Re: [N8VEM-S100:2191] Re: Interest, Discussion and R&D on a 18 Slot S100 Backplane & ATX PSU board.

Hi Jack,
I checked out the Phoenix web site but didn't find the S-100 type connectors. I started with card edge connectors & then did various searches but came up empty. Do you happen to have a Phoenix part number handy so I could check them out?

When you're pricing connectors, be sure to check out Phoenix Enterprises - http://www.phoenixent.com/ . I use their S100 connectors and also their double-wipe DIP sockets. I think machined-pin sockets are way over-rated for applications where high numbers of insertion cycles are not anticipated when compared to _quality_ double-wipe sockets like those from Phoenix.

Also, I'm not sure what thickness material Ant is using for his backplane, but the N8VEM backplanes are twice the thickness of the component cards to provide rigidity and reliability. This needs to be taken in consideration when ordering connectors, since you'll need a slightly longer tail to ensure full penetration of the board.
