Elma Rolls New Configurations for Power Interface Boards

2/18/2005 - Elma Electronic Inc., a global manufacturer of electronic packaging products, now offers Power Interface Boards (PIBs) in 3U and 6U versions with either one or two 47-pin power supply connectors. The PIBs are separate boards for the power section of the backplane used to facilitate pluggable power supplies, headers, and utility connectors.

The 3U and 6U power boards contain one or two 47-pin hot pluggable power supply connectors, and power taps for +5V, 3.3V, -12V, +12V, and GND. 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 PIBs interface 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. More information on Elma's PIB and other system accessories is available online at www.elma.com.
