Opening up a new world of graphics-based applications, PICMG has added the Type 6 pin-out
to the COM.0 standard.
With each design, a conditional routing can be made on the PCB to determine the best package and pin-out
. Rules allow designers to define such parameters as leaving corner pins unused, keeping differential pairs together, how to distribute power and ground, how to handle data and address busses, etc.
The new VMEbus Switched Serial Standard (VXS) or VITA41 specification defines the pin-out
and backplane requirements for an evolutionary path to switched fabric systems for legacy VMEbus installations.
Image sensors have different pin-outs
, with different speeds and different controls: Sony's SLVS-EC sensor interface, LVDS, and MIPI CSI-2 are three examples.
Available in industry-compatible pin-outs
, the transceivers are packaged in a wide-body 16-pin SOIC package with 8mm of creepage and clearance and operate over the -40-degree Celsius to +125-degree Celsius temperature range.
Available in 16, 32, and 48 port configurations, NodeGrid T48S detects and reconfigures serial device pin-outs
on-the-fly, eliminating the need for expensive dongles and cumbersome adapters.
Other tools allow optimizing package pin-outs
by considering the system from the die clear to the board, allowing much simplified breakout and routing.
The flexibility of the VPX board architecture (VITA 46), although a strength of the high-speed replacement for the venerable VME bus, also led to tremendous variation between different VPX module signal types and proprietary pin-outs
. As a result, it became apparent, as system designers began to implement new system designs in the early days of the adoption of VPX, that a high percentage of these new VPX applications required custom backplane connectivity for interoperability between specific modules.
* The cable can be soldered to the dongle PCB, allowing flexible pin-outs
For instance, a reprogrammable FPGA's power and ground pin-outs
may change to comply with different power and voltage requirements on a PCB.
HP would not say if it is using the new Opteron HE or Opteron EE low-power variants of the chip in the blades, but the odds favor it, particularly since the regular Opteron chips and the HE and EE variants have the same pin-outs
as the regular (and hotter) Opterons.
