  • RoHS compliant

Features at a Glance
  • Board design based on the HIGH-SPEED DESIGN concept.  Low reflection is achieved by means of uniform signal surge impedance
  • Shielding of each individual signal line assures minimal coupling, even when expanded to the 64-bit mode with the 2e protocol (160 Mbytes/s)
  • Backplanes come with active-IN-ON-BOARD termination.  Active and passive termination versions are available
  • Active termination offers reduced closed-circuit consumption, Passive termination offers better frequency response and wider temperature range
  • Backplanes come with Electronic Automatic Daisy Chaining (OR gates are integrated into the backplane)
  • Solid electrically conductive chassis GND surface in the backplane to card rack area for EMC-tight mounting.  HF coupling of card rack and system ground is implemented by capacitors (10nF, 200V in each slot). 

    A combination M6 screw/Faston 6.3 x .8mm is provided for chassis ground connection
  • Main operating voltage is supplies via terminal bars with M6 screws
  • Utility connector included for power supply and external LED’s
