectures, prototyping/test systems will be required for fast and efficient product development. Pixus will be displaying one of their new VITA 67 open frame test/dev chassis for OpenVPX. The VITA 67 specification defines RF signaling across the open standard backplane architecture. The versatile Pixus chassis allows either 3U or 6U boards of various configurations to be tested.

Pixus will also display a rugged Software Defined Radio (SDR) based on X310 from Ettus Research, a National Instruments brand.  The weatherproof, rugged enclosure features IP67 sealing for water and dust ingress.  The Pixus RX310 contains two extended bandwidth daughterboard slots covering 10 MHz – 6 GHz with up to 160 MHz of baseband bandwidth, dual 1/10 GigE high-speed interfaces, and a large user-programmable Kintex-7 FPGA.  The RX310 series can be used in various types of airborne, shipboard, ground vehicle, or outdoor designs.    

With a line of modular instrumentation cases, Pixus will also have a couple of examples of their Vario and RiCase style enclosures. The versatile enclosures allow various sizes and configurations to be utilized in a vast array of applications.
