Paul,
I'm not sure that I completely understand your predicament, but we have
made flexible extension cable for backplanes using our controlled impedance
cable. We also sell a cable that's used to bridge PCI busses.

Can you give me some additional detail regarding your design?

Subject: [SI-LIST] : Flexible and Passive PCI Backplane?

Dear Si-List,

I'm trying to fit three or four PCI cards, one being a single-board
computer, to a passive PCI backplane that must fit into a 1 RU
(1.75" high) chassis. One suggestion is to use a flex circuit for the
backplane and then fold it horseshoe style in order to have the
cards 'butterfly' one or two on each side.

Does anybody know of a source for such a backplane? Does
anyone have any other suggestion for getting that many PCI
cards into a 1 RU package?

Thank you in advance,

Paul Levin
