OSS-PCIE-HIB25-x8 and OSS 2slot backplane FAQ
Product: OSS-Kit-Exp-8000-2m (PCIe x8 Gen 2 Expansion kit)
HIB25 is re-driver based.
- Will the two old OSS-PCIE-HIB25-x8 cards (target ad host card) work OK with the OSS 2slot backplane?
Answer: The LEDs are looking for a signal. If a signal is present, the LED will turn on. Yes
- Should the CBL and EDGE LEDs be ON when there's a linked between target and host?
Answer: If this is on the target side. This means that the motherboard side is looking for a device, so a signal is present. Since there is no response back from an un-populated slot, there is no signal to drive to the card edge.
- What if it is only CBL that is ON and EDGE is OFF? What does it mean? What is the fix?
