PBP-13D4 14 Slots Dual Isolated ISA/PCI Passive Backplane

14 Slot Active Backplane


Dual isolated passive backplane offers a simple method for hosting two SBC motherboard in a single 4U rackmount enclosure. In a situation where you need have two independent industrial computer running in a limited rack space , you need to use a segmented backplane. PBP-13D4 offers 2 segmented data bus backplane which allows you to power on two SBC card in the same enclosure without sharing PCI and ISA data bus. The only thing these SBC card share is the power source. Please check with your chassis manufacture to ensure their chassis supports proper mounting for passive or active backplane boards.

What is the difference between Passive backplane and Active backplane?

The key difference between passive backplane and active backplane is the number of PCI or PCI express slots on the backplane. For most of the standard passive backplane, the maximum number of PCI slot is 4. These 4 PCI slots are controlled by the onboard PCI chipset on the SBC Card. If you need more than 4 slots of PCI bus, your backplane board needs to have a PCI bridging chipset to expand the number of PCI slot on the backplane. Any backplane board comes with bridging chipset is consider as active backplane board.

What type of power supply do you need to power segmented backplane ?

You will need to use ATX style of power supply that provides 20 Pins or 24 pins ATX connector. You can also use a AT power supply that provides P8 and P9 connector
