Elma Bustronic Unveils 3U 32-bit CompactPCI Backplane

Elma Bustronic, an industry leading designer and manufacturer of high performance backplanes, has developed a new 3U 32-bit CompactPCI (cPCI) backplane in a 6-slot size. The new 32-bit version cPCI offers hundreds of I/O pins across the backplane that on the 64-bit version are defined and therefore unavailable.

The Bustronic 32-bit backplane line currently includes a 6U 8-slot and 3U versions in 3, 6, and 8 slots. The company also offers a wide range of 64-bit cPCI backplanes, one of the largest PICMG 2.16-compliant packet switching lines in the industry, and various other CompactPCI accessories.
