Open Frame Reduces System Design Time

The DK6 for 6U VPX features an open frame concept and enhanced flexibility with fast conversion between air and conduction cooled module guides and fast backplane replacement for easy reconfiguration in support of every stage of development.

This open frame design includes backplane, power supply, fan cooling and rear transition slots in support of a variety of test functions. Backplane choices support up to 12 6U VPX modules and individual slots are easily configurable to accept either conduction or air-cooled modules.
