OpenVPX Chassis Provide RF Interfaces

Pixus Technologies’ latest OpenVPX chassis feature RF interfaces and a rugged Software Defined Radio (SDR). The company’s VITA 67 open frame test/development chassis for OpenVPX supports either 3U or 6U boards of various configurations for test.

Pixus’ SDR is based on X310 from Ettus Research, a National Instruments brand.  The weatherproof, rugged enclosure features IP67 sealing for water and dust ingress.  The Pixus RX310 contains two extended bandwidth daughterboard slots covering 10 MHz to 6 GHz with up to 160 MHz of baseband bandwidth, dual 1/10 GigE high-speed interfaces, and a user-programmable Kintex-7 FPGA.  The RX310 series can be used in various types of airborne, shipboard, ground vehicle, or outdoor designs.
