CompactPCI Serial I/OThese boards hold two AcroPack® or mPICe mezzanine modules to interface I/O signals to a CompactPCI® Serial system for a wide variety of I/O signal processing tasks. AcroPacks are a family of more than 25 enhanced mini PCIe modules that perform analog I/O, digital I/O, serial communication, FPGA computing and other functions. Field I/O signals are securely routed through the carrier board from 68-pin front panel connectors to the AcroPack I/O modules eliminating loose internal cabling. A PCI Express link interfaces the I/O modules to the bus backplane. CompactPCI Serial® is a modern high-performance modular embedded computing standard that is very fast, versatile and economical. It is ideal for defense, aerospace, transportation, oil/gas, scientific, test/measurement, and manufacturing applications. CompactPCI Serial is a PICMG® open standard with proven Eurocard mechanics supported by a wide variety of vendors providing CPUs, racks, graphics, storage, communication, and other peripherals.
AcroPack Series - Continued
To simplify the integration of AcroPack mezzanine modules into your host system they maintain the same functionality and memory map of existing Industry Pack (IP) modules.
Acromag provides software support packages for embedded applications running on Linux®, Windows®, or VxWorks® operating systems. The libraries provide generic routines to handle reads, writes, interrupts, and other functions. Demonstration programs enable the developer to quickly exercise the I/O modules before attaching the routines to the application program. This diagnostic tool can save hours of troubleshooting and debugging.
These next generation mezzanine modules are RoHS compliant and ideal for the following industries: military, aerospace, defense industry, scientific, automation, and development labs.
