English term or phrase: backplane
Definition from Javvin Technologies, Inc.:
Backplane is the physical interface module in many network devices such as a route or a switch that connects between an interface processor or card and the data buses and the power distribution buses inside a chassis.

Example sentence(s):
  • Backplanes are normally used in preference to cables because of their greater reliability. In a cabled system, the cables need to be flexed every time that a card is added to or removed from the system; and this flexing eventually causes mechanical failures. A backplane does not suffer from this problem, so its service life is limited only by the longevity of its connectors. Wikipedia
  • If an FC-AL backplane filler panel is installed, remove the three Phillips screws securing the filler panel to the backplane and remove the filler panel from the system. Sun Microsystems, Inc.
  • If you are using a standard AT power supply and want 3.3V on the backplane, you can specify the on-backplane 3.3V power supply option. embedded-pc.microbus.com
