APC8620A: Non-intelligent PCI Bus Carrier for IP Modules
• Holds five IP modules
This board interfaces industry-standard Industrial I/O Pack (IP) modules to a PCI bus on a PC-based computer system.
Five IP module slots give you the freedom to mix a variety of I/O functions (A/D, D/A, digital in, digital out, serial I/O, etc.) on a single board. Or, combine modules of the same type for hundreds of channels on a single card. Either way, the APC8620A saves your precious card slots and reduces your costs.
Select I/O modules from Acromag’s offering of more than forty models or use any third-party IP mezzanine ANSI/VITA 4 modules.
IP Module Compliance (ANSI/VITA 4): Meets or exceeds all written IP specifications per ANSI/VITA 4-1995 for 8MHz or 32MHz operation. Supports Type I and Type II ID space formats.
Electrical/mechanical interface: Supports five single-size IP modules (A-E), or two double-size and one single-size IP module.
IP module I/O space, ID space, INT, and MEM space supported.
IP module I/O space: 16 and 8-bit; supports 128 byte values per IP module.
IP module ID space: 16 and 8-bit; Supports Type I 32 bytes per IP (consecutive even byte addresses) and Type II 32 words per IP via D16 data transfers.
IP module memory space: 16 and 8-bit; supports up to 8M bytes of memory space per IP module.
Interrupts: Supports two interrupt requests per IP and interrupt acknowledge cycles via access to IP INT space.
PCI Bus Compliance
This device meets or exceeds all written PCI local bus specifications per rev. 2.2 dated December 1998.
System base address: This board operates in PCI memory space. It requires 1K of memory space for mapping the carrier controls, and IP module ID, INT, and I/O space. An optional 64MB of PCI memory space is required to use IP module memory space.
Data transfer bus: Slave with 32, 16, and 8-bit data transfer operation. 32-bit read or write accesses implemented as two 16-bit transfers to IP modules.
Interrupts (PCI bus INTA# interrupt signal): Up to two requests sourced from each IP mapped to INTA#. Interrupt vectors come from IP modules via access to IP module INT space.
Operating temperature: 0 to 70°C (APC8621A) or -40 to 85°C (APC8621AE model).
Storage temperature: -55 to 100°C (all models).
Relative humidity: 5-95%non-condensing

Connectors: A-E (carrier field I/O): 50-pin male header
• Quickly create custom I/O boards by mixing and matching I/O functions.
• Conveniently configure and control the I/O modules through software with full IP module register/data access.
• Easily integrate IPs with your software using RTOS VxWorks, Linux, or Windows®.
