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

PDF print version of this specification : A4 or Letter

The 4-Channel High-Speed Serial I/O PMC (PCI Mezzanine Card) Adapter provides four channels of simultaneous, high-speed (>10 Mbps), bi-directional serial communications, plus two UART (Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter) (<1 Mbps) channels. All channels are configurable as RS232/422/485. The adapter is available in both conduction-cooled (CC) and air-cooled versions : ruggedised, industrial and commercial.

Architecture

The 4-Channel High-Speed Serial I/O PMC and CCPMC Adapters are intelligent adapters with onboard CPU and use the Motorola MPC860 PowerQUICC Integrated PowerPC Microprocessor as a communication controller. The PowerQUICC processor can easily be configured to implement different serial protocols, thus allowing the adapter to keep up with technological advances.

Features

  • Cost-effective and flexible option for systems that require both high-speed, real-time communication links as well as some low-speed serial links.
  • Offers independent I/O processing offboard the host.

Conduction-Cooling

The conduction-cooled 4-Channel High-Speed Serial I/O PMC Adapter conforms to the CCPMC (Conduction-Cooled PCI Mezzanine Card) Standard, namely VITA 20-199x and is currently implemented in accordance with VITA 20-199x, Draft 1.8.

Applications

  • Distributed real-time applications in harsh environments
  • Mission-critical applications
  • Avionics
  • Vetronics
  • High-speed sensor integration
