TCP270 3U CompactPCI PMC Carrier Board

3U CompactPCI PMC carrier for one PMC module. The TEWS TCP270 provides front I/O and rear I/O for a single width PMC module. This PMC to 3U CompactPCI adapter is used to build modular, flexible and cost effective I/O solutions with PMC devices in CompactPCI systems.

32 bit/33 MHz accesses are supported on the PCI bus. The TCP270 is used as a mechanical adaptor to connect a standard PMC module in 3U CompactPCI systems. The TCP270 supports PMC front I/O and optional CompactPCI rear I/O at CompactPCI connector J2/P2. The pin assignment corresponds to the PICMG 2.3 R1.0 PMC on CompactPCI signal mapping. The use of PMC I/O on the J2/P2 connector (TCP270-11) precludes the use of 64 bit CompactPCI backplanes. The TCP270 carrier complies with the PICMG 2.0 Revision 3.0 CompactPCI specification.

Operating temperature range is -40°C to +85°C.
