Abstract

Needed to provide a means of inserting and extracting a PCI card which occupies two slots. This needs to be accomplished without moving the planer or enclosure and not to interfere with adjacent cards. We needed to provide this for the card to support hot swap.

Tandem Width Cassette

    Needed to provide a means of inserting and extracting a PCI card which occupies two slots. This needs to be accomplished without moving the planer or enclosure and not to interfere with adjacent cards. We needed to provide this for the card to support hot swap.

The tandem approach can support single cards which require large heatsinks and double cards with a single connection.

Our design allows for guidance, emc containment, thermal path and retention for this application.
