PMC Carrier Board Family

IXI’s family of PMC carrier cards adapt PCI Mezzanine Cards (PMC) to a variety of bus architectures including VME, VME64, VME64x, PCI, and PCI Express (PCIe). PMCs combine the electrical characteristics of the PCI bus with the mechanical dimensions of the Common Mezzanine Card (CMC) format, resulting in a small daughter card that can be mounted in industry standard slots to add system features, increase computing power, or increase I/O channel density. IXI’s family of PMC carriers provide a range of I/O capabilites and space-saving form factors to help you build robust, modular systems using PMCs. Choose from our family of PMC carriers to take advantage of the flexibility, economy, and performance of PMC technology.

VME/PMC Carrier Card

The VME/PMC Carrier is a 6U VME card that supports up to 2 PMC modules. Its industry standard Tundra Universe II VME/PCI bridge chip assures compliance with VME and PCI bus standards. The card comes standard with easy to read front panel configuration displays, front panel reset switch, and two single wide PMC slots. IXI’s VME/PMC Carrier allows you to build more powerful and less expensive systems by increasing board density while saving VME slot space for future system enhancements.

VME/PMC Carrier Card General Features

  • 33MHz PCI bus interface
  • Programmable DMA controller
  • VME A32/A24/A16 master and slave addressing
  • Single 6U height Eurocard
  • Full VMEbus system controller functionality
  • Easy-to-read LED configuration displays
  • 5V PCI signaling support
  • Flexible user I/O routing
    • Pelican VME/PMC
      • P4V2-64ac
      • P4V2-46dz

VME64/64x PMC Carrier Card

PMC modules may have user I/O pins that are vendor or application dependent. In an effort to maintain flexibility, ANSI/VITA standardized different I/O routing schemes, most of which are mutually exclusive. It was from the need to support the different routing schemes that the 64 and 64x were developed. With both the standard and these two variations of the VME/PMC Carrier, IXI can support all standard user I/O routing schemes.

PCI/PMC Carrier Card

The PCI/PMC Carrier card is a standard short length PCI card that supports a single PMC module. It requires no set up and supports both 3.3V and 5V PCI signaling. Develop your software in a conventional desktop PC, then move your application and PMC module to a different hardware architecture for deployment.

PCI/PMC Carrier Card General Features

  • Universal 5V or 3.3V PCI Signaling
  • 3.3V Supply in Any PCI Slot
  • 32 bit PCI 2.1 Compliant
  • 96 pin DIN Connector for Debugging PMC Designs

PCI Express/PMC Carrier Card

The PCIe/PMC Carrier card is a standard height, half length PCI Express card that supports a single PMC module. It installs in a standard 1x, 4x, 8x, or 16x PCI Express slot and is compatible with PMC modules operating at 33 Mhz or 66 Mhz. Maintain backward-compatibility with existing applications while moving into the next generation of high speed bus architecture with the Pelican PCIe/PMC carrier.

PCIe/PMC Carrier Card General Features

  • Installs in 1x, 4x, 8x, or 16x PCI Express slots
  • Supports 33 or 66 Mhz PMCs
