Extender modules to test 6U and 3U VPX boards outside the chassis introduced by PCI Systems

SUNNYVALE, Calif., 2 April 2012. PCI Systems Inc. in Sunnyvale, Calif., is introducing a family of 3U and 6U VPX embedded computing extenders for test and measurement of 6U VPX and 3U VPX embedded systems boards outside the chassis. The conduction-cooled extenders also fit into an air cooled chassis, PCI Systems officials say.

Active mezzanine boards are available for switching lanes to test error handling, re-driver mezzanines, and BusAnalyzer mezzanines to test eye patters for each lane and also test port speeds.

The 6U VPX Extender Gen2 module is built to extend a 6U VPX computer board while out of a chassis, providing access to all sides of the module for testing and debugging. The 6U VPX extender has a Tyco Multi-Gig RT-2 connector mini backplane to compensate for lack of a right angle female connector.

The module has a signal rate of 5 gigabits per second; controlled impedance of 100 Ohm differential pairs; LED power rail status monitoring; conformance to VITA 46 VPX and OpenVPX; alignment keying on both sides; and optional mechanical bracing.

Optional mezzanine boards include reddriver for add-on cards, redriver for CPU slot, I/O mezzanine, and bus analyzer 16 lane.

The 3U VPX Extender Gen2 extender modules also are built to extend a 3U or 6U VPX module out of a chassis, providing access to all sides of the module for testing and debugging. The modules have a Tyco multi-gig rt-2 connector mini backplane, signal rate of 5 gigabits per second; controlled impedance of 100 Ohms differential pairs; LED power rail status monitoring; conformance to VITA 46 VPX and OpenVPX; alignment keying on both sides of the extender; and optional mechanical bracing.

Optional mezzanines are reddriver for add-on cards; redriver for CPU slot; I/O mezzanine; and bus analyzer 16 lane switched lanes mezzanine.
