Re: [Xylo-SDR] Aria Case... DIN41612 Backplane...

Maybe I missed it but has anybody posted a link to the box that is being talked about?

Looking good, I think we are on track! The Aria case allows for a lot of
freedom and provides enough room for expansion etc. We have plenty of
options with that case.

Eric, the newer ATX v2.0 power supply standard is using a 24 pin
connector. Older pre-v2.0 ATX PS use a 20 pin connector, but it can be
plugged into the 24 pin, flush up on one side. Providing a 24 pin PS
connector would give us backward compatibility for all ATX PS's.

Another suggestion regarding the boards, it would be best to construct
analog input circuits and certain RF modules as Daughterboards, in such
a way that they can be 100% shielded and plugged into IDC connectors on
the boards with the bus and digital interface etc.

That would make those boards 'thicker' than any digital only board, so
we need wider spacing of the backplane connectors.

There's a lot of good inputs and the reflector is getting very busy. The
positive thing is that we are looking at all avenues before we are
locking ourselves in. That way the $$ will also be kept at an acceptable

Good work from all, keep it coming! 73, Helmut VK4STR
