cPCI 6U Platform
CompactPCI combines the advantages of the PCI bus with the needs of the industrial user. CompactPCI uses wellknown and stable 19" technology and offers robust systems for industrial needs. The defined cooling power and the robust connector extend the life of the product. CompactPCI systems are defined in two different sizes: 6U and 3U. The CompactPCI 6U products from Spectrum have the same product range as the PCI pendants (former MI series).
The 3U and the 6U card size have the very same connector type. Therefore any CompactPCI (or PXI) 3U card fits into a 6U slot. The Spectrum cards do only support 33 MHz 32 bit interface. Any other connection type can be used but has no advantage compared to the standard interface.
