1U cPCI/VME64x Chassis Features Six Cooling Vans

A new 1U desktop or 19-in. rack-mount powered and thermally managed chassis features a 250-W auto-ranging ATX PSU and six cooling fans. The unit comes with either a 6U 8HP 2-slot cPCI or a 6U 8HP 2-slot VME64x backplane, enabling the same mechanical platform to be used for either of the two most popular bus structures. Conforming to IEEE-1101.10/11, the 300-mm deep unit supports 160-mm front-mounted boards and 80-mm deep RTUs. The cPCI backplane is a 64-bit PICMG 2.0 R3.0-compliant unit with a right-hand controller slot, and the VME64x backplane features active on-board termination and electronic auto bus grant. Four cooling fans push and pull air across the horizontally mounted front boards from right to left, exhausting the hot air through the side of the chassis. The fifth fan draws air from the RTU area behind the backplane. The sixth cooling fan is dedicated to the ATX PSU. The chassis is suitable for both development and production uses. Its easily removable top cover gives good access for testing and development, and the robust construction is rigid and strong. All internal surfaces feature a conductive finish, and finger gaskets ensure ground continuity between all components, providing a reliable EMC environment. VEROTEC INC., Londonderry, NH.
