Those 19" racks look beautiful $$$, I like the vivid red Rose
About two years ago I go rid of a single and a double size Eurocard
19" rack that was sitting in my garage for years. Moral of the story
if you get rid of something you will be sorry unless it's a dead
Eric, have you checked out Ten-Tec out, it might be worth sending a email
to them, they make all sorts of enclosures including reasonably priced

- Unfortunately not at the moment, I?ll see what I can do. To get
started on daughter card design, the important thing in my description
below is that the real estate we have to use is going to be 2? by 4
Inches, with the 96 pin connector on one 4 inch side (Standard EuroCard
width and about ¼ the depth) any connectors to the real world on the
other 4 inch side which protrude through the front panel. Maximum height
of components on the board must be < .75 inches per original
suggestion. I estimate raw costs on manufacturing a daughter board will
be about 16 ? 20 bux depending on quantity.
- I am still googling enclosures so the height of the backplane is
still in question. I am trying for Phil?s 4 board selection. Also
motherboard stacking is still in question, but will probably come out the
bottom or the top of the enclosure. That might be left on the MB in final
design, but inaccessible from this particular enclosure.
- If an enclosure with vertical as well as horizontal slides is chosen,
any additional length in the enclosure (i.e. 4 inches in a standard
eurocard enclosure) would have vertically mounted boards to hold such
larger components as power regulators.
- I?ll try to get a concept drawing.
- I have found a Rose+Bopla ?Build a Box? which fits our approximate
requirements, but I am still searching. Also I have not found a
distributor for these enclosures. Anything OEM tends to be expensive, in
Vero Electronics might make something suitable:
They've been in the Eurocard business for years.
