A. DB37F I/O connectors (see OP5707XG Pin Assignments for more details). The figure in OP5707XG IO Configuration illustrates the links between the mezzanines and the DB37 I/O connectors

B. Power reset and +5/+12 V power source connector (for tests)


C. Ground screw. The OP5707XG may be subjected to EMI when it is installed in proximity to other devices. Make sure to connect the OP5707XG ground to the rack to prevent any EMI related damage to the simulator (see Figure in OP5707XG Connecting Monitoring Devices)

D. Power connector and power On/Off switch.

E. Standard computer connectors (left to right): VGA connector for monitor, USB ports for mouse and keyboard, network ports (see Figure in OP5700 Installation and Configuration).

F. Low-profile PCIe slots3. These slots give access to five of the six PCIe slots. The sixth slot is reserved for the internal connection of the Virtex7 FPGA board.

G. Serial port RS-232.

Refer to the system Description document received with your simulator for a more detailed description of the configuration.


  • OP5707XG-4 configuration only uses one CPU, and can only manage five PCIe slots, leaving 4 slots available for third-party I/O or communication boards.
  • High-profile PCIe boards or PCI boards must be installed in the front bays of the chassis, and connected to the motherboard using riser boards. Since each riser uses one PCIe slot of the motherboard, the number of slots available at the back of the chassis is reduced. Each riser board can connect two PCI cards.
