Product Specification Sheet (In pdf Format)
The SATPAK-VPX is a 3U form factor carrier board that provides a mechanical VPX interface for the Type I or Type II GB-GRAM module. The 3 serial ports of the GB-GRAM are converted to the RS-232, RS-422, or USB serial protocols on the SATPAK-VPX. Serial RS-232 and RS-422 data can be configured to interface via the VPX connectors P1 and P2 or the front panel connector J2. USB serial data is available on the front panel using a Mini-B USB socket or via dedicated USB signals on VPX connectors P1 and P2. The SATPAK-VPX does not provide a PCIe or other serial fabric interface via the VPX bus. Please contact Zeli Systems if you require a serial fabric interface for the VPX bus. The PPS output from the GB-GRAM is available on the J2 front panel connector. The HAVE QUICK output from the GB-GRAM is available on the J2 front panel connector. DS-101 (RS-232) and DS-102 (KOI-18/KYK-13) key loading signals are provided on the 9-contact front-panel D-Subminiature connector labeled KEY. Primary GB-GRAM power is provided by the +5VDC pins on the VPX connector and converted to +3.3VDC required by the GB-GRAM. Auxiliary power to the GB-GRAM receiver is provided by +3.3VDC power pins on the VPX connector or an external auxiliary power source via the front panel connector J2.
