Verotec Ltd. in Eastleigh, England, is introducing a 2U 19-inch embedded systems chassis that comes with either a horizontally mounted four-slot 6U CompactPCI or a four-slot 6U VME64x embedded computing backplane for testing developing board products and systems. The chassis is screened for electromagnetic compatibility, offers electronics thermal management, and powered IEEE 1101.10/11 desktop or rack-mount unit. The CompactPCI backplane is available as a 64-bit, PICMG 2.0 R3.0-compliant unit with a right-hand controller slot at the top; rear plug connectors in P3, P4, and P5; and selectable, coded I/O in standard and CT/H.110 versions, or as a PICMG 2.16 packet switching unit.
The VME64x backplane is ANSI/VITA 1.1-1997-compliant, with active on-board termination, electronic auto bus grant, and center P0/J0 connectors. EMC attenuation comes from conductive gaskets on panel seals, bare or tinned beryllium copper gaskets on the card cage apertures, and 3.5-millimeter round, 5-millimeter triangular pitch hole pattern for airflow vents. A removable top cover provides access to the inside of the chassis, useful in the testing and development of boards and systems.
