Schroff has introduced a 4U, nine-slot subrack system based on the new CompactPCI Serial specification, suitable for application in the process, industrial control, defence and transportation sectors.

The system takes full advantage of the specification’s high-speed serial bus topology to deliver a data transfer rate of up to 32Gbit/s via PCIe, 10GbE, S-ATA, USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 interfaces.

The CompactPCI Serial system comprises a subrack, backplane, fan tray and power supply.

The shielded 19-in aluminium chassis is 4U high and has a depth of 275mm.

Featuring a perforated top cover and base plate, it is supplied with front handles and a set of guide rails to enable it to be populated with 3U-high boards.

The nine-slot backplane, providing one system slot and eight peripheral slots, conforms to PICMG CompactPCI-S.0 and can be specified with or without rear I/O.

Effective cooling of the system is ensured by a 1U hot-swap fan tray under the board cage.

Operating from a wide input range of 100 to 240VAC, the built-in 300W ATX power supply features an IEC AC input socket, mains switch and dedicated fan.

In addition, the CompactPCI Serial system includes plug-in units for DVD and hard-disk drives, as well as various 3U front panels.
