CompactPCI® StarFabric Specification


The objective of the CompactPCI® StarFabric Specification is to define backplane, node board, and switch board requirements that are compatible with both the StarFabric Architecture Specification and appropriate existing PICMG Specifications. This specification will provide designers, manufacturers, and integrators with a common set of requirements for implementing backplanes, boards, PMC modules, chassis and multi-chassis combinations to deliver the benefits of StarFabric interconnect, including high bandwidth (>5Gbps per slot), scalability up to 1000’s of nodes, high-availability features, PCI-compatibility and the ability to carry control, TDM, cell and packet data on a single interconnect.
