PicMG Board

Started by Brett Foster November 20, 2004
I have a PICMG board (ISA+PCI) that is currently strapped to a power 
supply using duct tape and a protoboard with an ISA slot (giving it power).

Can I plug this card in to a traditional ISA slot to get power inside 
another computer? I don't want them to communicate over ISA -- that 
would be impossible. I just want power, and a stable platform to house 
the PICMG card.

Is this possible?

Will it require certain signals are cut off so that they won't interfere 
with each other. (I suppose I could do this using a paint over trick, or 
worse cut the physical trace.) Which signals would I need to do this to?

Yes... Yes it is. Some tape a few screws and it booted up perfectly. :) Yay for duoputer! Brett
