Bustronic (Fremont, CA) recently released a new 6U VPX load board, which helps the confirm that the chassis meets the VITA 46/48 power specifications. The load board helps test a system’s cooling capabilities by first applying the load to the power supply for verification, and then creating the necessary heat to confirm chassis cooling. By locating the shot spots in the chassis, a system designer can verify where to optimally redirect the airflow to prevent overheating. The 6U VPX load card features a microcontroller-based stepped load control to 100W maximum, a power reset button, and a SYSRESET signal on the two test point outputs.
