VME/64X Systems
Elma VME/64X systems feature a modular design and rugged, high-quality construction.
These chassis are available in 19” rackmount, desktop or portable tower versions, with 7 different types available, each designed to meet the needs of specific applications. 1U – 15U heights are available with depths from 15” to 24”. Vertical or horizontal card cages accommodate 3U, 6U or 9U boards with depths from 160-400mm depths. All systems come fully assembled, wired and tested prior to shipment.

Rugged COTS Systems

The COTS 12R2 is a high quality and cost-efficient
rugged package for all VME/VME64x, VXS, VPX and cPCI applications. The rugged product line includes 5U-14U models for both 6U and 9U cards. The 12R2 uses honeycomb
filters, braided gasketing, and metal impregnated gasket sheets to seal off every external seam to ensure compliance to MIL-STD-461D. To verify that the chassis will more than meet shock and vibration requirements, the 12R2 has been tested for shock, vibration, and structural integrity per MIL-STD-810F, MIL-STD-167 and MIL-STD-901D. The 12R2 integrates standard off-the-shelf parts including aluminum flat frames and covers, ruggedized side plates, cross-functional extruded profiles, standard electrical components and wire harnesses to reduce lead time. The 12R2 features MIL-grade components, system monitoring LEDs, a powerful, efficient cooling system and holds up to 20 boards.

VXS & VPX Systems

The Elma VXS chassis is available in a portable
tower version, or in 19” rackmount and are designed to meet VITA 41 VXS specifications. Configurations are offered for both horizontal and vertical mounting of 6U x 160mm cards. Backplanes are available
in 5, 8, 12, 18 or 20 slots in Single Star, Dual Star, Mesh, and Hybrid versions. The VXS Switched Serial standard is new VITA initiative to advance VME technology. Fully backwards-compatible to VME/VME64x, VXS utilizes a new 6.4 Gbps high-speed connector
across the P0 section of a VME64x backplane. The new connector allows the use of switched fabric signals for higher bandwidth and reliability.

The Elma VPX Development Chaasis features
a carrying handle and is ideal for prototyping and testing. Elma is also developing
VPX backplanes in 3U and 6U formats in various configurations, including hybrid versions with legacy VME64x slots. The VPX backplanes are currently utilized in Elma’s convection and conduction-cooled system platforms, with special configurations for higher power and increased cooling capacity. Future designs to VITA 48.3 for liquid flow-though cooling are on the roadmap.


ATR (Air Transport Rack)

The Elma ATR for COTS is available with conduction or convection cooling in sizes 1/2, 3/4, 1, or 1 1/2 ATR per ARINC 404A. Bus formats include VME, VME64X, VXS, VPX, cPCI and Custom, all built with a modular
design to ensure easy customization with minimum cost and lead time. There are 2 chassis depths available with capacity for 5, 7, 12 or 15 slots, 6U x 160mm. The ATR features advanced airflow distribution, removable front panels, rear panels, and top and bottom covers. Designed to meet MIL-STD’s 5400, 810F, 461E, 704A, 275A, the Elma ATR family is ideal for use with commercially available cards in airborne, ground mobile or shipboard applications.
