Project Description


3U VPX card
Holds one PMC/XMC module
PCIe bus 8-lane Gen 1 or 2 interface
Air-cooled, conduction-cooled, REDI versions

These 3U mezzanine carrier cards provide a simple and cost-effective solution for interfacing a PMC or XMC module to a VPX computer system. The carrier card routes power and bus signals to a plug-in mezzanine module through the VPX card slot connector. Industrial I/O and configurable FPGA modules from Acromag or other vendors are supported.

Main Features:

Half-length PCI card
3U VPX carrier board delivers 25W of power to one PMC/XMC site
PMC/XMC site uses 64-bit, 66/133MHz PLX technology with a PCIe to PCI-X bridge
PCIe bus 8-lane Gen 1 or 2 interface
Supports standard PMC/XMC modules (IEEE 1386.1)
Conforms to VPX VITA 46.0, 46.4 and 46.9 specifications and optionally VITA 48
Supports front or rear panel PMC/XMC I/O
Supports 64 I/O lines (P14, VITA 46.9) via the P2 VPX connector
3.3V PCI-X signaling PMC site
+12V and –12V provided to PMC/XMC site
Monitors FRU information and module temperature
