Aitech E190 - Fin-Cooled cPCI/CompactPCI or VPX Enclosure/Chassis

Two Standard 3U CompactPCI or VPX Slots, for Military and other Harsh Environment Applications

Introduction

Aitech's E190 CompactPCI/VPX computer enclosure is built to be rugged and reliable as well as lightweight and compact. EMI/RFI protected and environmentally sealed, the E190 is capable of withstanding extreme environmental conditions of temperature, humidity, shock, vibration, EMI and chemical exposure. This makes it ideal for use in military and other harsh environment applications. 

Sturdy Mechanical Design

The E190 is constructed of durable CNC machined 6061-T6 aluminum. Fasteners are stainless steel and often-used threads have self-locking stainless steel helicoils to withstand severe vibration and shock. All connectors are located on the front panel of the enclosure for easy access. Designed with a built-in lifting handle for convenient handling, the E190 is equipped with brackets and captive screws for convenient hard mounting.

Board Capacity

The E190 accommodates two standard 3U CompactPCI or VPX boards with 1.0 inch pitch,including:

  • ANSI/VITA 30.1-2002 CompactPCI cards
  • ANSI/VITA 46.0-2007 VPX cards
  • ANSI/VITA 48.2-2010 VPX REDI cards

Backplane

The E190 is available with a 2-slot 3U CompactPCI or 3U VPX compliant backplane. The CompactPCI backplane has a standard CompactPCI bus, and the VPX backplane has a PCIe data plane comprising a single x8 port of up to 5 GHz. I/O signals from the card slots are routed to front panel I/O connectors via the I/O Transition Board. Standard E190 backplanes are designed for compatibility with Aitech's CompactPCI (C800, C802, C900) or VPX (C870, C873) SBCs, providing the appropriate controlled impedance, differential, and fenced traces for the I/O of those boards.

Custom backplanes and I/O Transition Boards can be designed for compatibility with other SBCs or to meet specific customer requirements. The backplane is designed to mate with the I/O Transition Board  using high density
connectors.
