Acromag APMC4110 PMC Carrier Card

The Acromag APMC4110 busless PMC module carrier card enables the use of a PMC module in an independent stand-alone mode. The APMC4110 carrier card powers a PMC module and regulates the PCI bus start-up sequence to prevent a system lock-up by the connection to the local bus. For troubleshooting, a 14-pin Xilinx JTAG connector facilitates boundary scan debugging. Pricing for the Acromag APMC4110 starts at $275. The busless carrier card is ideal for custom computing applications based on a re-configurable FPGA module operating independently of VME, CompactPCI, or other bus-level resources.

Acromag APMC4110

  • Single-slot non-intelligent PMC carrier card
  • Board acts as an adapter to route signals to and from a PMC module
  • Stand-alone design does not require expensive card cage or other computer chassis
  • Ideal for custom computing solutions based on configurable FPGA modules
  • On-board DC-DC converter provides +3.3V DC to the PMC module from a +5V power source
  • Users can optionally provide a ±12V DC source
  • Manual reset button initiates a PCI reset at user’s discretion
  • Voltage monitor designed to prevent code execution errors during power-up, power-down, or potential brown-out conditions when +5V DC supply dips too low
  • A standard 14-pin Xilinx JTAG connection is available for utilizing the TDI, TDO, TCK, and TMS signals
  • Users have full access to the field I/O via two 50-pin ribbon cable connectors
