SBC - Backplane installation
Please help out a carputer newbie. I am experienced with car audio installation and PC Hardware but have never worked with this type of hardware. I am about to acquire a SBC that connects to a PICMG slot. Here is what I found http://www.arisecomputer.com/bp/PCIMG.asp
I am pretty sure this will work. I will need to build a case to house it but I am not sure about the power connection. Anyone else ever use something like this?
Here is an email I sent to the company:
I had a question about the backplanes. What does the power terminal block do? Does it allow it to be connected to 12V? What kind of power supply do these use?
Thanks for your help.
It's a power output connector. Yes, it can be connected to +-5V and +-12V.
Does this mean I can run a 12V wire from my battery to this computer? Do I need a seperate Power Supply?
Please clear up my confusion.
