Abstract

Air Flow EMC Blank Filler Cassette When using the blind swap cassette in a system it was necessary to create a filler or blank for when no card was available in a particular slot. This blank needed to address thermal, EMC, and cost requirements. The blank needed to be very inexpensive but still provide the significant EMC and thermal requirements. The structural support necessary to provide stabilized plug of PCI cards and components. This supports cassetted components on a 1" pitch but could be size up or down to accommodate new pitch requirements. 1 2
