Ethernet Conversion Modules: 10G-KR/KX/SGMII to 10G/1G-BASE-T Conversion Module. Convert Backplane SERDES interfaces (KR/KX/SGMII/USXGMII/) to 10G/1000/100 BASE-T for External Chassis interface. Rear Transition Modules: Universal 6U or 3U VPX Rear Transition Module. 06-1019265 Universal RTM breaks out every RJ1-RJ6 connector to a high speed Samtec connector.
Transition Module Extender Cards: Extension of VME64x RTM boards from rear of backplane. Some systems have obstructions such as power supplies behind J1 which prevents direct insertion of RTM’s. 6U Extender Boards: 6U VMEbus and VME64 extension standards extender boards are primarily used to adapt the depth of a 6U board to fit into a deeper-sized card cage. Test Extender Boards: 3U, 6U and 9U VMEbus, VME64x and Universal testing applications test and form factor extender boards. Excellent power and ground distribution. Prototyping Boards: 3U and 6U VME, VME64x and CompactPCI prototyping boards. 0.1″ pin grid arrays allow for easy and efficient testing of your active components. Slot Load Boards: Dawn invented the slot load board (US Patent 5,157,326) to provide all necessary features to conduct thermal analysis, design validation and system characterisation. Available in all standard bus architectures and custom. Slot Bypass Boards: 6U VME and VME64x slot bypass boards provides jumpering for BG/IACK signals through P1. Excellent way to fill empty system slots. Air flow management can also be improved.
