Dang! We think the same things at the same time and our e-mails pass! I LOVE
and have been thinking about all the "Front Panel" stuff we could do. It
even 'translates' to any other enclosure a user would want if we stick with
the 5.25 inch standard opening mounted on a cheap drive bracket! Think of
it! LCD display etc! (smile) The PC case stuff is just to universal and good
to pass up for the project! Especially since we decided to use a power
supply. The power supply in the Aria is pretty darn quiet and good!

WE can put the 100 watt PA in the hole left by the ATX connector stack

I agree, just too many objectors to the PCI stuff and for pretty good
reasons. Your idea for a backplane we design which nuzzles up to a PC 4+
slot L-bracket is great! I'm also ready to dump the 96 pins in favor of .1
in some squat down style and go twisted pair for HS.

I have other comments on this train of thought. If anything we need a high
speed and low speed buss on this projects, and gotta figure a way to
accomplish that.

All we need for that is a daughter board, as I was intending to add. That may be used for things like prototyping, adding RF connectors, etc. leaving the main board just for digital stuff connected directly to the FPGA.
