?Backplanes?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release System host board for energy and medical sectors from Kontron, which we summarised at the time by saying "Kontron has introduced the PICMG 1.3 system host PCI-761, a slot-card-sized industrial server board equipped with the Intel Q57 Express chipset for asynchronous real-time applications.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release PCE-5125 board ideal for industrial applications from Advantech: "Advantech has introduced the PCE-5125 PICMG 1.3 form-factor single-host board, designed with the Intel Q57/3450 Express platform for industrial applications that require high computing power.".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Axiomtek - take a look at SHB105 computer for network-intensive applications which says: "Axiomtek has launched the SHB105 PICMG 1.3 single-board computer for security applications and network-intensive applications such as NVR, DVR and visual inspection instruments. ".

Take a look also at the news release from Elma Electronic, VXS backplanes enable out-of-band communication, as well as Elma VXS backplanes enable system management from Elma Electronic, and Subrack ideal for Euroboards in 3U and 6U formats from Rittal.
