The XChange1002 is a versatile 6U CompactPCI dual PMC carrier card with a PICMG 2.16 Gigabit Ethernet backplane interface. The XChange1002 supports 100 MHz PCI-X on both the CompactPCI and local bus interfaces (the XChange1002 uses a transparent bridge, which allows it to operate as a peripheral carrier card in a CompactPCI environment).
PICMG 2.1 Hot Swap support allows the XChange1002 to be installed into a live system without disrupting CompactPCI bus activity. In addition, the system management bus support allows the card to be powered down and reset remotely through the PICMG 2.9 IPMI interface. The IPMI interface also allows for the monitoring of voltage and temperature levels on the cards attached to the two PrPMC slots.
