2/23/2004 - Bustronic Corporation, an industry leading designer and manufacturer of high performance backplanes, is expanding its PIB (Power Interface Board) line with a new 6U model. The 6U PIB is a separate board for the power section of the backplane used to facilitate pluggable power supplies, headers, and utility connectors.
The 6U power boards contain two 47-pin hot pluggable power supply connectors, and power taps for +5V, 3.3V, -12V, +12V, and GND. The PIB interfaces to the backplane via power bugs with 6/32 screws. The design also includes mounting holes, allowing the PIB to be securely fixed to the chassis. Other features include a header for voltage sense and current sharing, an IPMB interface, an ATX power connector, an auxiliary/disk drive connector, and a power switch header. The sense lines help the power supply better regulate the power at the load end. The share lines allow multiple PIBs to be connected to the power supplies. The IPMB interface is compliant to system management specification PICMG 2.9 Rev. 1.0. The PIB is also designed to comply with the power interface specification PICMG 2.11 Rev. 1.0 and with the IEEE 1101.10 mechanical specification.
The new 6U Power Interface Boards are currently available. Bustronic also offers versions in 3U height. More information is available online at www.bustronic.com under the Accessories section.
