DXM/64x64 and DXM/128x128 Mainframe Chassis
Product Details ( pdf Bulletin )
These Chassis provide a non-blocking, full fan-out matrix in any configuration from 16x16 to 128x128 or larger. Both systems are capable of switching high speed differential CML up to 2.5 Gbps but are most commonly used for ECL, LVDS, LVPECL, Spacewire or RS422.
Input and Output buffer modules allow any signal type to be switched to other signals types so you can convert RS422 into LVDS or any other conversion through the switch.
The systems use high density Densi-shield cables which are taken out to patch panels for whatever type of connector you may need. This allows for ease of installation and very low MTTR since the can be removed from the rack in minutes.
Buffer modules are modular and can be changed if future needs require different signal types.
Systems may be configured as dual 32x32 or dual 64x64 for Clock and Data signals.
Densi-shield cables are rated to 2 Gbps over lengths up to 10 Meters and a single .250" cable replaces 16 individual coax lines for cleaner installations.
Patch panels are available for almost any connector such as SMA, BNC, Twinax, Triax or D types.

Patch Panels are available or a variety of connectors. These 19" rack Mount 1 RU panels convert the Densi-shield connectors into whatever type of connector is needed for your system. The Most common connectors are:
BNC or SMA with separate connectors for + and - signals
Triax connectors with + and - on each connector.
D9 connectors with clock and data on each connector
Spacewire Patch Panels with MDM9 connectors per the ESA specification now available for Spacewire Data / Strobe systems!
