PCI Test Backplane
The Amfeltec PCI Test Backplane is designed to allow developers to produce, test and debug PCI-based peripheral boards with a host computer. This backplane expands the existing PCI slot of the host motherboard into four slots for devices to be tested. The PCI express host card connects to the PCI Express slot of the motherboard and the backplane connects to the host board with the help of a standard CAT6 cable and a 10 wires flat cable. This PCI Test Backplane prevents any damage to the host computer during programming, debugging and testing process while allowing you to keep the host computer away from the testing area to free up space.
Bus switches allows you to easily connect/disconnect the four 32-bit PCI connectors without shutting down the host system, allowing you to easily replace the plugged in devices and reducing the verifying and testing time. Each PCI connector has a dedicated power controller that is independent of each other and has over current and under voltage protection.
The four connectors provided on the PCI Backplane provide easy access to the PCI bus JTAG signals via an external programmer/emulator. These connectors allow you to run JTAG production tests, use the JTAG emulator debugging of devices under test, and/or use Amfeltec In-Circuit Programmer/Loader to program/load CPLD/FPGA/MCPU on the test unit during production or debugging cycle.
Surface mounted LEDs provided on the backplane indicate main power status, power controller status for each PCI slot and the upstream PCI express connection status. A debug connector is provided will all PCI signals, which aids in probing or connecting the signals to a logic analyser.
