Versatile features added to 1U MicroTCA chassis

Pixus Technologies has announced its 1U MicroTCA Chassis with new versatile power options. The PXS0108 chassis is suitable for the development of MicroTCA applications.

The 1U high unit offers a mix-and-match approach for the MicroTCA Carrier Hub (MCH), power, and payload modules. There are options for 1 or 2 MCHs, single or dual power supplies, and multiple size variants of AMCs.

According to the company, the chassis now has advanced power management features. The previous version had only basic, active power management across the backplane. The upgraded PXS0108 has full power module functionality including failover, remote management, power sequencing, and more.

The 6-slot MicroTCA system platform has backplane options up to PCIe Gen3 speeds. A 40GbE backplane option is also available upon request.
