Acromag, Inc. releases their ACPS3310 3U CompactPCI Serial mezzanine module carrier card for embedded measurement and control applications. The board has two AcroPack module slots to accommodate a wide variety of I/O signal processing tasks. AcroPacks are a family of more than 25 enhanced mini PCIe modules that perform analog I/O, digital I/O, serial communication, FPGA computing and other functions. Field I/O signals are securely routed through the carrier board from 68-pin front panel connectors to the AcroPack I/O modules eliminating loose internal cabling. A PCI Express link interfaces the I/O modules to the bus backplane. CompactPCI Serial is a modern high-performance modular embedded computing standard that is very fast, versatile and economical. It is ideal for defense, aerospace, transportation, oil/gas, scientific, test/measurement, and manufacturing applications.
“With our latest carrier, more than twenty-five rugged AcroPack I/O modules are now available to developers of CompactPCI Serial computer systems," explains Russ Nieves, Acromag’s Vice President of Sales. “Integrators can easily tailor an exact solution for their I/O requirements with a mix of AcroPacks. This is yet another example of Acromag making it easy and affordable for customers to meet their demanding I/O requirements with COTS-based AcroPack modules.”
CompactPCI Serial is a PICMG® open standard with proven Eurocard mechanics supported by a wide variety of vendors providing CPUs, racks, graphics, storage, communication, and other peripherals. The ACPS3310 AcroPack carrier adds a wealth of rugged, I/O signal processing solutions to the CPCI-S bus ecosystem. AcroPack modules are available for A/D, D/A, discrete level monitoring/control, counter/timer, RS232/422/485, GbE, CAN bus, avionics, and FPGA computing tasks. Software tools support Linux®, Windows®, and VxWorks® operating systems.
