Bustronic Develops New VXS Backplanes with Ethernet Control Channel



FREMONT, California – Elma Bustronic Corporation, an industry leading designer and manufacturer of high performance backplanes, now offers VXS backplanes with a Gigabit Ethernet Control Layer Channel per VITA 41.6

The first in the series of Elma Bustronic’s VXS Backplanes with the control channel is a 20-slot size. It features a dual star routing topology and 18-layer stripline design. The Gigabit Ethernet control channel provides for out-of-band communication. This can be particularly important for system management, software and firmware upgrades, and initiating new processes on specific boards. The 7U high backplane also has power studs in 3.3V, 5V, 12V, and GND along the top and bottom of the backplane to allow for flexible power options.

Elma Bustronic also offers Dual Star topologies VXS backplanes in 8, 12, 18, 20, and 21 slots. VXS Star backplanes include sizes in 5 slots and an 8-slot with one hub, 5 payload, and 2 legacy VME64x slots. Other Elma Bustronic innovations for VXS include a Switchless Mesh, Processor Mesh, VXS/VPX Hybrid backplanes, and Extender Card. The Switchless VXS backplane has 3 point-to-point mesh slots and 2 legacy VME64x slots. All of the company’s VXS backplanes are compliant to the VITA 41.0 core specification.
