VPX/open VPX C-Frame 5 Slot 6U

Technology: VPX/open VPX
Slots: 5
Cooling: Front to top
Power: AC


Our 2nd Generation C-Frame offers the next level of flexibility in VPX development platforms. Not only can the customer exchange the type of card guides (convection, conduction, AFT) in a blink of an eye but now also the signal backplane. Thanks to Bi=/=Plane®technology, power and signal parts of a VPX backplane are separate PCB assemblies. This enables uncompromised signal quality along with faster turn around for the design of custom profiles.
