ENCLOSURES AND CHASSIS: OpenVPX- and PC/104-compatible rugged chassis that meets VITA 58 packaging standards introduced by SIE

SIE Computing Solutions Inc. in Brockton, Mass., is introducing the SIE 734 VITA 58 chassis for mission-critical embedded computing systems that must operate in extreme conditions, such as armored combat vehicles and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The rugged electronics chassis meets maintenance requirements level 2 and 2-plus of the VITA 58 industry standard for interoperable electronics packaging.

The SIE 734 chassis integrates with electronics components ranging from PC/104 to OpenVPX, and facilitates convection-, conduction-, and liquid-cooling in rugged aerospace and defense applications, such as military communications, aircraft electronics, and armored combat vehicles. VITA 58 seeks to move embedded systems design away from backplane databuses, and toward standard-size boxes connected on high-speed serial network interfaces. The standard calls for standard-sized electronic enclosures and networking interconnects. The SIE 734 series of rugged chassis range in size from V58/1H1 to V58/8H2. Many are backward compatible with ARINC 600, and all use a rear-mount blind mating connector for plug-and-play applications. The chassis front panel has an indicator light to help identify problems that could require replacement of the LRU, SIE officials say.
