CT12 - Rear I/O Transition Module

The CT12 is a 3U CompactPCI rear I/O transition module for use in combination with MEN's PICMG 2.30-based single-board computers.

It is plugged onto J2 of the CompactPCI backplane system slot from the rear side and leads the rear-panel serial I/O signals to standard connectors.

The signals are two Gigabit Ethernet, four PCI Express x1 links, four USB and four SATA interfaces as defined by the PICMG 2.30 CompactPCI PlusIO specification.

In addition the board is equipped with a +5V connector for supplying the CT12.
