CompactPCI® Serial  ExpressCard™ Adapter & SATA SSD Carrier Board

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).
