Backplane Designer's Guide: Mechanical Considerations
More InfoLess Info
The application and performance requirements of a backplane will define its physical layout and size. When the minimum physical structure requirements are known, the form factor can be selected. Application and performance requirements also help the designer decide if the backplane will be a full custom design, a completely packaged protocol, or some point in between. Performance requirements will also define minimum requirements for chassis or cage, card selection, and backplane connectors.
