Mezzanine SOSA VPX chassis manager releases a slot
Pixus Technologies has developed a VITA 46.11 (VPX) compliant chassis manager that sits behind an OpenVPX backplane. This mezzanine-based approach allows for chassis management without sacrificing a slot.
The SHM300 SlotSaver VPX chassis manager is designed to the latest SOSA requirements with 100% US-based firmware. The chassis manager is used to monitor/manage the FRUs (Field Replacement Units) plugged into the SOSA/OpenVPX chassis platform ans supports chassis discovery of plug-in boards, information storage, cooling management, SDR-based sensor initialization, and other chassis control and event handling.
The design of the chassis manager ensures that the size/spacing does not interfere with VITA 66 or 67 interfaces and cabling, but it also supports redundant options.
