AoC3U-100 VPX Rugged Packaging SolutionLCR Embedded AoC3U-100 Single Slot VPX Chassis

The AoC3U-100 is a robust packaging solution for sensor applications where high speed RF and optical processing payload modules are used in EW / ISR operations as well as a range of radar applications. Intended for airborne and ground usage in critical defense assets, the AoC3U-100 addresses the need for deploying high speed RF signal processing capability in a range of applications supporting the new electronic warfare reality.

The precision engineered chassis includes a single slot backplane with the 3U VPX or SOSA aligned slot profile you require for the designated plug in card to be installed. Providing the highest levels of signal integrity, the backplane, I/O panel and connector set are customized for your board and include the most advanced connector technology available.

Part of our AoC, air over conduction cooled chassis line, the AoC3U-100 is designed to maintain safe operating temperatures for high power VITA 48.2 conduction cooled payloads. The chassis combines forced air with conduction cooling to dramatically increase thermal management capacity while leveraging readily available VITA 48.2 plug in modules.

The AoC3U-100 reflects design practices in use across the LCR family of proven ATR chassis designed to meet a range of MIL-STD-810 and MILSTD-461 test methods.

Also consider LCR for system integration services and environmental testing.
