- All ADVANCETECH VME backplanes are designed to maximize performance, minimize noise, and to give the customer the most reliable, cost-effective product possible. To achieve this we use 8-layer construction, stripline design, decoupling capacitors at every slot, inboard terminators, heavy power and ground planes, transient analysis simulation programs, and years of experience designing, building, and using backplanes.
- Three 2 oz. copper ground layers are used to fully shield the backplane to minimize RFI/EMI emission/susceptibility, to minimize crosstalk, and to maximize power. The outer ground layers serve to prevent signals or VCC from being exposed where they could be shorted or damaged. Two 2 oz. copper VCC layers are used to maximize power distribution and to act as virtual ground planes for the signals in order to minimize noise and crosstalk.
