Packaging & Interconnections: CompactPCI Extender Boards Facilitate Card Testing/Debugging

New rear CompactPCI extender boards are designed to bring a circuit card completely out of a card cage or enclosure for testing or debugging. As a result, access is possibe to both sides of the test board. Injector/ejector latches with ergonomic handles make it easy to insert and remove cards. They also hold the board firmly to the chassis, increasing connection reliability. This is done without using set screws, which can be inconvenient. Extender boards come in VME, VME64x, CompactPCI, and VXI form factors. Pricing for the system accessories start under $100.00, with a one- to two-week lead time.
