What are the benefits of “no-active electronic” backplane and why?

March 10, 2020 |  Kate Pinckney

The Backplane Magnetic Interconnect (BMI) is Bedrock’s passive backplane, which provides mechanical support and electrical connection for the controller, SPM, and SIO modules. Any combination of SIO modules can be installed in slots 1 through 5, 10, or 20 (depending on the model). The orientation of the SIO modules does not matter and modules can be flipped to make wiring easier. However, the slots/orientation for the controllers and power modules are fixed.
