    APMC4110: Busless PMC Carrier Card

    • Holds one PMC module
    • Delivers power to PMC module
    • Enables a trouble-free start-up sequence
    • Stand-alone design needs no chassis or backplane
    This PMC module carrier card allows use of a PMC module in an independent stand-alone mode. The carrier card delivers power to the PMC module and regulates the PCI bus start-up sequence to prevent a system lock-up by the connection to the local bus.
