Carrier Cards Interface XMC Mezzanine Modules to PCI Express Bus

June 6, 2013
The APCe8675 card routes power and PCIe bus signals to an XMC mezzanine module for high-performance signal processing in a desktop computer or laboratory prototype system.

The card allows a PC to communicate with an XMC mezzanine module over a PCI Express (PCIe) bus. System developers can insert the company's FPGA modules or other XMC modules on the carrier card to perform a variety of signal processing functions. The carrier's PCIe x8 interface supports up to eight serial lanes for rapid data transfer between the plug-in XMC module and the host computer. The carrier is suggested for high-performance industrial and scientific research computing systems, and is also useful to test advanced systems for defense and aerospace applications that will be deployed later on rugged embedded computer platforms such as VME, VPX, or CompactPCI. Rear I/O connectors enable high-speed serial interfaces between neighboring carrier boards using XAUI or Aurora protocols. These ports simplify board-to-board connections with twinax or internal SCSI-3 cables to left and right adjacent carrier cards. An integrated fan provides a constant airflow across the module.
