Tech Specs

Model Number
Form Factor

14-slot form factor supports one JXT6966 PICMG 1.3 SHB and up to ten PCI Express option cards


Board dimensions: 12.3” x 12.9” with a minimum drive tower cut-out of 13.41 square inches

The nominal backplane thickness is 0.080”; however, the backplane mounting holes are recessed 0.018” on the bottom to provide an effective PCB thickness of 0.062” for use in the chassis design process.

12.3″ x 12.9″

Server or Graphics:  Nine PCIe x4 (x16 mechanical) plus one PCIe x1 (x8 mechanical) slots driven directly from the SHB.

Note 1: Optional IOB33 module required to provide a x1 PCIe electrical link to backplane slot PCIe5.  The x1 PCIe link width is established by the JXT6966 system host board.  Backplane slot PCIe5 is a PCIe 1.1 interface only.

Note 2: Optional PEX10 module provides PCIe Gen 2.0 links from processor two of the Trenton JXT6966 SHB to BPC7041 backplane slots PCIe1 through PCIe4.

Note 3: Backplane slot PCIe10 is a PCIe 1.1 slot only.

Note 4: Backplane slots PCIe1 through PCIe4 and PCIe6 through PCIe9 may operate as either PCIe 2.0 or PCIe 1.1 slots depending on the end point devices connected to these slots.

Card Slots
  • 5 – x4 PCI Express 2.0/1.1 electrical / x16 mech. connectors
  • 4 – x4 PCI Express 2.0/1.1 electrical* / x16 mech. connectors
  • 1 – x4/x1 PCI Express 2.0/1.1 electrical# / x8 mech. connector

*Requires PEX10 option on SBC
#From IOB3x on SBC / link width SBC dependent

Suggested SHB/SBCs
Dual-processor single board computers: BXT7059, JXT6966
SHB Configuration
Trenton BXT7059 or  JXT6966 PICMG 1.3 SBC with optional PEX10 and IOB33 plug-in modules attached are required to drive all available option card slots.
