WATERLOO, Ontario, 7 Oct. 2012. Pixus Technologies in Waterloo, Ontario, is introducing ATR enclosures for avionics and similar aerospace and defense embedded computing applications. The first in the series is a conduction-cooled 1/2 ATR short, developed using the frame from partner Wakefield-Vette in Pelham, N.H.

The Pixus ATR series offers different sizes and configurations of enclosures, in fan convection and conduction-cooled versions. This includes sizes in 1/2 and 3/4 in the long and short ARINC formats.

Backplanes are available off-the-shelf or customized in CompactPCI, MicroTCA, OpenVPX, VME/64x, and other architectures. The company also uses the standard enclosure frame options of industry partners to offer customers a tailored design to their application.

The 1/2 ATR short enclosure features dip-brazed or "screwed and glued" options depending on the needs of the application.

Pixus Technologies stems from the former Kaparel team and capitalizes on backplane and enclosures that have been deployed for the last 20 years, company officials say.
