Our PBER 06R PICMG 1.3 backplane provides support for three high-speed PCI
Express (PCIe) slots in place of older ISA slots. Now you can use PCIe cards in
passive-backplane systems and your industrial PICMG 1.3 PC systems can include
the latest high-speed video and data-acquisition cards alongside two standard
The PICMG 1.3 bus carries all the signals for up to 16 traditional PCI cards
and five or more PCIe cards -- far beyond what motherboard systems allow. You
can design powerful systems with up to 19 expansion-card slots.
PICMG 1.3 backplanes also handle more power. Traditional PICMG 1.0
full-length cards could safely pull up to 227 watts from the backplane. PICMG
1.3 cards can draw up to 500 watts without damage. This not only makes them more
robust, but also provides support for modern dual-processor systems and
Our PICMG 1.3 passive
backplanes require PICMG 1.3 single-board computers (CPU cards) such as our CEGA and CEGB boards.
