Pixus Announces New Horizontal-Mount OpenVPX Backplanes

Waterloo, Ontario — Nov 2, 2020 – Pixus Technologies, a provider of embedded computing and enclosure solutions, has announced new OpenVPX backplanes designed for horizontal-mount enclosures.

So, a wide range of configurations and size options are available. The backplanes are typically designed to support at least PCIe Gen3 speeds, but higher-speed options are offered.
