PCI/PCIe Extension Backplane, 10ft, ExpressCard Host
The Amfeltec SKU-075-03 PCI / PCIe Expansion Backplane comes with four 32-bit PCI and two x16 PCI express slots. The connection between the host computer and the expansion backplane is established via a standard 3m (10-foot) Cat 6 cable, a 10-wire flat cable and one ExpressCard host board. The ExpressCardhost board connects to the ExpressCard connector of the host laptop computer.
Use in a Computer Case
Thanks to the ATX Specification 2.0, the standard mounting holes provided on the backplane are perfectly sized that allows fitting of this backplane in any general purpose computer chassis. Due to the power load circuit provided on the backplane, it can be powered by any ATX power supply without minimum power load limitation. The x16 PCI Express connector provided on the backplane features one PCI Express lane.
The backplane can be operated without computer chassis as well. To allow this both the x16 PCI Express connectors have support spacers that aid mechanical stabilization of add-in x1 PCI express boards (U.S. Patent 7,255,750). The backplane features LEDs mounted on its surface and provide an easy visual check for the main powers (+5V, +12V, +3.3V, -12V, +5VSB), backplane operation status and status of the upstream ExpressCard connection.
