PCIe Lane Distribution
While helping a client this week, our engineers uncovered a great feature of the PICMG 1.3 backplane featured in the DuroPC RAC258 4U iSeries Industrial Computer. This backplane features PCIe Lane Distribution configured to allow all 7 PCIe x1 slots to operate simultaneously.
This feature is not available on all boards all the time, as they are often prioritized by available bandwidth. If you need to run several PCIe x1 device cards, the RAC258 may be the system for you.
