Backplanes are available in two PICMG® standards … PICMG® 1.0 and PICMG® 1.3.  Those that are based on PICMG® 1.0 are legacy products that support older PCI and ISA cards.  Those that are based on the PICMG® 1.3 specifications support PCIexpress as well as PCI cards.

Our PICMG® 1.3 backplanes are available in a variety of form factors to support the wide variety of computer system designs.


PICMG 1.3 13-slot Switched Backplane (1 PCIe x16/7 PCIe x4/1 CPU/4 PCI)

PICMG 1.3 12-slot Bridged Backplane (1 PCIe x16/3 PCIe x4/1 CPU/7 PCI)

PICMG 1.3 5-slot 2U Butterfly Backplane (1 PCIe x16/1 PCIe x4/1 CPU/2 PCI)
