Express9 Express9-G3 expansion backplane datasheet

Express9
Express9-G3
9 Slot PCI Express Expansion Backplane
Advanced Graphics Display Technology
DESCRIPTION
The Datapath Express9 backplanes each provide nine PCI Express slots, 1 x8 lane and 8 x4 lane slots all implemented as x 16
physical connectors. They can be used with a standard PICMG 1.3 SBC as a stand alone system or in combination with the
multiple backplanes to provide a PCI Express expansion system for a standard PC.

•
Nine slot PCI Express backplane 1 x8 lane and 8 x4 lane slots
1 x PICMG 1.3 SBC slot
Standard ATX form factor
Support for daisy chaining multiple backplanes
Express9:
• Supports 4GB/s full duplex links between backplanes using
HLink-G3 and SLink-G3 (limited to Gen.1 and Gen.2)
• 48 lane PCI Express 2.0 switch (5.0 GB/s per lane)
Express9-G3
• Supports 8GB/s full duplex links between backplanes using
HLink-G3 and SLink-G3
• 48 lane PCI Express 3.0 switch
Expansion Link - HLink-G3, ExCable-G3 and SLink
The SLink cards can be used instead of a PICMG 1.3 SBC to configure the Express9 as an expansion backplane from a
standard PC or from other Express9 backplanes. The cards are now available with Gen.3 compatibility supporting the new
Datapath Express9-G3 backplane.
