Abstract

The idea of "Height-Adjustable PCI I/O in Chassis" is used to save space while using a converter (or a riser) to support legacy PCI on a PCI-E slot, and this idea also benefits the interior layout design of the chassis.

Height-Adjustable PCI I/O in Chassis

Along with new PCI I/O technology evolution (PCI Express) in IT industry, there is still existing demand with legacy PCI supports in a small percentage of user application environment but the new generation of core logic development usually give up the legacy PCI supports to save platform cost for the mainstream customers, and to use a converter (or riser) for those customers who need legacy PCI support. That means chassis needs to reserve a dedicated PCI I/O for legacy PCI.

To reserve a dedicated PCI I/O is really space-consuming. An idea "Height-Adjustable PCI I/O in Chassis" is able to save space while using a converter (or a riser) to support legacy PCI. The idea also benefits chassis' interior layout design.

The detailed concept is shown in the following images.
