Waterloo, Ontario  —  Jan 4, 2017   –  Pixus Technologies, a provider of embedded computing and enclosure solutions, has announced that it’s 1U MicroTCA Chassis has new versatile power options. 

The PXS0108 chassis is the ideal system for development or deployed MicroTCA applications.   The 1U high unit offers a mix-and-match approach for the MicroTCA Carrier Hub (MCH), power, and payload modules.  There are options for 1 or 2 MCHs, single or dual power supplies, and multiple size variants of AMCs.   Further, the chassis now has advanced power management features.  The previous version had only basic, active power management across the backplane.  The upgraded PXS0108 has full power module functionality including failover, remote management, power sequencing, and more.
