ERNI Introduces a New VME 64 Extension Backplane

11/18/2002 - ERNI has enhanced the range of standard backplanes with a new VME64 extension (VME 64x) backplane. This backplane has been specially designed for VME64 extensions computer systems. It meets requirements for real time processing in the case of multi-processor operation by additional I/0s in the P0 area. This predestines the new backplane for high performance applications in PLCs, robot controls or video image processing.

The 7U backplane is 303.8 mm x 305.5 mm and provides 15 slots. The essential electrical characteristics include automatic electronic daisy chaining, passive termination, and optional hot swap support. The new backplane supports a full 64 bit data and add bus. The full stripline design ensures a controlled impedance of 55 ohms. Decoupling capacitors are provided for all power planes and the fully shielded 10 layer design provides ideal EMC characteristics.

The standard backplane is provided with class II DIN 41612 connectors and shrouds on the rear side for I/O connections. Threaded studs are provided for wiring attachment to the +3.3V, +5V and ground backplane bus bars. A utility header is provided to access system control signals.

ERNI Elektroapparate GmbH, a German member company of the international ERNI Holding Group, was established in1956. At Adelberg (near Göppingen) and in Chester, Virginia (USA), ERNI develops and produces a wide range of connectors for backplane and printed circuit board applications, which was even further expanded by the takeover of Maxconn. In the system technology sector, customer-specific printed circuit board systems and backplanes were developed, which are produced in backplane shops in Germany, USA and Korea. In the financial year 2001 ERNI achieved a turnover of more than Euro 150 million with more than 750 employees. ERNI is globally active and has its own branches in all important industrial regions. The products are also sold via a network of representatives and leading distributors such as Arrow and RS.
