CompactPCI and VME64x integrated chassis introduced by Verotec for embedded computing development and testing
EASTLEIGH, England, 21 Oct. 2010. Verotec Ltd. in Eastleigh, England, is introducing a 2U 19-inch chassis that can be supplied with either a horizontally mounted 6U four-slot CompactPCI or a 6U four-slot VME64x embedded computing backplane for testing developing boards and systems. The chassis is screened for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), and is thermally managed and powered IEEE 1101.10/11 desktop or rack mount unit.
EASTLEIGH, England, 21 Oct. 2010. 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 computingbackplane for testing developing board products and systems. The chassis is screened for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), 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, meanwhile, is ANSI/VITA 1.1-1997 compliant, with active on-board termination, electronic auto bus grant and center P0/J0 connectors.
Thermal management is provided by a filtered, front entry hot swappable three-fan cooling unit that directs air horizontally across the front and rear boards; fans enable the latest power-hungry CPU boards to operate to their full potential, company officials say. The unit comes with either embedded 250-Watt AC or DC ATX PSUs or two 3U 8HP 200-Watt pluggable, hot swappable AC or DC units to give redundancy for high availability applications.
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 inside access to the inside of the chassis, useful in the testing and development of boards and systems.
