VR XMC/x01

VR XMC/x01 6U VPX Carrier Board for two XMC/PMC Modules

6U VPX carrier that provides front I/O and rear I/O for two XMC or PMC modules in 6U VPX systems.

This XMC/PMC to 6U VPX adapter from CONCURRENT Technologies is used to build modular, flexible and cost effective I/O solutions with XMC/PMC devices in VPX systems.

The VR XMC/x01 is 32/64bit 33/66/100/133 MHz 6U PMC/XMC carrier for the VPX bus with front I/O and Pn4/Pn6 rear I/O. The XMC interface supports PCIe x1, x2, x4, x8 or x16 (Gen1 and Gen2). The board has one RS-232 management port, 8 RS-232/422/485 ports, 4 SATA 6Gbit/s ports, one 4 channel DMA engine for fast data block moves and 8 GPIO ports. The RS-422/485 ports offer full duplex mode. Opt. two SATA 6 Gbit/s HDD/SSDs can be mounted instead of the PMC/XMC modules.
