ERNI has introduced its new line of ERmet 2mm HM AB connector module, which supports the requirements of the PICMG 2.16 CompactPCI Packet Switching Backplane (CompactPCI/PSB) specification.

The PICMG 2.16 specification describes a standardized way to implement an Ethernet switch fabric in a standard backplane using standard backplane connector pinouts. The CompactPCI/PSB specifies the shielded, 2mm-pitch, five-row HM connectors at the P3/J3 location of Node slots and P3/J3 and P5/J5 as location of Fabric slots as defined by IEC 61076-4-1001.

The standard specifies AB connector modules on the front and rear side of the Fabric (P3/J3 and P5/J5) and Node Slots (P3/J3).

The company AB shrouds with 19 positions, shielded female AB connectors with 19 positions, and male AB versions with 19 positions and 16mm feed-thru-tails according to PICMG 2.16. The devices are also offered with the corresponding keying for standard and extended fabric. The Standard Fabric keying uses the P4/J4 connector with a Blue/Lilac (RAL 4005) key in the connector cavity and the Extended Fabric keying uses the P5/J5 connector and a Ocher Yellow (RAL 1024) key.
