Test system for rugged 3U CompactPCI Serial embedded computing in rugged applications introduced by Elma
With a compact structure and carrying handle, the nine-slot 3U CompactPCI Serial E-Frame system can be used in laboratory or desktop environments.
FREMONT, Calif. – Elma Electronic Inc. in Fremont, Calif., has expanded its line of E-Frame test and development platforms to include a 3U CompactPCI Serial-based system designed for high-speed data processing in developing CompactPCI Serial-based applications for use in railway, defense and other mobile and rugged applications.
The platform features a nine-slot backplane with one system slot and eight peripheral slots, with Ethernet routed as full mesh. The open design of the Type 39 E-Frame chassis enables access to boards and components.
This facilitates probing and debugging of a system and its components during integrated testing and application development. With verified testing methods completed, systems designers can implement final applications quickly.
The front panel features two voltage test points as well as an on/off and reset switch and a 12-volt LED indicator. An ample, low-cost 300-Watt ATX power supply delivers power to the nine-slot backplane.
With a compact structure and carrying handle, the nine-slot 3U CompactPCI Serial E-Frame system can be used in lab or desktop environments.
The platform comes with a removable front fan tray that features dual 140-cubic-feet-per-minute fans as well as three 55-cubic-feet-per-minute fans in the rear to cool the rear transition modules. A 75-Watt power supply is dedicated to powering the fans, and perforated rear panels ensure proper air intake and exhaust.
