VPX boards route power and bus signals to a plug-in XMC or PMC mezzanine module with an 8-lane PCIe interface to enable a wide variety of I/O processing and FPGA computing options. Acromag's OpenVPX™ carrier card selection provide a simple and cost-effective solution for interfacing a PMC or XMC module to a VPX computer system. These 3U and 6U carrier cards feature a high-speed PCI Express interface making them ideal for high-performance industrial, defense, scientific research, and telephony systems.
These 3U mezzanine carrier cards provide a simple and cost-effective solution for interfacing a PMC or XMC module to a VPX computer system. The carrier card routes power and bus signals to a plug-in mezzanine module through the VPX card slot connector.
VPX4812A / VPX4814A: VPX Carrier Cards for XMC Modules
Air-cooled, conduction-cooled and REDI versions
3U Single XMC slot
PCIe x8 Gen 2 interface
The VPX4812A can be used as a VPX switch card allowing a host CPU to communicate with up to 3 downstream cards in addition to the XMC card. Each VPX port can be configured to be x4 or x8.
The VPX4814A is a peripheral XMC carrier board designed to be used in a system that uses a VPX AcroExpress® CPU.
VPX4821A: VPX Carrier Cards for XMC or PMC Modules
Air-cooled and conduction-cooled versions
6U dual PMC/XMC slots
PCIe bus 16-lane Gen 1 or 2 interface switch on data plane
The VPX4821A carrier card provides a simple and cost-effective solution for interfacing a PMC or XMC module to a VPX computer system.
Connect to the OpenVPX™ via Data plane for a direct PCIe connection over the VPX backplane. This allows host processors access to a high-performance, low latency interconnect to the PMC and XMC modules on the carrier card.
