SIE Computing Solutions Introduces New 3U VPX Portable Benchtop Enclosure

Lightweight Aluminum Enclosure Ideal for VPX Product Development and Testing

BROCKTON, MA--(Marketwire - March 15, 2010) -  SIE Computing Solutions, Inc., a provider of rugged electronic packaging solutions for mission-critical embedded computing platforms deployed in harsh environments, today announced its new 3U 5-slot portable lightweight aluminum enclosure. The newest addition to the SIE 585 Series, the enclosure is ideal for VPX product development and testing.

The new 585 3U 5-slot portable enclosure from SIE Computing Solutions allows for the development of VPX systems in a simpler and more cost-effective manner. The air cooled open-design comes with a 5-slot full mesh backplane with two additional I/O slots and is easily accessible from front and back to enable efficient testing for multiple systems. Designed for development and manufacturing teams working on VPX applications, it allows for software component and card testing in-unit at a significantly lower cost than traditional VPX enclosure systems.

"As mission-critical applications increasingly call for advanced embedded computing capabilities in a compact size, there is a tremendous amount of VPX development being done to support the industry," said Jessica Isquith, vice president of marketing at SIE Computing Solutions. "This new portable enclosure enables software developers, board designers and manufacturers a development-friendly environment that is portable and efficient for testing applications within a full system."

The 3U 5-slot VPX portable enclosure is readily available. A one-year limited warranty is standard with the product, and an extended warranty is also available.
