Pixus Technologies Offers Over 125 Configurations of CompactPCI-based Backplanes



Waterloo, Ontario, June 4, 2012   –  Pixus Technologies, a supplier of backplane, enclosure, and embedded component solutions, has announced that it offers a vast selection of unique CompactPCI and PICMG-based solutions in various heights, slots sizes, and configurations.

Pixus offers CompactPCI (cPCI) backplanes in 3U and 6U heights in slot sizes from 2-8 slots, including bridgeable versions to 21 slots. These PICMG 2.0 Rev 3.0 compliant backplanes feature a multi-strip design and typically range from 10-12 layers. There are various configurations for the cPCI backplanes, including 33 Mhz and 66 Mhz bus rates and 32-bit and 64-bit types.& With a modular power design, it is simple for Pixus Technologies to attach power backplanes in a wide array of configurations. Alternatively, Pixus offers versions of the cPCI backplanes with pluggable 47-pin connector that are compliant to PICMG 2.11 all in one monolithic board. Further, the cPCI backplanes (with orwithout the pluggable power
connectors) can come in vertical or horizontal-mount configurations.

There are also several backplanes offered by Pixus that are based on the CompactPCI architecture. This includes PICMG 2.16 (Compact Packet Switching), H.110 (Computer Telephony), CompactPCI Express, and CompactPCI PlusIO designs. Other PICMG-based backplanes from Pixus include PCIe, PXIe, MicroTCA, and AdvancedTCA. Pixus Technologies was formed by former Kaparel management and acquired the CompactPCI backplane library of Kaparel back in 2011. The company offers customization services for its backplanes, which also include VITA-based architectures.   Other related products offered by Pixus include load boards, extender boards, bridges, power boards, power supplies, and enclosures.

Pricing for the CompactPCI backplanes start under $100.00, depending slots, configuration, and volume. Lead time is stock to 4 weeks ARO.
