PICMG 2.16-Compliant Board Meets 6U CompactPCI Needs

A dual PMC PICMG 2.16-compliant carrier board is now available for 6U CompactPCI applications. Blade Runner 500 makes it easy to mix and match CPUs and I/O interfaces. It fits a wide variety of high-density applications, like edge access devices, routers, soft-switch applications, and storage area networks based on standard CompactPCI or PICMG 2.16 specifications. Fully hot-swappable, Blade Runner 500 facilitates changing out or upgrading CPUs or I/O cards without replacing the carrier card. It accommodates either two I/O or CPU cards, or one of each. The Blade Runner 500 carrier board costs under $1000 in OEM quantities.
