Acromag VPX4810 3U VPX Carrier Cards

Acromag introduced the VPX4810 3U VPX carrier cards for interfacing a PMC or XMC module to a VPX computer system. The VPX4810 boards route power and interface bus signals to a plug-in mezzanine module through the VPX card slot connector. The VPX4810 features an 8-lane PCIe bus Gen 2 interface that enables rapid data throughput. The air-cooled model (0 to 70°C range) carrier cards is available for $1600. Conduction-cooled and REDI versions are also available. The Acromag VPX4810 3U VPX carrier cards are ideal for high-performance industrial, defense, scientific research, and telephony systems requiring high-speed I/O.
