    MX480 FPC Terminology

    Regardless of whether you are holding an FPC vertically or horizontally, this document uses the same terms for all four edges of the FPC (see Figure 1):

    • Faceplate—Edge of the FPC that has slots into which you insert the PICs
    • Connector edge—Edge opposite the faceplate; this edge has the connectors that attach to the midplane
    • Top edge—Edge at the top of the FPC when it is vertical
    • Bottom edge—Edge at the bottom of the FPC when it is vertical
