VPX chassis meets ANSI/VITA 65 standard, says VadaTech
An 8U VPX chassis, the VTX660, has six 3U slots and rear transition module (RTM) support. It has been introduced by VadaTech. It can accept 0.8-inch, 0.85-inch and 1.0-inch pitch modules and is particularly suitable for development and deployment. The chassis can support 95W per slot with dual universal AC input power supplies to provide 800W with redundancy (1+1), or dual DC -48V input 650W. An optional JTAG switch module (JSM) to provide JTAG access via the rear of the chassis.
The VTX660 is designed to meet the ANSI/VITA 65 standard. It provides front to back push/pull cooling (18 CFM per slot at 0.24 in-H2O at 5000 feet) to the VPX payload and RTM slots. The backplane provides five 3U VPX payload slots in a star configuration, with a single slot for switch such as VPX004 with integrated platform management. The chassis complies to VITA 46.0 baseline specification with additional support to the RTMs, complies to VITA 46.10 and OpenVPX VITA 65. The chassis is optionally available with KVPX series rugged connectors.
