English to German translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Computers: Hardware
English term or phrase:line card
The text in question describes the components of a computer system, and the context is as follows:
...the platform consists of blades and line cards connected by a switch fabric...
I'm not sure how to translate "line cards" (Leitungskarten? Leiterkarten? Platinen?), and ordinarily I would leave these terms in English, but the client like to have everything "eingedeutscht". I'd be grateful for any suggestions.
Explanation: There seems to be no german translation for this card. So you have to leave it in english. Here's an explanation what a line card is (it's not as simple as 'Leiterkarte' or something like that):
An electronics board that has multiple line interfaces and the electronics to drive communications across many customers’ connections. Line cards may drive from about 8 to as many as 72 circuits.
