PICMG Passive Backplanes look much like standard ISA passive backplanes with a connections for the ISA bus and the root PCI bus. The boards in a simple “passive backplane” system have both PCI and ISA connectors. These backplane connections include a dedicated system slot of the PICMG CPU and various connections for standard ISA and PCI peripheral cards.
Our PCI Series Passive Backplanes support PICMG 1.0 boards, while our PE, SPE, SPEX. PXE, and HPXE2 Series Passive Backplanes support PICMG 1.3 compatible cards.
