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.
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.
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.
