- Two PMC module slots
- Front or rear access I/O
- Plug-and-play carrier configuration and interrupt support
This board provides an easy and low cost solution that enables use of a PMC mezzanine I/O module in a standard 6U CompactPCI computer system. The carrier card acts simply as an adapter to route PCI bus signals to and from the PMC module through the CompactPCI card slot edge connector. All Acromag PMC modules and those from other vendors are supported.
This board uses a PLX Technology PCI6540 transparent PCI/PCI bridge for data transactions from the PCI bus (system host) to two PMC sites. The bridge device provides a 32 or 64-bit PCI interface with 33 or 66MHz bus frequencies.
A heat frame enables conduction cooling in applications where ambient or forced air can’t provide adequate cooling. This unit is ideal for airborne systems, deployment in battleground equipment, and other situations with advanced thermal management requirements.
Field I/O signals are routed through the carrier card’s rear J3 and J5 connectors
An air-cooled rear transition board, Acromag Model TRANS-C4620, maps the field I/O on the PMC module to the rear of the CompactPCI system.
