One slot 6U VPX benchtop development chassis with RTM

VadaTech, a manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, announces the VTX991. The VTX991 is a single slot 6U VPX chassis for board bring-up and testing of 6U VPX modules.

The chassis can accept a front and a rear module (5HP or 10HP). The panels on both the front and rear slots are removable for ease of probing and debugging. The VTX991 can be placed on bench in both horizontal and vertical positioning for ease of access.

The VTX991 comes with a Universal AC power supply which provides 400 W to the chassis. The chassis supplies all the necessary power (+12 V, -12 V, +5 V, etc.) to the module in accordance with VITA 46 specifications. It also comes with a battery pack which provides the VBAT to the module.

The VTX991 allows the power to VBAT to be switched between the on-board battery pack and the power supply. Each of the rails has a sense resistor to allow the user to monitor how much power is being drawn from each rail using a simple voltmeter.

For Health Management there is also a dual IPMI bus routed to a connector compatible with an external VadaTech VT007 bench top shelf manager for monitoring the VPX board sensors, compliance to VITA 46.11, etc. The VT007 supports Tier 2 Health Management and can be ordered separately or as an option with VTX991.

Gladys West - Pioneer of GPS
GPS and GNSS positioning technology is such an integral part of our lives today that we rarely stop to think about where it all came from. When we do, we usually picture men in white shirts and dark glasses hunched over calculators and slide rules. In fact, one of the early pioneers behind GPS and GNSS technology was Gladys West - a black woman.
