General Specifications
   Board Function       
   Your choices are...         
   Passive Backplane       Passive backplanes contain circuitry for bus connectors and, in some cases, buffers and drivers.  
   Active Backplane       Active backplanes contain bus control circuitry as well as circuitry that is typically found on motherboards, except for the processor complex (e.g., CPU, chipset, cache, etc.). 
   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.
   Bus / Standard       
   Your choices are...         
   ISA / EISA       Industry standard architecture (ISA) is a standard for I/O buses that can handle 16-bit data transfers at a clock speed of 8 MHz. ISA is also capable of handling memory under 16 MB.  Extended ISA (EISA) is an enhanced version of the ISA bus. EISA buses run at 8 MHz, are capable of 32-bit data transfers, and can access all memory in the system. 
   PCI       Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) is a local bus system designed for high-end computer systems. PCI buses transfer 32 or 64 bits of data at a clock speed of 33 MHz. They also support 3 to 5 critical peripherals, which are either integrated directly onto the motherboard or added via expansion cards. PCI buses fully support cards that were developed for standard I/O buses. 
   PCI Express       Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCI-E) is a computer bus standard. 
   PISA       PISA buses can carry ISA / EISA and PCI bus signals. They use the same type of connectors as EISA buses, but require fewer pins than full PCI connectors. PISA buses have the same dimensions as ISA buses, but are smaller than typical PCI buses. An industrial single-board computer (SBC) with a PISA edge connector can, with a suitable backplane, connect to both ISA and PCI cards in the same system.  
   CompactPCI       Compact PCI (cPCI) is a high-performance industrial bus that uses the electrical standards of the PCI bus and is packaged in a Eurocard. Specifications for the CompactPCI bus are developed and maintained by the PCI Industrial Computers Manufacturers Group (PICMG). cPCI buses are used extensively in systems that require high-speed data transfers. Examples include data communication routers and switches, real-time machine control, real-time data acquisition, military systems, etc. 
   PXI       PCI eXtensions for Instrumentation (PXI) is a superset of CompactPCI that adds timing and triggering functions, imposes requirements for documenting environmental tests, and establishes a standard Windows-based software framework. 
   VME       VersaModule Eurocard (VME) is a rugged, 32-bit bus used in industrial, commercial and military applications. Several VME varieties are available. 
   VME64       VME64 is an expanded version of the VME bus that provides 64-bit data transfers and addressing. VME64 is a mechanical and electrical superset of the original VME specification (IEEE-1014-1987). Features include asynchronous transfers, an addressing range between 16 and 40 bits, data path widths between 8 and 64 bits, and a bandwidth of 80 MBps. 
   VME64x       VME64 Extended (VME64x) is an improved version of the VME64 bus that features a 160-pin connector family, 3.3 V power supply pins, bandwidths up to 160 MBps, injector/ejector locking handles and hot swap capability. The VME64x specifications were adopted in 1997 by the VMEbus International Trade Association (VITA) and its standards organization (VSO). 
   VME320       VME320 is a modified VMEbus that provides synchronous data transmission and a bandwidth range from 320 MBps to over 500 MBps. 
   VXI / MXI       VME eXtensions for Instrumentation (VXI) was developed by Motorola and is a standard for many electronic platforms. It defines electrical and mechanical backplane characteristics. Multisystem eXtension Interface (MXI) is a high-performance communication link that interconnects devices using a flexible cabling scheme. MXI is a general purpose, 32-bit multi-master system bus on a cable. It provides a high-performance way of controlling VXI systems using commercially available desktop computers and workstations. MXI devices can directly access each other's resources by performing simple read and write operations to appropriate address locations. The MXI-2 standard expands the number of signals on a standard MXI cable by exporting all VXI backplane signals such as VXI triggers, interrupt lines and system clocks directly to the cabled bus. 
   AdvancedTCA       Advanced Telecommunication Computing Architechture (AdvancedTCA) is an open industry specification for carrier grade equipment incorporating high-speed switching fabric technology capable of switching and processing 2.5 terabits per second in a single shelf. 
   ePCI-X       Embedded PCI eXtended (ePCI-X). 
   Other       Other unlisted bus types.
