Custom Backplanes

Customization is the standard at Elma. Our extensive offering of modular standard products enables us to leverage existing solutions and proven design concepts to meet any custom application.

Backplanes Product Type

The backplane is quite literally the backbone of a successfully performing system. Excellent signal integrity design is critical to platform reliability. Building on decades of backplane manufacturing experience, Elma engineers are innovation leaders in high-speed signal processing design, developing some of the most sophisticated backplanes in the industry.

Backplane designs for the highest level of signal integrity
At speeds up to 100 Gbase-KR4, every feature of backplane design can influence signal integrity (SI) – every trace, layer separation, turn bend, via, via transition, etc. Elma’s signal integrity analysis and simulations consider every element in the channel to ensure optimal performance. Elma uses precision probe cards for complete channel characterization between all points on the backplane.

Today’s critical high-speed systems require nothing less than reliable, repeatable solutions - every time, which is why our customers rely on us for their backplane solutions.

Custom Backplane Examples
