The SP1-BANJO is a peripheral slot card for
CompactPCI® Serial systems according to PICMG® CPCI-S.0.
Its front panel situated
ExpressCard™ slot allows flexible system
expansion by an ExpressCard™ I/O or storage module. The
push-push mechanics accommodate either an
ExpressCard/54 (54mm x 75mm) or an
ExpressCard/34 (34mm x 75mm). ExpressCard™
technology allows for installing and
removing modules on the fly, without prior
system shutdown. The SP1-BANJO
is suitable for
both types, PCI Express® and USB based ExpressCards.
In addition, the SP1-BANJO is equipped with an
Micro SATA connector, for attachment of an
on-board 1.8-inch SATA SSD (Solid State Drive).
SSDs offer less power consumption, superior
speed, and an improved operation temperature
range, compared to hard disk drives.
Furthermore, the SP1-BANJO is provided with a
front panel Gigabit Ethernet jack. Usage of this
connector requires a CompactPCI® Serial system slot controller
with Ethernet support, via the backplane
connector P6 (optional).
