WATERLOO, Ontario – Pixus Technologies in Waterloo, Ontario, is introducing an embedded computingmounting rail for rugged aerospace and defense applications that supports very high insertion forces.

The modular extrusion rail accepts standard OpenVPX or other architectures boards based on the IEEE 1101 specification.

In many OpenVPX systems, the high insertion forces of some plug-in modules can cause standard mounting rails to bow or crack. The rugged Pixus version features a thicker metal, has two mounting screws, and a re-enforced design to provide strength and durability.

When designed-in together with the Pixus offset card guides, systems designers can use 4HP and 5HP plug-in modules in the same subrack.
