TEWS Technologies launches hot swap PMC carrier for AMC
HALSTENBEK, Germany, 2 Feb. 2009 TEWS Technologies today announced the TAMC260, a double-width full-size PMC carrier for AMC form factors that supports one single-width PMC module.
The TAMC260 is a solution to upgrade legacy PMC I/O solutions to the high performance AMC form factor. PMC modules provide modular cost effective I/O solutions for applications in process control, medical systems, aerospace and defense, telecommunications, and traffic control.
The 32-bit PCI accesses are supported on the PCI bus at 33 MHz and 66 MHz. The PLX8112 PCIe-to-PCI bridge provides the real connection between the primary PCIe link and the secondary PMC slot. It controls all PCI accesses and sets the frequency for the PMC access.
The TAMC260 supports front panel I/O, and a 68 pin SCSI-V type connector provides access to the PMC P14 back I/O lines. In compliance with specification AMC.0, the TAMC260 provides an IPMI compliant Module Management Controller (MMC) with temperature monitoring and hot-swap support.
The new TEWS' modules have a 5-year warranty. Software support is available for major operating systems such as Windows, Linux, VxWorks, and QNX
