Reportedly representing the first benchtop chassis suited for applications employing the new CompactPCI Serial Mesh Backplane (CSMB) architecture, this new version of the company's 8-slot T-Frame system is designed to provide all the functionality and control called for in a test and development chassis housing a fully compliant CSMB. The T-Frame with CSMB system allows developers to access and monitor boards without extender cards, with the system's open-frame design providing easy access to both front and rear boards for probes and debugging. The12U-high unit is mounted on a tilt stand to ease access to plug-in cards. Both upper and lower fan-equipped air chambers are provided for cooling the chassis. The CSMB, which supports the high-speed data transfers encountered in ATM, frame relay, 3G wireless, and other systems, supports data transfer rates of up to 700 Gb/s, with its data channels arranged in a "mesh" configuration to give each slot a full set of interconnects to every other slot. In addition, the new standard offers a parallel capability to new PICMG 3.X configurations in the AdvancedTCA architecture. Price of the T-Frame with Serial Mesh Backplane starts at $4,795.
