The APCe8675 is a PCIe bus adapter board that allows a PC (PCIe bus master) to control and communicate with the hosted XMC module. It simply acts as an adapter to route signals between the system’s PCIe bus and the XMC module connector.

This card is a Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) bus card carrier for an XMC module. The carrier card acts as an adapter to route PCIe bus signals between the PCIe bus of your PC and the P15 connector of an XMC module card. Access to XMC P16 and P4 rear I/O is provided through connectors P2, P3 and J1. XMC modules with front I/O can be accessed though the front mounting bracket. Cables are available to connect the P2 and P3 rear I/O signals to other carrier cards in adjacent slots. Cables are also available to connect the J1 rear I/O to a front panel bracket mounted connector located in an adjacent slot.

The I/O signals are accessible via rear connectors and though the front mounting bracket. To simplify wiring, Acromag offers cables to connect the carrier’s rear I/O signals to other carrier cards in adjacent slots. Cables are also available to connect the carrier’s rear I/O to a front panel connector in an adjacent slot.

Select XMC modules from Acromag’s offering of high-performance FPGA and I/O solutions or use any third-party ANSI/VITA 42 compliant mezzanine modules.

Performance Specifications

XMC Compliance

XMC Module: Complies with ANSI/VITA 42.0-2008.

I/O Interface

Serial Rear I/O (P2, P3): Connector: Samtec QSH-DP 0.50 mm Q Pairs® high speed ground plane socket strip, differential pair.

These ports provide the ability to connect to left and right neighbor carrier cards using high speed serial protocols such as XAUI or Aurora.

Supports up to five transmit and five receive high speed (5Gb/s) differential pairs or five LVDS pairs when used with Samtec QPairs® High Speed Twinax cables.

Rear I/O (J1):Connector: MD68 (internal SCSI), male.32 LVDS pairs routed from the XMC P4 connector.

PCI Express Interface

PCI Express interface: 8 lane, Gen 1 capable.

PCIe bus compliance: This device meets or exceeds all written PCI Express specifications per revision 1.1 dated March 28, 2005.

Environmental

Operating temperature: 0 to 70°C.

Storage temperature: -55 to 125°C.

Relative humidity: 5 to 95% non-condensing.

Power: The carrier provides 3.3V, 12V and -12V power to the XMC module. The 12V power source is jumperselectable from the PCIe bus 12V supply or the PCIe graphics power connector. The DC/DC converter generates a -12V supply from the 12V source.

3.3V (±10%): 0mA.
12V (±5%): 270mA, typical with fan operating.

Currents specified are for the carrier board only. For the total current required from each supply, add the XMC module currents.

MTBF: Contact the factory.

Physical

Dimensions: Length: 12.283 inches (312.0 mm). Height: 4.200 inches (106.68 mm).

Width: Occupies two slots with fan installed (fan is mounted on solder side, height is 10 mm). Occupies one slot with fan removed.

Board thickness: 0.062 inches (1.59 mm).

Connectors
J1: Board-to-board connection of J14 user signals.
J2: Power source select jumper.
J3: Auxiliary power connector (PCIe graphics).
J4: JTAG I/O voltage select jumper.
J14, J16 : XMC user signals (rear I/O).
J15: XMC PCIe signals.
P1: PCI Express V1.1 x8 lanes card edge.
P2, P3: Board-to-board connection of J16 user signals.
P4: Fan power.
P5: JTAG (Xilinx programming adapter).
