PICMG 1.3 - 4 Slots backplane. 1 – x4 PCI Express 2.0, 3 – x16 PCI Express 2.0. Compact 2U butterfly Backplane



  • PICMG 1.3 Series BPC8219 2U backplane supports one PICMG 1.3 Series single board computer and up to four PCI Express option cards. Ideal for short-depth 2U chassis, the BPC8219 backplane allows for either a dual Xeon or single Core series processor board with four PCIe slots.
  • All card slots are designed for the Gen2 PCIe electrical interface and are equipped with x16 PCIe mechanical connectors. Note that the three x16 PCIe 2.0 slots route through a high-speed PCIe switch.



Model BPC8219
Form Factor 2U Butterfly, one segment
Mechanical Board dimensions: 13.067″ x 3.307″
The nominal backplane thickness is 0.080”; however, the backplane mounting holes are recessed 0.018” on the bottom to provide an effective PCB thickness of 0.062” for use in the chassis design process.
