Video Description

This product video is brought to you by Mouser Electronics, an authorized distributor of Amphenol.

VPX system development in modern military contexts demands agile approaches that accommodate shorter development cycles and the integration of diverse payloads to meet evolving system requirements. This necessitates hardware convergence and interoperability across military platforms. Amphenol Aerospace addresses these challenges with their DK3 "El Sharko" 3U VPX development chassis, available through Mouser Electronics.

The DK3 "El Sharko" chassis offers unparalleled flexibility, featuring a standard 8-slot, 1.2" pitch power and ground 40Gb backplane. This backplane facilitates rapid development, demonstration, and evaluation of 3U VPX and Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) aligned systems. Moreover, the chassis can swiftly adapt to accommodate air or conduction-cooled modules, enhancing its versatility for diverse deployment scenarios.

Critical to its functionality, the backplane of the DK3 "El Sharko" chassis is intelligently designed. It incorporates four fully populated slots alongside four slots equipped with VITA 67 full-width apertures. These apertures enable the installation of VITA 66 and 67 connectors, facilitating RF and optical connectivity to meet the demands of modern military communication and sensing applications.

The power supply system of the DK3 "El Sharko" chassis is equally robust and adaptable. It features a balanced 12-volt and 5-volt power supply configuration, accommodating mixed power payloads efficiently. Additionally, for applications requiring a different power distribution strategy, the chassis is also available with a 12-volt centric power supply option, ensuring compatibility with various system architectures.

The DK3 "El Sharko" 3U VPX development chassis from Amphenol Aerospace embodies a sophisticated solution tailored to the dynamic requirements of modern military system development. With its flexibility, interoperability, and robust power supply capabilities, it serves as a cornerstone for accelerating VPX system development while ensuring compatibility with evolving hardware and interoperability standards.
