2U MicroTCA Chassis from Pixus Technologies Has Rugged Features

Waterloo, Ontario  —  Mar 27, 2019 –  Pixus Technologies, a provider of embedded computing and enclosure solutions, offers a 2U high rackmount MicroTCA chassis holding a versatile range of AdvancedMCs.

The 2U MicroTCA chassis comes with 1 MCH (MicroTCA Carrier Hub) slot and 7 AdvancedMCs (AMCs) standard.  The backplane supports 40GbE and PCIe Gen3 speed signals.  Other backplane sizes and configurations are available upon request.

The chassis platform has the card cage recessed within the enclosure, providing protection for the AMCs and the cabling.  The left side of the card cage is raised slightly to allow for cabling to be channeled to the rear of the enclosure.  The rear of the chassis is extra deep with a cavity for mounting various devices, including RF modules.

The pluggable power module slots are located securely within the rear of the chassis and are cabled over to the rear panel.  Single or dual redundant power options are available.

Pixus offers these types of enclosures in 1U-8U heights in both MicroTCA.0 and MicroTCA.4 formats.  The company also provides chassis platforms in OpenVPX, AdvancedTCA, CompactPCI Serial, and VME64x architectures.
