AZ-COM has introduced a series of  Full Access Open Frames )*

for VPX, cPCI, cPCI Serial and cPCI Express architectures.

Full Access Open Frames  give easy access to developed bus cards for signal probing and monitoring. They dramatically cut cost of development environment and provide many additional features not available with traditional development chassis.

Frames can be placed on any of four sides giving unobstructed access to either or both side of the developed card. Dual slot Alternating Backplane )* has two bus cards placed on the opposite sides allowing full access to both sides of both cards. Off-the-shelf versions include single slot, dual slot power only and dual slot alternating with selected fabric configurations. 3 and more slot versions are available.
Each backplane has ATX connector and power switch. For 6U buses with heavy current consumption LUG posts are installed.

RESET and current monitoring for individual slots aid in development of the cards. Monitoring and injection of the utility signals is provided.
Available options include Rear I/O connectors for cPCI, VPX and cPCI-S.0 backplanes.

VPX backplanes are available with Ruggedized MULTIGIG RT 2-R  Connectors, Hypertronix connectors  and VIPER connectors.
cPCI backplanes are available with hypertronics connectors. Custom configurations can be easily implemented using VPX and cPCI cables. cPCI-Serial configurations can be implemented by means of economical custom back-plates available from AZ-COM.

If your project calls for multiple connections, AZ-COM will produce custom backplanes with fabric per your specifications.

Addition of separating plates and custom air guides allows precise measurement of air flow required for adequate cooling of your device.

Versions with conduction cooled mounting are available.

Open Frames are a great tools for R&D Engineers, Test Engineers and Educational Institutions.
Limited time introductory prices start below $ 500.00 for single slot cPCI Frames.
