3U VPX rugged enclosure for UAVs and other mission-critical airborne applications introduced by Dawn VME

FREMONT, Calif., 22 Sept. 2010. Dawn VME Products in Fremont, Calif., is introducing a ruggedized four-slot conduction-cooled rugged enclosure for 3U VPX modules called the CCE-3VX4 VPX Cube for unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), land, sea, and airborne mission-critical conditions. Dawn's CCE-3VX4 VPX Cube is designed to MIL-STD-810F, DO-160E, and MIL-STD-461E standards, and complies with VITA 46 (VPX), VITA 48 (REDI) and VITA 65 (OpenVPX) specifications.

The VPX Cube features four slots of 3U VPX on a 1-inch pitch high bandwidth backplane and an integrated, wide temperature range 400 Watt power supply. The chassis is cold plate base coupled conduction cooled, and operates in temperatures from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius.

The backplane is Fabric Mapping Module (FMM) overlay ready. Front I/O mapping overlay enables signal path customization from card I/O, such as PMC and XMC, to front panel I/O interface connectors. The I/O panel to backplane is interfaced via shielded differential connectors for applications from 3.125 to 10 gigabytes per second.

Dawn's RuSHTM system health monitor technology for intelligent, precision monitoring and control of critical system performance parameters is embedded in the integrated power supply in the standard VPX Cube configuration.
