SBS GreenSpring Modular I/O announces the availability of a new line of conduction cooled IndustryPacks designed to meet stringent performance requirements of military and aerospace applications
SBS Technologies Inc., Computer Grouppany%> announces the availability of a new line of conduction cooled IndustryPacks designed to meet stringent performance requirements of military and aerospace applications. This process of designing COTS I/O boards with conduction cooled capabilities enables standard bus boards to meet strict environmental standards-eliminating the need for board redesign and layout on a per project basis. Conduction cooled capabilities are available on 18 analog, digital, serial, and motion control Industry Packs; and a Quad IndustryPack carrier board.
A carrier board, the VIPC664-WL-CC, includes nickel-plated metals that dissipate the heat. It is a VME64x board that accommodates four IndustryPack sites and has all 200 I/O lines routed through the rear panel P0 and P2 VME 64x connectors to reduce EMI emissions and to simplify cabling.
Thermocycling is then performed, where the boards are placed into a temperature controlled chamber and the temperature is cycled from -40°C to +85°C for 72 hours. After this is complete, a functional acceptance test is performed to ensure the solder joints are still intact after exposure to extreme temperatures.
