VPX PMC Carrier has conduction-cooled design.

Press Release Summary:

Offered in customized versions for Vita 46/48, VPX Conduction Cooled PMC carrier has separate ±12 V, 150 mA DC/DC converter on board. It is available with PCIe bus implementation on backplane (8 lanes per slot) and 64 lane switch, allowing up to 7 add-on slots and CPU slot. Supplied in 3U form factor, single-slot VPX 64-bit 133 MHz PMC Carrier module can connect one standard IEEE 1386.1-compatible PMC module to standard VPX backplane using PCIe 1x lane or 4x lane configurations.

Original Press Release:

NEW VPX Conduction Cooled PMC Carrier

Laurel, MD and Dietzenbach, Germany

September 30, 2008-PCI-SYSTEMS Inc. , a leading supplier of conduction cooled systems, today announced a NEW VPX Conduction Cooled PMC carrier, enabling accelerated development of rugged conduction cooled embedded systems.

Several customized versions for Vita 46 and Vita 48 are available. The carrier has a separate +/- 12V, 150mA DC to DC converter on board.

PCI-SYSTEMS Inc. manufactures a variety of COTS modular designed conduction cooled chassis for VPX, VME, CPCI and CPCIexpress applications, including ATR and ARINC 600 enclosures.

VPX versions are available with a PCIexpress bus implementation on the backplane, having 8 lanes per slot and a 64 lane switch, therefore allowing up to 7 add-on slots and a CPU slot for very high bandwidth computing applications.

The 3U VPX 64-Bit 133MHz PMC Carrier is a rugged conduction cooled single slot 3U VPX 64-Bit 133MHz PMC Carrier module in 3U form factor that can connect one standard IEEE 1386.1-compatible PMC module to a standard VPX backplane using PCIexpress 1xlane or 4x lane configurations.

The 3U VPX 64-Bit 133MHz PMC Carrier uses a PEX8114 4x lane PCIexpress/PCI Bridge to transfer data between the VPX backplane and the PMC site. Also the 3U VPX 64-Bit 33MHz-133MHz PMC Carrier also provides 3.3V secondary VI/O to the PMC site.

PCI-SYSTEMS Inc. develops and manufactures intelligent CPU and peripheral boards as well as advanced mechanical design solutions in the US and Germany for many platforms that provide precision control of robotic and automated equipment in the semiconductor, medical and industrial equipment markets as well as for ruggedized embedded OEM applications in airborne and defense applications.
