Elma Bustronic announces its VXS Payload Extender Boards that are designed to bring a circuit card completely out of a card cage or enclosure so that it can be tested or debugged, providing access to both sides of the test board. There are test points for all of the lines on each 160-pin connector and the MultiGig P0 connector. The boards come in a 10-layer stripline design for the rigid PCB and microstrip design for the flex circuit portion. Also featured is an ampmeter that measures the current and has a digital indicator on the front panel showing the status. Extender boards in VXI, VME, AdvancedTCA and CompactPCI architectures are also offered. Other system accessories include load boards, power interface boards, shelf managers and system/voltage monitors.
