Abstract : A cylindrical high speed parallel backplane for electrically inter-connecting a plurality of printed circuit boards in a data processing system. A plurality of cylindrical plate conductor structures are arranged parallel to one another. A plurality of circuit board connectors are disposed radially about the perimeter. of the plate conductor structures to electrically connect the printed circuit board to the plate conductors structures. This cylindrical design of the backplane provides a short signal path length between the printed circuit boards connected to the backplane thereby providing for broad bandwidth capability.
