  • The HDB8231 HDEC Series large format backplane delivers the benefits of the High Density Embedded Computing architecture to up to eighteen (18) PCI Express commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) plug-in option cards.  The design of the backplane leverages the eighty (80) lanes of Gen3 PCI Express from the dual Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3 series processors on an HEP8225 HDEC Series system host board to maximize system longevity and application flexibility.

    Unique to the HDB8231 is the switchless architecture which reduces cost while reducing PCI Express latencies, compared to previous system designs, such as the PICMG 1.3 standard.

    Additional benefits of the HDB8231 HDEC Series large format backplane include support for many of the I/O connectors on an HDEC Series system host board such as USB2.0/3.0 and SATA/600 for streamlined system cable routing.  This enhances system MTTR and reduces obstructions in the chassis which might impede airflow, resulting in more effective cooling of internal components and, ultimately, longer system life.

    The HDB8231 Features Include:
    • 20-slot form factor
    • HDEC System Host Board and up to eighteen PCI Express option cards
    • x16 PCIe mechanical connectors
    • 2 – x8 PCI Express 3.0 electrical
    • 16 – x4 PCI Express 3.0 electrical
    • ATX/EPS power source – one right-angle 24-position ATX/EPS connector
    • +12V AUX power source – two right-angle 8-position connectors
    • one 10-position terminal block to supply additional power if needed
