Original Press Release:
6-Slot Conduction Cooled OpenVPX Chassis for Rack Mount Development/Deployment introduced by Curtiss-Wright
New Hybricon® DT-CC conduction-cooled rack mount chassis is designed for 150W OpenVPX Modules; Supports 10.3 Gbaud data transfers
ASHBURN, Va. — Curtiss-Wright Corporation (NYSE: CW) today announced that its Defense Solutions division has introduced a new high-power conduction-cooled rack mount OpenVPX™ chassis designed for use in commercial and military system development applications. The new 6-slot Hybricon® DT-CC enclosure provides a low slot-count solution for aerospace and defense system developers that require a rack-mounted OpenVPX subsystem for use in lab development, ground fixed, and transit case applications. Designed to support modules rated at up to 150W per slot, the DT-CC features high performance fans and ensures <55C chassis and 25 C conduction rail temperatures. It is optionally available configured with a Curtiss-Wright Fabric40™ Gen 3 OpenVPX backplane rated for 10.3 Gbaud data transfers. This new OpenVPX chassis complements Curtiss-Wright’s extensive family of development enclosures, including the 16-slot RME13CC conduction-cooled rack mount chassis, COOL-CC6 6-slot conduction-cooled desktop chassis, and DT-XC 6-slot air-cooled Rack Mount chassis.
"With the introduction of our new DT-CC 6-slot OpenVPX rack mount chassis, Curtiss-Wright extends its family of conduction cooled OpenVPX Chassis designed for today’s high power 150W modules,” said Lynn Bamford, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Defense Solutions. “Ideal for use in smaller slot count applications, the DT-CC highlights our leading position as a supplier of air- and conduction-cooled rack mount and desktop OpenVPX chassis.”
Fabric40, Signal Integrity and End-to-End Interoperability
Designed to stringent Curtiss-Wright Gen3 Signal Integrity (SI) design rules, Hybricon Fabric40 backplanes exceed VITA 68 VPX compliance channel draft standard guidelines. Curtiss-Wright’s proprietary SI methods minimize signal impairments, such as high return loss, crosstalk and mode conversion (patent pending), to deliver reliable SI performance at speeds up to 10.3 Gbaud, resulting in the best performance and lowest risk backplane platform in the industry.
