Abstract

During the development of the hot plug portion of the Amazonas thin node, it became necessary to create a more free flowing air flowing air path between PCI cards. While allowing for air flow it also was necessary to allow for rather large connectors to be seated and unseated at will while not disturbing adjacent cards. These cards also need to be swapped while node is installed and fully powered. EMC was contained at a card to card level at this point.
