PCI 32 bit Bus Extenders .... Bus Isolation, Wearout, offset, Right Angle and Regular extenders ....

Picture of PCIX32PCIX32 is a Bus Isolation Extender that allows the user to test the 32 bit PCI add-on boards quickly, without having to power the system down each time. It is especially designed to save valuable labor and time in the production environment. It is also a great tool for engineers, during product development, where changes and testing are required. It has many outstanding features such as, local or external power and signal isolation controls and fused power lines with short circuit sensing, etc. It also allows current measurement and voltage margin from external sources. The latest version supports the WOL function and the PCIX spec. The dimension is 7.6" L x 2.3" H. PCIX32 Specification PCIX32 user's manual


Picture of PCIFLIPPCI-FLIP is a PCI extender with the signals routed 180 degree out of phase. It is designed for users that need to insert their PCI I/O boards in testing environment in the same orientation as the ISA boards. User need to specify the VIO version, when ordering. Add -3 for VIO=3.3V version, -5 for VIO=5V version (default). The dimension is 3.5" L x 2.7" H.


Picture of PCIEX4PCIEX4 is a regular PCI extender. It features pluggable fuses, power indicating LEDs, header pins for logic analyzer hook up, prototype area and optional right angle PCI connector (on solder side), at upper or lower position. By changing the position of the pluggable fuses, it allows power from the motherboard or from an external source to power the PCI board, on top of the PCIEX4 extender. Therefore, the voltage margin can be performed through an external power source and current measurement can be performed by removing the fuse and bridged with an ammeter. An extra row of ground pins is placed next to the header pins, so users with high speed probes can have many closely grounded points. The latest version supports the PCIX spec. Add -3 for VIO=3.3V version, -5 for VIO=5V version (default), -TH for a right angle connector, on A side, at upper location option, -TL for a right angle connector, on A side, at lower position option.
