IEEE 1101.2 92nd Edition, December 6, 2001
Standard for Mechanical Core Specifications for Conduction-Cooled Eurocards
Includes all amendments and changes through Reaffirmation Notice , January 31, 2008
(This foreword is not a part of IEEE Std 1101.2-1992, IEEE Standard for Mechanical Core Specifications for Conduction-Cooled Eurocards.)
This document describes mechanical characteristics for conduction-cooled versions of Eurocard-based circuit card assemblies. It is intended that this specification will be applicable to, but not limited to, the VMEbus standard, an internal interconnect (backplane) bus intended for connecting processing elements to their immediate fundamental resources.
This standard is intended to be a companion standard to other standards, which include IEEE Std 1101.1-1991, Mechanical Core Specifications for Microcomputers Using IEC 603-2 Connectors; IEEE Std 1014-1987, IEEE Standard for a Versatile Backplane Bus: VMEbus; and MIL-C-55302/131 and MIL-C-55302/132, connector specifications for module and backplane.
Other uses for the standard are in no way prohibited.
This standard defines the mechanical requirements for Eurocard-based conduction-cooled circuit card assemblies (CCAs).
