Pixus Demonstrates Backplane Design Capability in Excess of 100GbE

Waterloo, Ontario  —  Nov 16, 2022 –  Pixus Technologies, a provider of embedded computing and enclosure solutions, has developed a high performance backplane with signals above 28 Gbaud across the backplane slots.  The design leverages the 6U OpenVPX form factor and VITA 66/67 RF and optical interfaces, but utilizes a special high-speed connector for the fastest data rates.

The backplane features 14 slots with both RF and optical interfaces through the backplane to the rear panel of a Pixus RiCool chassis.  The company employs high-grade PCB materials, back-drilling, and specialized routing strategies to optimize signal performance.  For speeds of PCIe Gen4 (16 Gbaud/sec) or above, the company typically performs signal integrity (SI) studies to help ensure the performance of the high-speed signals.  The SI results of these backplanes have shown excellent results with large eye diagram openings, etc.

Pixus offers SOSA™ aligned, OpenVPX, and other modular open standard architecture backplane/enclosure solutions.  The company also offers various specialty boards in various standards, including power interface boards, alarm cards, chassis managers, and more.
