The DK3 and DK6 offer better flexibility, fast conversion between air and conduction-cooled module support and fast backplane replacement. Their modular construction has been developed for easy reconfiguration throughout development right up to a deployable chassis.
The two chassis’ open frame benchtop designs integrate backplane, power supply, push/pull fan cooling and rear transition slots for a variety of test functions. They can be used for single VPX module development or full system-level integration and testing.
The 3U or 6U modules have two base configurations. Standard configurations may include power and ground backplanes, or application-specific VPX or SOSA-aligned versions with up to 12 slots, depending on pitch requirements. Combinations of air and conduction-cooled card guides and power supplies to support a range of module types and power requirements are also available. All LCR development systems can be configured with VPX, VME, cPCI or cPCI Serial backplanes.
