XMC to VPX Converter

PDF print version of this specification

The XMC to VPX Converter facilitates the use of a Switched Mezzanine Card (XMC) Adapter in a VPX system. This converter can be used either for testing of XMC Adapters using a VPX-only host or it can be used in production systems, but an extra backplane slot will be required to accommodate the combination of the XMC Adapter and the XMC to VPX Converter.

The XMC to VPX Converter provides a single lane PCIe signal interface on the host XMC site.

The 64 I/O signals from the VPX P2 connector are routed through to the host PMC Pn4 Connector.
