The BPG6714 PCI Express Backplane

The BPG6714 also features one 64-bit/133MHz PCI-X and two 64-bit/100MHz PCI-X option card slots that are driven with a dual-channel PCIe-to-PCI-X bridge chip. The PCI-X slots can also support universal PCI I/O cards.

Designed to fit into a small chassis or embedded inside an OEM machine, the shoebox layout provides the capability for rackmount computer and storage system designs to support multiple small form factor backplanes / single board computers within a single enclosure.

Key Features

Key Features

Key features of the BPG6714 PCI Express backplane include:

  • Shoe-box form factor with one PICMG 1.3 SBC slot
  • 7-slot PCI Express backplane supports PCI Express and PCI-X/PCI plug-in I/O cards
  • Supports up to two PCI Express option cards
    • 1 – x16 PCI Express electrical / x16 mechanical driven directly from SBC
    • 1 – x4/x1 PCI Express electrical# / x8 mechanical driven directly from SBC via the optional IOB33 module
    • Link width is SBC dependent
  • Supports up to three PCI-X/PCI option cards
    • 1 – 64-bit/133MHz PCI-X
    • 2 – 64-bit/100MHz PCI-X

The BPG6714 PCI Express backplane is designed and manufactured in Trenton’s ISO 9001:2008 registered facilities and supported from within the USA.  This small form factor PCIe backplane is supported by a 5-year factory warranty.
