The SKU-076-01 PCIe Expansion Backplane is a universal expansion solution that comes with four x16 PCI express slots. This backplane connects to the host computer with the help of a 1.5m (5-foot) Cat6 Ethernet cable, 5-wire flat control cable and a PCI Express host board. The PCI Express host board is connected to the PCI express connector of the host computer's motherboard. This host board is connected to the main backplane with the help of two cables.
The power load circuit of the backplane allows operation with the ATX power supply without minimum power load limitation and the standard mounting holes, based on ATX Specification 2.0, allow installation of the backplane in any general purpose computer chassis.
The LEDs mounted on the surface of the backplane provide a convenient visual indication for the main power (+5V, +12V, +3.3V, -12V, +5VSB), backplane operation status and status of the upstream PCI express connection.
All four of the x16 PCI Express connectors have one PCI Express lane each. They also have the support spacer for mechanical stabilization of add-in x1 PCI express boards (U.S. Patent 7,255,750), which allow using the backplane without a computer chassis.
