GPS + High-Speed Serial I/O PMC Adapter
(Not recommended for new designs)

PDF print version of this specification :  A4 or Letter

The GPS + High-Speed Serial I/O PMC (PCI Mezzanine Card) Adapter provides an integrated GPS (Global Positioning System) receiver plus four channels of high-speed (>10 Mbps) serial I/O and one channel of UART (Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter) (<1 Mbps) serial I/O. An external DGPS (Differential GPS) input is provided. The adapter is available in both conduction-cooled (CC) and air-cooled versions : ruggedised, industrial and commercial.

Architecture

The GPS + High-Speed Serial I/O PMC Adapter uses the Motorola MPC860 PowerQUICC Integrated PowerPC Microprocessor as a communication controller.

Features

This board offers full GPS functionality to be integrated with the host in addition to an extra four channels of high-speed serial I/O and one channel of UART-compatible serial I/O.

Conduction-Cooling

The conduction-cooled GPS + High-Speed Serial I/O PMC Adapter conforms to the CCPMC (Conduction-Cooled PCI Mezzanine Card) Standard, namely ANSI/VITA 20-2001.

Applications

  • Distributed applications in harsh environments
  • Avionics
  • Mission-critical applications
  • Position tracking applications
