Aitech E900 - cPCI/CompactPCI Radiation Tolerant Enclosure

A Rugged Chassis Specially Designed for High Reliability Space Applications.

Introduction

The Aitech E900 is a cold plate cooled 8-slot 3U CompactPCI compliant rugged computer enclosure, specially designed for space applications. The power supplies provide standard CompactPCI bus voltages and additional outputs in +15VDC, -15VDC and a dedicated +12VDC to power external equipment.

Sturdy Mechanical Design

The design of the E900 has been optimized to provide maximum strength with minimum weight. Constructed of durable CNC machined 6061-T6 aluminum, the chassis is assembled using stainless steel fasteners to prevent corrosion. 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. All external surfaces, with the exception of the cold plate interface, are hard anodized coated for excellent corrosion resistance. The cold platemating surface is precision machined to ensure
excellent heat transfer to the cold plate, and it is configurable to meet any customer-mounting
requirements.

Board Capacity

The E900 accommodates 8 standard 3U CompactPCI boards with 0.8 inch pitch per VITA 30.1-2002.

CompactPCI Backplane

The backplane is 3U CompactPCI compliant with J1 and J2 connectors in all slots. By eliminating an intermediate wire harness, all the signals are routed within the backplane to the corresponding front panel I/O connectors.
