ComputeNode™ CompactPCI Chassis Products

PDSi’s ComputeNode line offers a range of NEBS Level 3-compliant CompactPCI chassis in sizes from 1U to 4U. These carrier-grade chassis include a horizontal design, superior air cooling, cPCI and cPSB (PICMG 2.16) backplanes, redundant hot-swappable fans, hot-swappable front-accessible AC or DC power supplies, and rear single or dual power feeds. All 2U and larger ComputeNode platforms include PDSi’s unique Alert!Node™ (or Enhanced Alert!Node) alarm card, an intelligent chassis management controller for comprehensive fan and power monitoring. The Alert!Node card does not occupy a CompactPCI slot, front or rear.

OEMs and Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) can also take advantage of PDSi’s design, integration, and support services, including custom board and system design, validation and certification, production assembly and test, as well as extended service programs.
