SBE Makes PMCs to PCI Integration Easier with Passive 64-Bit Adapter

7/22/2003 - SBE Inc. (NASDAQ: SBEI), a leading supplier of high performance OEM communications solutions, introduced adaptPCI-1PMC, a single slot PCI card that facilitates the integration of any PMC or PTMC board into standard PCI systems.

Designed to host any 32- or 64-bit PMC module, adaptPCI-1PMC is a passive PMC-to-PCI requiring no special bridge software to integrate PMC mezzanine cards into a PCI system. The user I/O signals from the PMC J4 connector are accessible via connector pads at the side of the board. The adaptPCI-1PMC card allows data transfers of 32 or 64 bits at up to 66 MHz, and supports PN1 to PN4 connections with 3.3V or 5V signaling.

"Delivering the advantages of the adaptPCI-1PMC to our customers supports our continued commitment to helping engineers combat the many design challenges they face today," said Darrell Gray, Director of Engineering for SBE. "The adaptPCI-1PMC significantly reduces the time required to integrate PMC or PTMC boards into PCI systems, thus allowing our customers to focus on their core competencies," continued Gray.

Well-suited for enterprise router/switch/gateway providers and system integrators, adaptPCI-1PMC can be conveniently bundled with SBE’s PMC and PTMC modules or sold individually for use with any standard third-party module. An optional 3.3V on-board power regulator is also available for PCI systems without 3.3V power included.

The adaptPCI-1PMC board is currently available. Pricing varies based on configuration requirements and OEM quantities. Please contact the SBE sales team at 925-355-2000 for pricing details.
