We have an application note, the GTL/BTL designers guide on the TI web.
Please reference this for information on the family and design considerations.
We are working on a backplane reference design for the GTL16622, and are
using 16 slots across a 14" backplane. We do not have any results yet but
once available, we shall send them to you. Please let us know what your concerns
are and we could incorporate them in the final appnote when we have it.
Thanks for your interest in GTL. Please call me if you have any specific
