Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) introduced the XChange1200 air-cooled, 3U CompactPCI (cPCI) XMC/PMC carrier card. The XChange1200 features a XMC/PMC site, x1 PCI Express XMC interface, 32-bit 66-MHz PCI PMC interface, and I/O routing from the PMC P14 connector to the cPCI backplane P2 connector. Additional processing or I/O capability can be integrated into a 3U cPCI system by mounting a PMC, PrPMC, or XMC mezzanine module on the XChange1200.
iWave Systems Technologies rolled out their iW-RainboW-G9 module. The iW-RainboW-G9 features Freescale’s Power Architecture, MPC864x processor, XMC/PrPMC, form factor, four Serial RapidIO / x8 PCI Express switched interconnects, Quad Gigabit Ethernet ports, and low latency. The board is available now. The iW-RainboW-G9 is ideal for embedded networking, routers, switches, industrial control, automation, general computing, embedded storag, and time-critical applications. The module can be used as a standalone development platform to reduce development time and lower costs.
