July 30, 2014 - Used for interfacing PMC or XMC module to VPX computer system, VPX4810 and VPX4812 route power and interface bus signals to plug-in mezzanine module through VPX card slot connector. Both have 8-lane PCIe bus Gen 2 interface and support any standard IEEE-1386.1 module for flexibility to address I/O signal processing tasks. While VPX4810 has 64 I/O lines (P14, VITA 46.9) supported via P2 VPX connector, VPX4812 I/O is supported via P16 XMC connector.

Acromag’s two new VPX boards route power and bus signals to a plug-in XMC or PMC mezzanine module with an 8-lane PCIe interface to enable a wide variety of I/O processing and FPGA computing options.

Wixom, MI –  Acromag’s VPX4810 and VPX4812 3U VPX carrier cards provide a simple and cost-effective solution for interfacing a PMC or XMC module to a VPX computer system. These carrier cards route power and interface bus signals to a plug-in mezzanine module through the VPX card slot connector. An 8-lane PCIe bus Gen 2 interface enables rapid data throughput. By inserting PMC/XMC industrial I/O and configurable FPGA modules from Acromag or other vendors on the carrier, developers can now leverage hundreds of available function modules in a VPX platform. Pricing starts at $1300 for an air-cooled version with a 0 to 70°C range. Conduction-cooled and REDI models offer an extended operating temperature range of -40 to 85°C.

Designed and manufactured lead free in the USA these carriers are ideal for high-performance industrial, defense, scientific research, and telephony systems requiring high-speed I/O. “As developers implement the new VPX architecture, they can still enjoy access to a broad range of readily available I/O processing and FPGA computing mezzanine modules,” states Joseph Primeau, Acromag’s sales and marketing director. The VPX4810 and VPX4812 support any standard IEEE-1386.1 module for great flexibility to address I/O signal processing tasks.

Both the VPX4810 and VPX4812 carrier cards conform to VPX VITA 46.0, 46.4 and 46.9 specifications and optionally VITA 48 for Ruggedized Enhanced Design Implementation (REDI). Front and rear-panel I/O access can be accommodated; however, the front I/O option is only available on air-cooled models.   Both models are compatible with a number of VITA 65 OpenVPX module/slot profiles. The VPX4810 has 64 I/O lines (P14, VITA 46.9) are supported via the P2 VPX connector. The VPX4812 I/O is supported via the P16 XMC connector.

Acromag offers dozens of compatible PMC modules to perform A/D, D/A, digital I/O, and serial communication functions. Re-configurable FPGA modules are also available in a PMC or XMC format with multi-lane serial interconnects for high-performance algorithm acceleration and adaptive computing applications. The VPX4812 can be used as a VPX switch card allowing a host CPU to communicate with up to three downstream cards in addition to the XMC card.

Acromag has designed and manufactured measurement and control products for more than 50 years. They are an international corporation with a world headquarters near Detroit, Michigan and a global network of sales representatives and distributors. Acromag offers a complete line of embedded I/O products including bus boards, mezzanine modules, wiring accessories, and software. Industries served include military, aerospace, manufacturing, transportation, utilities, and scientific research laboratories.
