Pixus also offers OpenVPX backplanes to VITA 66 for Optical and VITA 67 for RF. The company has a wide range of backplane/chassis options for other architectures, such as MicroTCA and AdvancedTCA.

Pixus now provides configuration/integration options, including SBCs, switches, system managers, FPGAs, and specialty boards from key partners.

Pixus also has an extensive offering of VME-based and cPCI-based solutions. In May 2011, Pixus Technologies became the sole authorized North and South American supplier of the electronic packaging products previously offered by Kaparel Corporation and Rittal.
