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. Industrial I/O and configurable FPGA modules from Acromag or other vendors are supported.

Compatible VITA 65 module / slot profiles:
MOD3-PER-1F-16.3.2-2 / SLT3-PER-1F-14.3.2
MOD3-PAY-1D-16.2.6-11 / SLT3-PAY-1D-14.2.6

These carriers are ideal for high-performance industrial, defense, scientific research, and telephony systems requiring high-speed I/O expansion. The VPX4810-LF is available in three versions: air-cooled, conduction-cooled and a Ruggedized Enhanced Design Implementation (REDI VITA 48).
