We think that Jon’s question is really interesting and we guess that others than Jon would like to know our answer. Click on read more to see it:
You are totally right. If you use the card in a chassis, it doesn’t change much. However please note the following :
1) our PCI digitizers are also used within OEM systems together with a proprietary PC board and in this case the size and the power consumption are usually very important factors as they have to design our digitizer into small ( sometime portable) systems. Also you need to know that over the time we have increased the processing capability of the PCIe digitizers while they consume less power.
2) There are 2 different types of PCI chassis. 1 of them is shorter and our future 2013 digitizer will fit in the shorter chassis version.
Regarding the cooling system, we take a great attention while designing our cards to this factor. Let us know if you would like to learn more about that. Best regards. Myriam
