Adapter Card allows installation of PMC card into cPCI slot.

Press Release Summary:

Model cPCIBPMC3U64ET has PMC card slot mounted to universal 3U 4HP cPCI card that is wired for 64-bit PCI operation with pull-ups on control lines to allow use in 32-bit system. PMC bezel connector is mounted through cPCI mounting bracket. Power is routed from cPCI to PMC connectors with mini-planes, each of which is rated for more than maximum PMC draw. Featuring operating temperature range of -40 to 85°C, product is suitable for 32/64 with 33/66 MHz bus operation.

cPCIBPMC3U64-ET by Dynamic Engineering Bridged Carrier

August 27, 2006

The cPCIBPMC3U64ET -a cost effective solution to putting extended temperature PMCs into cPCI environments.

The cPCIBPMC3U64 is easy to use with a plug and play interface to the PMC site. Make use of existing PMC designs in cPCI applications without paying for the expense of a new design and layout. Quantity discounts are available.

The cPCIBPMC3U64ET ( cPCI to PMC ) adapter / carrier converter card provides the ability to install a PMC card into a standard cPCI slot.

By customer request Dynamic Engineering has developed two extended temperature versions of the popular cPCIBPMC design. The design effort included switching to a new bridge to meet the temperature and timing requirements. The new bridge brings new features including the ability to operate the PMC side at a higher clock rate than the cPCI side. The new bridge also has built in features for local address spaces, using the PMC clock in monarch mode for the secondary side, and operating in transparent or non-transparent modes. The designs are ready for all of your PMC applications.

The cPCIBPMC3U64ET has a PMC card slot mounted to a universal 3U 4HP cPCI card. Suitable for 32/64 with 33/ 66 MHz bus operation. The 3U card is wired for 64 bit PCI operation with pull-ups on the control lines to allow use in a 32 bit system. The PMC bezel connector is mounted though the cPCI mounting bracket. The cPCIBPMC3U64ET is an extended temperature design -40C to +85C standard. Conformal Coating is an option.

The PCI bus is interconnected to the PMC via 64 bit 66 MHz capable layout. The slower and more narrow device will determine the interface characteristics. The supplied dip-switch is used to control the bridge configuration. The user can select the clock rate, [33/66] on both buses and has access to the GPIO bits. PME and the Interrupt request lines are routed from the PMC to the cPCI connector.

The PCI VIO is interconnected to the primary side of the bridge. The secondary side of the bridge has programmable VIO allowing 5V PMCs to be used in 3V systems and vice-versa. The voltage select pins are not installed on the cPCIBPMC3U64ET. The bridge will automatically adapt to the PCI bus reference voltage. Many PMCs are "universal" and can work with 3.3 or 5V cPCI backplanes. The secondary side has a shunt for the user to select 5V or 3V operation.

The cPCIBPMC3U64ET follows the PMC specs for maximum power consumption and heat dissipation. The power is routed from the cPCI to PMC connectors with mini-planes each of which is rated for more than the maximum PMC draw. 3.3, 5, VIO, +12, -12

Size: 3U 4HP cPCI

PMC compatible slot: 1 PMC Slot provided.

Clocks: cPCI bus can operate at 66 or 33 MHz. The PMC must be 66 MHz capable for 66 MHz operation to work properly. User switch to allow or disable 66 MHz. operation.

Access Width: Standard cPCI byte lanes supported for byte, word and long access dependent on installed PMC. 64 or 32 bit operation supported.

Software Interface: PMC register definitions as defined by installed hardware. No software set-up required by cPCIBPMC.

Power: +5, +3.3, +12, -12V, and VIO supplied to PMC.

IO Interface: Front Bezel IO supported at cPCI bracket. Partial Jn4 "user IO" supported [Ethernet and I2C] with interconnection to J2.

Speed: The bridge allows for isolation and for differing clock rates on the cPCI backplane and the PMC. The PMC can operate at speeds above, the same or below the cPCI clock rate. An optional local oscillator can be installed when the PMC is to be operated at a rate higher than the cPCI bus rate. The PMC can also operate at a different bus width with the bridge doing the clock and rate matching.

Compatibility: The cPCIBPMC3U64ET is PMC compliant per the IEEE 1386 specification. All Dynamic Engineering PMC Modules are compatible with the cPCIBPMC3U64ET. The cPCIBPMC3U64ET is also cPCI compliant.
