The E-frame test chassis has no side or back walls around the card cage area, which leaves it open for easy access. The chassis supports the rugged VPX (VITA 46/48) systems. However, it can also support any 3 or 6U backplane. This includes VME/64x, VXS, CompactPCI, and more.
The frame’s tower manages up to 21 slots at 0.8 in., or 17 slots at 1 in. pitch. Test points and monitoring LEDs for all VME, VPX, VXS, and cPCI voltages are accessible from the front. This includes +3.3 V, +/-5 V, +/- 12 V, +/- 24 V, and +/- 48 Vdc.
For cooling, 3 x 150 CFM fans operate under the card cage. The fans are speed controlled with fan fail indication. Remote monitoring via Ethernet is optional.
