The CPS3101 is a 3U CompactPCI® Serial carrier board that provides support for one 2.5" SATA HDD or SSD (transfer rates up to 6Gb/s are supported). In addition, the CPS3101 is equipped with an onboard USB 3.0 connector enabling the connection to system-internal USB devices.
To ensure maximum signal integrity, redriver components are used for the SATA and USB interfaces.
The complete board design is optimized for best shock and vibration resistance. Moreover, it offers customers a service-friendly implementation. Status information of the carrier board and the drive assembled are shown via four LEDs on the front panel. If a drive fails, the complete carrier board can be hot swapped during system operation.
