VadaTech: new 6U VPX chassis with fiber optic I/O
VadaTech announces the VTX350, a 6U VPX chassis with up to twelve 6U VPX slots and provision for dual power modules ideal for field deployment. The chassis can accept 0.8-inch, 0.85-inch and 1.0-inch pitch modules.
The initial backplane provides eight 6U VPX payload slots, fully compliant to VITA 46.0 baseline specification with additional support to the RTMs, compliant to VITA 46.10 and OpenVPX VITA65. In addition, an optional chassis manager (VPX980) can include a JTAG Switch Module (JSM) with JTAG routed to payload slots. Each payload slot supports up to six VITA 66.5 12-way fiber modules for high density fiber I/O. The chassis includes provision for fiber management and stress relief, making it suitable for high-speed, high-I/O applications such as EW and multi-mode radar. Chassis construction meets shock and vibration requirements per MIL-STD-810G. The VTX350 requires airflow to be provided by the cabinet, and includes provision for airflow management over payload, power and switch/manager modules.
