PCI Telecom Mezzanine/Carrier Card Specification
The PCI Telecom Mezzanine Card (PTMC) is based on the four connector standard PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC). The PTMC provides all of the traditional PMC 32-bit PCI signals on the Pn1 and Pn2 connectors and specifies the use of industry standard telecom interfaces on Pn3 and Pn4. In addition, interoperability with 64-bit PCI is provided as a dedicated configuration type. PTMC leverages the success, form factor, and functionality of the PMC series of peripheral mezzanine cards, but is not a replacement for PMC. It will coexist with PMC and support four popular industry standard telecom bus interfaces. PTMC brings new definition and flexibility to the world of slim modular mezzanine cards for PCI, CompactPCI, and VME.
