6U cPCI 64-bit Test Extender


Measurement and testing of CompactPCI® assemblies in the 6U Euro-board form factor is greatly facilitated by the use of this test adapter. Easy access to the DUT is guaranteed because the adapter has plug-in connections on 3 sides. The Modern BRIDGE design permits up to 3 CompactPCI® cards and one standard PCI® card to be inserted in one CompactPCI® slot. This allows system developers to implement a large number of tests with little effort and enables you to achieve vital time to market.

Our extenders include a PCI Bridge. Some competitor products do not provide a PCI bridge, thus reducing a extender costs by tolerating a violation of the PCI specs. Overall PCI compatibility however is a must in order to achieve total reliability. Please bear these facts in mind, when comparing prices of PCI Extenders.

The front and lateral guides securely hold the test specimen. This test adapter can be easily used even in systems with over length cPCI cards (depth up to 220 mm).

Additional drivers are not needed. The PCI devices are detected by standard PCI BIOS.
