New TRENTON PCI Express® Backplanes Expand PCIe 3.0 I/O Card Support

Latest PCI Express 3.0 backplanes maximize standard PCIe plug-in card interface speeds while lowering data latencies in industrial workstations, servers and military computers.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 09, 2014

Trenton’s BPG8194, BPG8155, and BPG8150 are our latest PCI Express® 3.0 backplane products designed for industrial workstations, servers, military computers and small form factor enclosures.  These standard PICMG® 1.3 backplanes offer extended PCIe Express x16 plug in card support featuring the latest PCIe 3.0 high-speed, low data latency electrical interfaces.  The backplanes form the backbone of rackmount computer systems that support are large number of high-performance commercially available off-the-shelf option cards commonly utilized in industrial and military computing, GPGPU servers and workstations, and video display wall controllers.  The backplanes support a wide array of standard PICMG® 1.3 or SHB Express™ system host boards including Trenton’s popular dual processor BXT7059 and the upcoming THD8141 single-processor SHB.  A system designed with a one of these backplanes, COTS PCI Express 3.0 option cards and a Trenton system host board brings longevity, speed, flexibility and faster Mean Time To Repair (MTTR) to industrial, medical and military computing applications.
