   Your choices are...         
   CompactPCI® Compliant       CompactPCI® is a very high performance industrial bus based on the electrical specifications of the PCI bus. It is built on rugged 3U or 6U Eurocard packaging. CompactPCI is a registered trademark of PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers' Group 
   PXITM Compliant       An extension of CompactPCI for measurement and automation. PXI was developed by National Instruments as an open industry standard. 
   Other       Other unlisted technology type. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Form Factor:      Card format is given in terms of (height x length). The height is expressed in units of 'U'.  The 'U' is a unit used for the front panel of cards.  Each 'U' is equal to 1.75 inches.  The length normally is in mm (millimeters). The most popular heights are:
  • 3U = 100 mm
  • 6U = 233 mm
The CompactPCI specifications recognizes two types of cards: A single height board, also known simply as a 3U card, is 100 mm x 160 mm with one 96 pin DIN connector (the J1connector) on the rear that plugs into the backplane.  A double height board, also known as a 6U card, is 233 mm x 160 mm and has a second 96 pin DIN connector (the J2 connector). Note: Normally the height of the card is measured in units of 'U'.  The length of the card is measured in terms of millimeters (mm).
   Your choices are...         
   3U       3U cards, also known as single height boards, are 100 mm x 160 mm with one 96 pin DIN connector (J1 connector) on the rear that plugs into the backplane. The bus width of a cPCI or PXI card with a 3U form factor is 32 bits. 
   6U       6U cards, also known as double height boards, are 233 mm x 160 mm with a second 96 pin DIN connector (J2 connector). The bus width of a cPCI or PXI card with a 6U form factor is 64 bits. 
   Other       Other unlisted form factors.

Interface to Other Buses
   Interface to Other Buses:       
   Your choices are...         
   SCSI       Small computer system interface (SCSI) is a parallel interface standard used by Apple Macintosh computers, PCs, and many UNIX systems for attaching peripheral devices to computers. 
   PCMCIA (PC Card)       PCMCIA devices (PC cards) are credit-card-sized peripherals predominantly used in laptop computers. The PCMCIA adapter takes the place of a COM port on a standard bus. The card is plugged into a 68-pin host socket that is connected either to the motherboard or an expansion bus. An adapter then translates the PCMCIA signals into signals usable by the computer's bus. 
   VME / VXI       VersaModule Eurocard bus (VMEbus) is a popular, 32-bit bus used in industrial, commercial and military applications. The VMEbus is based on the VME standard, which defines mechanical specifications such as board dimensions, connector specifications and enclosure characteristics, as well as the electronic specifications for sub-bus structures, signal functions, timing, signal voltage levels, and master/slave configurations.  The VMEbus uses 3U and 6U Eurocards, rugged circuit boards that provide a 96-pin plug instead of an edge connector for durability. Several VMEbus varieties are available.  VME extensions for instrumentation (VXI) is an electrical and mechanical standard used mainly with automatic test equipment (ATE). VXI allows equipment from different vendors to work together in a common control and packaging environment. 
   PMC       PMC is a form factor, not a bus. It is electrically equivalent to the PCI bus, but has a different shape and bus connectors. PMC is designed for rugged applications and provides a secure mounting platform for VME mezzanine boards. 
   GPIB (IEEE 488, HPIB)       The general-purpose interface bus (GPIB) is designed to connect computers, peripherals and laboratory instruments so that data and control information can pass between them. It was originally developed by Hewlett Packard (HP) and called the HPIB bus. GPIB is also know as the IEEE 488 bus, and is electrically equivalent to the IEC 625 bus.   
   Ethernet       Ethernet is a local area network (LAN) protocol that uses a bus or star typology and supports data transfer rates of 10 Mbps. The Ethernet specification is the basis for the IEEE 802.3 standard, which specifies the physical and lower software layers. To handle simultaneous demands, Ethernet uses carrier sense multiple access / collision detection (CSMA/CD) to monitor network traffic. 
   CANbus       Controller area network bus (CANbus) is a high-speed serial data network designed for harsh electrical environments. 
   DeviceNet       DeviceNet uses controller area network (CAN) network protocol to connect industrial devices such as limit switches, photoelectric cells, valve manifolds, motor starters, drives, and operator displays to programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and personal computers (PCs). 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary configuration.
