LCR’s high-speed VPX systems incorporating PCIe Gen 4 / Gen 5 and 100GBASE-KR4 protocols are here. The DK3HS supports data rates of 25 Gb per lane for 100 Gb performance in new systems being developed for VPX and SOSA aligned payloads. This 100 Gb VPX system enables early-stage system development with open access and flexible configurability, resulting in faster deployment time for mission-critical requirements in new and emerging defense programmes. The DK3HS includes power and ground backplane, power supply, fan cooling and rear transition zone. Backplane profiles are created using slot-to-slot wiring systems.
