Termination networks are required at either end of the VMEbus backplane
and can be supplied either “on-board” (where they are soldered directly
into the backplane) or “off-board” (were they are mounted to pluggable
modules that fit to the rear of the backplane).
VME Service Header
J1 Connector Options
Bus Grant (BG) and Interrupt Acknowledge (Iack) lines of the VME bus need
to be daisy-chained in vacant slots for the system to correctly function.
The most common method of doing this is to use auto-bus granting (ABG)
connectors; although a manual option (by positioning jumpers over pins
between vacant slots) is also available.

Backplane Width
Due to the width of the 160mm connector and real estate required for the
termination networks, it is necessary to increase the width of the 2, 3 & 4
slot backplanes by 1 slot. They are therefore mechanically 3, 4 & 5 slots wide
respectively, the extra slot being to the right of slot “n” when viewed from the
connector side. 5-21 slot backplanes are true widths.

Backplanes and Extender Boards – VXI
Introduction
The specification governing VXIbus – an acronym for VMEbus eXtension for
Instrumentation – defines the use of 4 x bus module sizes (fig.1), with the
“A” and “B” modules being the same as 3U & 6U VMEbus cards. Although the
VXI specification, broadly speaking, follows the VME standards, it includes
defined functions on the P2 conneector and a further set of functions on
the P3 connector. The most important variation in the two standards arises
from the fact that any VXIbus instruments incorporated in a system must be
capable of being physically screened against EMC on all sides with a provision for additional chassis screening between instruments.
The Verotec range of VXI backplanes include “C” size (6U) and “D” size (9U)
formfactors in a variety of slot widths which fully conform with the latest
revision (rev.1.4) to the VXIbus specification. As with all our backplanes, we
are able to offer semi or fully customised versions to suit unique applications

Backplanes and Extender Boards – VPX (VITA 46)
Introduction
Defense and aerospace system designers are looking to serial switch fabric
architectures to provide an interconnect able to deliver cost-effective systems
with bandwidth and performance levels unreachable by traditional VME-bused
systems. While VME continues to provide an excellent solution for a great number
of applications, it is unable to provide the bandwidth and performance required to
address new specialized multiprocessing tasks.
VPX (VITA 46) is one of two new standards recently developed to address
demanding applications that require throughput greater than 320 Mbytes/s and
to provide multiprocessing and streaming I/O beyond the capability of VME’s
parallel bus architecture
The new, rugged, conduction-cooled board architecture is targeted at switched
fabric signaling rates of up to 6.25 Gbits/s, exceeding VME’s limit of about 1
Gbits/s. VPX uses the high-speed multi-gig connector in a mesh topology, vastly
increasing the potential bandwidth of the system, while maintaining backward
compatibility with legacy VME technology via preservation of the VMEbus 6U
mechanical form factor and through-mapping of the current VMEbus signals to
the VITA 46 connectors.
VPX combines best-in-class technologies to assure a very long technology cycle
similar to that of the original VMEbus solutions. Traditional parallel VMEbus will
continue to be supported by VPX through bridging schemes that assure a solid
migration pathway.
Verotec’s expertise in Backplane technology and its resources in the latest,
sophisticated design tools have been applied to produce a unique range of VPX
Backplanes, including hybrid versions that incorporate the standard 160mm DIN
connector, allowing backward compatibility with VME64x. The VPX Backplanes
match performance and cost-effectiveness by realising a fully optimised
signal and power distribution environment. Design techniques ensure uniform
impedance controlled signaling environment and ground guarding minimises
line-to-line crosstalk.

Backplanes and Extender Boards – VXS (VITA 41)
Introduction
Defense and aerospace system designers are looking to serial switch fabric
architectures to provide an interconnect able to deliver cost-effective systems with bandwidth and performance levels unreachable by traditional
VME-bused systems. While VME continues to provide an excellent solution
for a great number of applications, it is unable to provide the bandwidth and
performance required to address new specialized multiprocessing tasks.
VXS (VITA 41) is one of two new standards recently developed to address
demanding applications that require throughput greater than 320 Mbytes/s
and to provide multiprocessing and streaming I/O beyond the capability of
VME’s parallel bus architecture.
VXS stands for VMEbus Switched Serial Standard. The standard is VITA 41.
VXS has the same form factor as standard VME boards, but uses a different
type of P0 connector and a different electrical interface.
The VXS specification defines 2 types of boards: Payload cards and Switch
cards. Payload cards are standard VME64x boards with a new PO connector
for serial links. Switch cards are not backward compatible with the legacy
VMEbus standard via P1 and P2 connectors.
VXS Backplanes may operate in a number of configurations; Star, Dual-Star,
Mesh, or Daisy-Chain. VXS supports InfiniBand bus, Serial RapidIO, Gigabit
Ethernet, and PCI Express Bus.

Backplanes and Extender Boards – CompactPCI (Standard Hot Swap)
Introduction
CompactPCI is an adaptation of the Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI)
Specification, revision 3, for industrial and/or embedded applications that require
a more robust mechanical form-factor than the normal desktop PCI.
CompactPCI ®
CompactPCI uses industry standard mechanical components, such as Verotec’s
KM6-RF subrack, high-performance connector technologies and cost-effective
PCI components to provide an optimised system solution which is electrically
compatible with the PCI specification but ideal for applications in a more rugged
environment.
Supported, and controlled, by PICMG (PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers
Group), CompactPCI is an open specification. PICMG is a consortium of companies involved in utilizing PCI for embedded applications.
Standard 3U & 6U Hot Swap CompactPCI Backplane
Our standard range of high performance, hot swap CPCI backplanes are available
in 3U and 6U form factors and from 2 to 16 slots wide*. The generic base design

Backplanes and Extender Boards – CompactPCI (CT/H.110 & Ethernet/2.16)
CompactPCI Computer Telephony / H.110 Backplanes
The primary objective of Computer Telephony (CT) is to extend the capabilities
of the 6U CompactPCI form factor to support the application needs of the
telecommunications industry.
The PICMG Computer Telephony and ECTF (Enterprise Computer Telephony
Forum) H.110 requirements define the industry standards for CompactPCI and
CT system vendors products, ensuring multi-vendor interoperability based on
an open architecture. These computer telephony specifications define the use
of IEEE 1101.10/11 for mechanics and hardware.
On CT/H.110 backplanes, the P4 connector is used for implementing the H.110
TDM bus signals as well as the telecom power rails and control signals. It has
3 different mating length pins and is selectively loaded in order to meet the
hazardous voltage safety requirements. The P5 connector is used for telephony
I/O with 3 mating levels provided according to the pin assignments.
Features
The features described below are in addition to those described on the
previous page for standard hot swap CompactPCI backplanes.

PICMG 2.16 supplements the robust, reliable and hot-swap capable
CompactPCI architecture with the easily integrated, low-cost, highperformance, and extensible Ethernet. The 2.16 specification extends rather
than replaces CompactPCI because it over-lays, on the P3 connector, up to
two embedded switched Ethernet networks in a star-topology. Slots can be
routed either as “Fabric” or “Node” slots with a separate system / controller
slot if required.

Backplanes and Extender Boards – PXI
Introduction
PXI (CompactPCI eXtensions for Instrumentation) was developed to fulfil the
requirements of users, primarily of instrumentation and automation systems,
who needed increased performance, reliability and functionality from compact,
PC based systems. In order to allow users to benefit from existing software and
component availability, PXI maintains compatibility with industry standard PCs.
PXI adopts the electrical specification of the Peripheral Component Interface
(PCI) and the physical specification and high performance connectors and rugged
packaging systems of CompactPCI. This permits both PXI and CompactPCI to
implement up to seven peripheral slots as opposed to four in a conventional
PCI system. By employing PCI-PCI bridges systems can be configured which
accomodate a higher number of slot positions.
The PXI specification introduces electrical features such as triggering and system
clock capabilities to satisfy the requirements of high performance instrumentation
applications, as well as offering two-way interoperability with CompactPCI
products. In common with CompactPCI, PXI can draw on a large, standing base of
industry-standard software, ranging from a low-level device driver via operating
systems to complete, high-level graphical Application Programming Interfaces.
PXI also implements VISA (Virtual Instrumentation Software Architecture), used
to locate - and communicate with - serial, VXI and GPIB interface modules. The
capabilities of VISA is extended by PXI beyond the limits of these interfaces,
allowing for the loctaion and control of PXI modules. The instrumentation
software model adopted by the instrumentation community is preserved by PXI.
