Two PMC module slots. Front or rear access I/O. Plug-and-play carrier configuration and interrupt support.
This board provides an easy and low cost solution that enables use of a PMC mezzanine I/O module in a standard 6U CompactPCI computer system. The carrier card acts simply as an adapter to route PCI bus signals to and from the PMC module through the CompactPCI card slot edge connector. All Acromag PMC modules and those from other vendors are supported.
This board uses a PLX Technology PCI6540 transparent PCI/PCI bridge for data transactions from the PCI bus (system host) to two PMC sites. The bridge device provides a 32 or 64-bit PCI interface with 33 or 66MHz bus frequencies.
Front and rear-panel access to field I/O signals are accommodated. The carrier card’s front panel cut-out provides access to a PMC module’s front I/O connector. Alternatively, all I/O signals can be routed through the carrier card’s rear J3 and J5 connectors.
An air-cooled rear transition board, Acromag Model TRANS-C4620, maps the field I/O on the PMC module to the rear of the CompactPCI system.
