Rugged Modular Chassis Systems


Our modular, aluminum chassis variants give you many different and interchangeable options for VPX and cPCI, as well as our rugged small form factor VITA 73. System design is better than mix and matching parts. PCI-Systems Inc. rugged chassis sysrems and its electrical components were completely designed in-house with a modular approach in mind. We can cover *all OpenVPX backplane profiles with our backplane, as well as creating custom profiles for you in a short time frame.

A typical basic unit consists of a 6 slot chassis, power supply and a 3 part PCIe GEN2 backplane. Ask for our PDF presentations about the cutting edge Desert Gecko 3U chassis system, and our custom modular active/passive backplane with mezzanines presentation. (PATENT PENDING)

We offer a standard rear I/O solution with MIL connectors (ICD available), featuring pin/signal configurations used in most applications. Also available are custom rear I/O solutions. There is also a lower cost rear I/O transition module available utilizing D-Sub connectors.
