XPand1200 3U VPX Development Platform

The XPand1200 is a low-cost, flexible, development platform. This platform supports up to eight 0.8 in. or 1.0 in. pitch conduction-cooled VPX (VITA 48.2) modules. It provides 550 W of total simultaneous power, which can be distributed as up to 50 A on 12 V, up to 50 A on 5 V, and up to 80 A on 3.3 V.

The heat from the internal conduction-cooled modules is conducted to sidewall exchangers, where it is dissipated to the ambient environment by forced-air cooling. This efficient thermal design allows up to 60 W of power dissipation per slot at 30°C ambient,while maintaining 70°C at the module’s thermal interface.

X-ES platforms, including the XPand1200, provide a feature-rich solution for system development. Rear Transition Modules (RTMs) provide maximum I/O flexibility and rapid system prototyping. Power and reset LEDs are provided for system status. A momentary push-button is provided for reset, and a switch is provided for DC power enable.

The XPand1200 is currently available for purchase in several rapid-development standard configurations. Custom configurations of modules, RTMs, and backplanes are also available utilizing X-ES and third-party components.
