Multi-Interface Test Backplane with ExpressCard Host
The Amfeltec SKU-047-02 Multi-Interface Test Backplane is a perfect tool for software and hardware designers that allow them to add different device with different interfaces to a host computer using a single backplane. This backplane is connected to the host computer with the help of an ExpressCard host card, a Cat6 Ethernet cable and a control flat cable. The host card connects to the host computer and the backplane connects to the host card with the help of the cables provided.
Multiple Interfaces Supported
This backplane supports devices with 32-bit PCI, x16 PCI Express, ExpressCard, MiniPCI, MiniPCI Express or PMC interface and eliminates the risk of damaging the devices during programming, testing and debugging processes. It allows you to easily plug-in or plug-out the test boards; live-insertion function allows you to replace the boards without shutting down the host system and overcurrent protection keeps the test boards safe from any electrical hazards.
Locate Test Backplane away from Host PC
As the cables used to connect the host computer and test backplane are flexible, they allow you to keep the host computer away from the backplane, freeing up the working area and eliminating the possible of induction of noise in the system.
Hot-Swap Power Controllers
With three independent hot-swap power controllers, this test backplane allows you to shut down the power of each of the local interfaces that include PCI interface, PCI Express Interface and ExpressCard® interface in case of overcurrent or under voltage condition. The SW1 is a local power switch, provided on the board, gives control over all power-controllers and can be used to power down local interfaces without affecting the operation of the host computer. This feature allows you to easily replace PCI/PCI express cards, saving a significant amount of time.
The JTAG connectors provided on the test backplane allow connection of 32 bit PCI connector and x16 PCI express connector, and give access PCI/PCI express bus JTAG signals PCI/PCI express bus JTAG signals. 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.
This test backplane comes with surface-mount LEDs that indicate the power status and status of the upstream and downstream PCI express connections.
Two mechanical support tabs provided on the backplane promote mechanical stabilization of add-in PCI express card plugged into the x16 PCI Express connector (U.S. Patent 7,255,750).
The backplane is powered by a standard 12V power supply that can be connected to the backplane via 2.1 mm jack connector or standard DIN-5 connector.
