Products > HAWK VPX 3U 1 Slot Chassis

PCI-Systems innovative 1-2-3 system. 1: Lab unit 2: Configure unit 3: Deploy unit!
All our prototype systems can be deployed without needing to change out the chassis. Add front and rear custom covers, MIL-DTL mezzanine and full sealing and you are ready to go to qualification! 

Now available as rugged low cost INTEL I7 enclosure. See below.



16 channel conduction cooled router/switch based on Juniper's LN 1000 router and PCI-Systems managed conduction cooled Gigabit Ethernet switch.

Featuring large heatsink areas and a fully customizable backplane our HAWK can be configured to meet many special single or double slot payload demands. Available as a lab version for the LN-1000 in the single slot version.

Combined with our IGUANA OpenVPX 3U switch module or Juniper Networks LN-1000 rugged router the HAWK is a very small but fully ruggedized networking platform. Combined with our 3U VPX Intel I7 CPU module it can be configured to meet various demands. Ask for block diagrams of standard variants!

I/O can be configured to 2x 55 pin MIL-DTL connectors plus a power connector, power switch and GORE brand vent.
