Because backplanes as a class are fairly expensive to fabricate, and time-consuming to redesign, they generally get special scrutiny prior to release to the PCB fabricator. Can the copper foil carry the supply and return currents? Does the backplane have a balanced layer stackup? Can anything be done to improve the signal flow? Is the placement of every single connector exact? Manifold are the questions to ask oneself to ensure a quality design.
Backplane connectors are press-fit or soldered. Backplane signals are sometimes terminated for high-speed signal routing. Multilayer backplanes provide signal distribution and power distribution to multiple daughterboards.
There are several common standards, CompactPCI, VME, among others. If you've ever used a telephone, you have probably used one or two backplanes designed by us. We're at your service to design yours.
