ISA96 Bus 7/Z
ISA96 Bus 10
For the Bus systems ISA96 and AT96, various backplanes are available. They vary in their number of slots, mounting technique, and design.
Power is supplied via 6.3mm flat connectors. The backplanes are generally manufactured using the press-fit technique.
In order to grant optimum signal integrity with minimum cross-talk and minimum reflections, the boards are manufactured in a six-layer multi-layer technique.
Each signal row of the 96pin DIN-connector resides on a separate layer. These layers are shielded by GND- or VCC-planes. Also, the signals on each layer are separated as far as possible by ground traces.
The GND- or VCC-planes also give optimal power-supply for all slots.
