There are now 15 PCIe compatible devices in a choice of server-centric (from six to 19 slots) or graphic-centric (from five to 13 slots) provided. The features of the expanded family include a selection available for node chassis and rack mount chassis up to 4U, PCI-X buses that support up to 16 PCI-X expansion slots, PCIe x16, PCIe x8, PCIe x4 and PCIe x1 combinations, USB and SATA ports and support for legacy PCI slots. This makes the extended family of PICMG 1.3 industrial backplanes the ideal choice for applications in medical systems, semiconductor wafer inspection, system automation, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) X-ray inspection and the telecommunications markets.
