The SA1-FUSION is a peripheral slot board for PICMG® CompactPCI® Serial systems and acts as carrier for a low profile PCI Express® card. The SA1-FUSION is provided with a PCIe x8 connector (option x4, x1) and accommodates a PCIe card with dimensions up to 147mm x 83.75mm.
With respect to the PCIe x8 connector, the SA1-FUSION is equipped with the backplane connectors P1/P2 for support of up to 8 PCI Express® lanes when inserted into a CompactPCI® Serial Fat Pipe Slot. On the x1 or x4 SA1-FUSION versions, only P1 is populated.
The SA1-0100-FUSION requires only a single PCI Express® lane from the backplane, passed over across the connector P1 to the on-board PCIe x 1 connector. With respect to the SA1-0400-FUSION (PCIe x 4 connector), four PE lanes would be required, which are provided by a CompactPCI® Serial fat pipe slot, but may be available in some cases also from an ordinary peripheral slot. Both carrier board options, the SA1-0100 and SA1-0400, allow for up to 148mm x 83.75mm PCIe card dimensions.
The maximum performance can be achieved with the SA1-0800-FUSION, due to the PCIe x8 on-board connector. Since both backplane connectors P1/P2 are required in order to pass over eight PE lanes from a CompactPCI® Serial fat pipe slot, the maximum length of a PCIe card would be limited by the position of P2 to 139mm.
The SA1-FUSION is provided with a PCIe clock buffer for optimum signal integrity.
