Hybricon's New OF-XC 12U Open Frame Desktop Test Chassis supports VITA 46/VPX and VITA 48/REDI

Ayer, MA, September 15, 2006- Hybricon Corporation announces the release of a new line of open frame desktop test chassis (the OF-XC Series) designed for today's high power VPX REDI boards. High power boards and systems have been around for a long time; what's new is that they are moving from the custom realm into mainstream standards-based applications. The power dissipation levels of today's emerging high power VITA 46 VPX switch fabric boards just keep increasing; in the past few years power dissipation in the 50W-100W range was the norm, now the range is increasing to 75-150W. Up until now, these 75-150W boards could only be adequately cooled in high performance full sized rack mount enclosures. This can now be accomplished in Hybricon's open frame desktop style enclosure.

The OF-XC Series chassis has open side access by engineering and test personnel for debugging the industry's latest VPX REDI boards. Designed to the latest VITA 46.0, VITA 46.1, VITA 46.3, VITA 46.10, VITA 48.0, and VITA 48.1 draft standards, the standard hybrid mixed VME64x-VPX Backplane provides 11 slots based on VITA 48.1 VPX REDI with 1.0" pitch, including support for 80mm Rear transition Modules in both VME64x and VPX slots.. Part of Hybricon's extreme cooling chassis family, the chassis has a 2kW Power Supply and high performance fans with 20 CFM per slot to power and cool the most demanding new VPX boards.

The OF-XC chassis are initially available with Hybricon's standard hybrid mixed VME64x-VPX switch fabric backplane. Hybricon's backplanes have been computer simulated in Hybricon's signal integrity laboratory to ensure low signal cross-talk and trouble-free system operation. The enclosures are available with 2k watts of power.

Additional features include:
o Designed to the latest VITA 46.0, VITA 46.1, VITA 46.3, VITA 46.10, VITA 48.0, and VITA 48.1 draft standards
o Provisions for 80mm rear plug-in modules and transition modules in both VME64x and VPX slots
o Front and rear ground clips provide proper grounding (per IEC 950 section 2) for all plug-in modules thereby reducing the chances of circuit damage by electrostatic discharge
o Custom configurations available
