Passive Backplanes

Advantech’s full size and half PICMG 1.0 & PICMG 1.3 Passive Backplanes are designed for use with Advantech’s PICMG 1.0/PICMG 1.3 Single Board computers and Advantech’s wall mount, desktop and rackmount chassis. Usually, you will find a backplane solution present where ISA slots are required, the chassis selected only accommodates a passive backplane and single board computer or the amount of expansion slots required exceeds the amount found on an ATX Motherboard or server board. With the above stated, all Advantech passive backplanes either provide access to all ISA, all PCI, ISA/PCI or PCI/PCIe slot configurations.

One thing to keep in mind is that a PICMG 1.0 backplane must only be paired with a PICMG 1.0 Single Board Computer and will only provide access to the use of ISA & PCI slots for your expansion cards. The amount of either slot, along with the combination of slots will be dependent on the chassis form factor and size of backplane required for that specific chassis. The same can also be said for any PICMG 1.3 Passive Backplane, meaning only PICMG 1.3 Single Board Computer can be utilized with a PICMG 1.3 backplane and only PCI & PCIe slots will be accessible for I/O card installation. Depending on the amount of the slots the selected chassis supports, along with the backplane selected will determine the amount and type of PCI/PCIe slots available to you for I/O card installation.
