3U VPX carrier cards for interfacing PMC and XMC cards to VPX embedded computing systems introduced by Acromag
WIXOM, Mich., 31 March 2011. Acromag Inc. in Wixom, Mich., is introducing the VPX4810 3U VPX carrier cards for interfacing PCI Mezzanine Cards (PMCs) or Express Mezzanine Cards (XMCs) to VPX embedded computing systems in high-performance military, industrial, scientific research, and telephony applications that require high-speed I/O. The carrier cards are available in air-cooled versions that operate in temperatures from 0 to 70 degrees Celsius, or in conduction-cooled and REDI models.
The PMC/XMC site uses 64-bit, 66/133 MHz PLX technology with a PCI Express to PCI-X bridge for data transfer rates as fast as 1 gigabyte per second. Users can select a fat pipe (x4) or double-fat pipe (x8) PCI Express interface by adjusting a jumper.
