I've only ever seen "backplane," which is an industry-standard term correctly used. Gene sees an existing definition for "backpan" which clashes.

Is there a difference between the backplane that servers or blades connect to and the backplane that cards within a server/blade connect to? Does the engineer dream of making a product of and trademarking "backpan"? If not, I say stick with "backplane."
