F602 - CompactPCI Express Side Card (Product Discontinued)

The F602 is a 4HP CompactPCI Express extension card for 3U Intel-based CompactPCI single-board computers. It can be used in combination with the F14, F15, F17 and F18 CPU boards. That way, these CPU boards can be used both as system-slot cards in a CompactPCI environment and as system-slot cards on a CompactPCI Express backplane.

The F602 supports 4 PCI Express links with 1 lane each to the backplane via its XJ2 and XJ3 connectors. In a standard 8-slot hybrid backplane from Schroff the CompactPCI Express single-board computer sits in the middle, with the possibility to plug another three legacy CompactPCI cards to the left and three CompactPCI Express cards to the right.

In addition to the CompactPCI Express functionality the F602 provides one USB 2.0,one COM (RS232, RS422/485, with or without optical isolation via SA-Adapter) and one DVI port at its front panel.

On top of that an onboard 2.5" SATA hard-disk slot is available on the F602.

The F602 is directly plugged to the right side of the respective single-board computer. A robust connector makes for high mechanical stability. It is delivered with an 8HP front panel, replacing the 4HP front panel of a 3U single-board computer and thus resulting in a solid one-piece front panel.
