Carlo Gavazzi: Modular Development System
Board development system.
Brockton, MA — Carlo Gavazzi Computing Solutions has introduced a modular test and development platform that supports 6U cards — the 522 Development System. The product uses a versatile design for hardware and software developers looking for performance and functionality advantages over customary chassis configurations. The 522 provides unobstructed access to both system and rear transition boards for device monitoring.

The system is designed to be a compact and portable system for lab and desktop use, but is also rugged enough to withstand transporting to and from the field. The unit incorporates high performance cooling using 200CFM speed-controlled fans that provide distributed cooling to both the front and rear card modules.

The system is available with front mounted test points and LED's for all DC voltages, as well as an optional LCD for displaying system voltages and both fan and temperature monitoring functions. The 522 Development System is available with a 7-slot (2 VME64X and 5 VPX) 6U VPX backplane offering high-bandwidth in the latest VITA 46 standards with the proven legacy capabilities of VMEbus technology.

Addressing the needs of users deploying custom boards for specialized applications, the unit can accommodate VME64, VXS and VPX boards both in 6U and 3U form factors. Modular in design, the 522 system is available in both standard and custom configurations at competitive pricing.
