WATERLOO, Ontario, 22 Dec. 2016. Pixus Technologies in Waterloo, Ontario, is introducing the 15U AdvancedTCAembedded computingchassis with more powerful and efficient blowers than previous products.

The Pixus horizontal-mount AdvancedTCA chassis use individually hot-swappable reverse impeller blowers for cooling above 400 Watts per slot.

The RiCool IV versions provide as much as 576 cubic feet per minute (CFM) for each fan and 3.6-inch H20 of static pressure at maximum speed. The combined four blowers provide cooling and the unit continues to operate at full load in 55 degrees Celsius for 96 hours with one fan removed.

The PXS1510/40 15U AdvancedTCA enclosure from Pixus has full redundancy of all field replaceable units (FRUs). The 14-slot backplane configurations include 10-Gigabit Ethernet and 40-Gigabit Ethernet available now, with a 100-Gigabit Ethernet option on the roadmap for early 2017.

Pixus offers other ATCA shelves in 13U high, 6U high SlotSaver, and a 3U hybrid ATCA/MTCA. The company also provides backplanes and chassis platforms in the OpenVPX, MicroTCA, and legacy VME/CompactPCI form factors.
