Abstract

Top Edge Connector Cabling Cassette While developing the Bonnie and Clyde enclosure it became necessary to adapt to PCI type cards which would require internal cabling from adjacent cards while in the box. This need to be accomplished without removing the lid or slide the enclosure on rails. To solve this we developed a "hybrid" type of cassette which would allow a CE to plug a card then attach a cable to its top edge connector and then add the adjacent card and so on up to however many were necessary to complete

Top Edge Connector / Cabling Cassette

    While developing the Bonnie and Clyde enclosure it became necessary to adapt to PCI type cards which would require internal cabling from adjacent cards while in the box. This need to be accomplished without removing the lid
or slide the enclosure on rails.

To solve this we developed a "hybrid" type of cassette which would allow a CE to plug a card then attach a cable to its top edge connector and then add the adjacent card and so on up to however many were necessary to complete
the task or build up of the system.
