Pixus OpenVPX backplanes support SOSA slot profiles
Pixus Technologies has developed a selection of 3U and 6U OpenVPX backplanes with multiple slot profile configurations that align with the SOSA Technical Standard.
The Pixus backplane designs come in 5 to 16 slot configurations with various combinations of SOSA (Sensor Open System Architecture) -aligned slot profiles. The 3U size is the most common size, together with the backplane speed of 100GbE (typically four lanes x 25Gbaud per second). The slot profiles have multiple configurations of routing options for compute intensive, single board computing (SBC), timing, switching and peripheral boards. The Pixus backplanes often include interfaces for the company’s rear pluggable mezzanine-based SOSA aligned hardware chassis management card.
Pixus also offers SOSA aligned enclosure solutions, including MIL rugged rackmount and ATR (answer to reset) format designs. Other backplanes, chassis, and specialty boards are available in other MOSA (Modular Open Systems Architecture) and customised versions.
Pixus Technologies specialises in electronics packaging. Founded in 2009 by senior management from Kaparel, a Rittal company, Pixus Technologies’ embedded backplanes and systems are focused primarily on ATCA, OpenVPX, MicroTCA, and custom designs. Pixus also has an extensive offering of VME-based and cPCI-based solutions.
In May 2011, Pixus Technologies became the sole authorised North and South American supplier of the electronic packaging products previously offered by Kaparel and Rittal.
