Standards for modular electronics

CERN is a member of PICMG, PCI-SIG and VISA. As such we have access to the standards issued by these bodies. Most of the standards are kept in the CERN library. Have a look at this website for an overview of what is available in the library.
Below is a list of standards that I have compiled a while ago. It may provide you with some complementary information.

Board ID distribution

In case you are desiging a PCI, xTCA, USB or VME64x board and need a unique ID please follow this link.

PCIMG documents:

CERN is a member of the PICMG organisation and has received paper copies of all of their current standards. In addition we have the most popular standards also as PDFs. These paper copies are kept in the CERN library and can be borrowed by anybody but have to remain at CERN.

PDF files

The PDFs are available via CDS. Please note that all PDF files are electronically signed. The PCIMG copyright has to be respected. Therefore you need a CERN (NICE) user account in order to see them. Do not publish copies of the files on the Web.
