3U VPX carrier cards to interface PMC XMC modules to VPX systems introduced by Acromag
WIXOM, Mich., 13 Aug. 2014. Acromag in Wixom, Mich., is introducing the VPX4810 and VPX4812 3U VPX carrier cards to interface PCI mezzanine card (PMC) or express mezzanine card (XMC) modules to VPX computer systems.
These embedded computing carriers are for high-performance military, industrial, defense, scientific research, and telephony systems requiring high-speed I/O.
These carrier cards route power and interface bus signals to a plug-in mezzanine module through the VPX card slot connector. An eight-lane PCI Express bus Gen 2 interface enables rapid data throughput.
By inserting PMC/XMC industrial I/O and configurable FPGA modules from Acromag or other vendors on the carrier, developers can capitalize on hundreds of available function modules in a VPX platform. Cards are available in air- and conduction-cooled versions.
The VPX4810 and VPX4812 carrier cards conform to VPX VITA 46.0, 46.4 and 46.9 specifications and optionally VITA 48 for ruggedized enhanced design implementation (REDI). Front and rear-panel I/O access can be accommodated; however, the front I/O option is only available on air-cooled models.
Both models are compatible with several VITA 65 OpenVPX module/slot profiles. The VPX4810 has 64 I/O lines (P14, VITA 46.9) are supported via the P2 VPX connector. The VPX4812 I/O is supported via the P16 XMC connector.
