CompactPCI Serial is an industrial standard for modular computer systems. It is based on the established PICMG 2.0 CompactPCI standard, which uses the parallel PCI bus for communication among a system’s card components. In contrast to this, CompactPCI Serial uses only serial point-to-point connections. CompactPCI Serial was officially adopted by the PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group PICMG as PICMG CPCI-S.0 CompactPCI Serial in March 2011. This standard transitions the existing CompactPCI parallel bus architecture to serial high-speed interconnects. Switches and bridges are not needed for a system configuration of one system slot and up to eight peripheral slots. Using a new rugged connector allows for a signal density of up to 184 pin pairs (3U) and transmission frequencies of 12 Gb/s, while maintaining the proven 19” mechanics of IEC 1101 and hot swap.
As the established PICMG 2.0 CompactPCI standard has evolved, so has Hartmann Electronic’s product line. Our cPCI Serial solutions are designed with quality and versatility in mind. Our Serial backplane technology come equipped with either single star or serial mesh topology for the highest quality and most efficient backplane experience on the market.
