Product short description:
  • Air-cooled, conduction-cooled and REDI versions
  • 3U Single XMC slot
  • PCIe x8 Gen 2 interface

The VPX4812A can be used as a VPX switch card allowing a host CPU to communicate with up to 3 downstream cards in addition to the XMC card. Each VPX port can be configured to be x4 or x8.

The VPX4814A is a peripheral XMC carrier board designed to be used in a system that uses a VPX AcroExpress® CPU.

VPX4812A & VPX4814A: VPX Carrier Cards for XMC Modules Description

These 3U mezzanine carrier cards provide a simple and cost-effective solution for interfacing a XMC module to a VPX computer system. The carrier card routes power and bus signals to a plug-in mezzanine module through the VPX card slot connector. Industrial I/O and configurable FPGA modules from Acromag or other vendors are supported.

The VPX4812A can be used as a VPX switch card allowing a host CPU to communicate with up to 3 downstream cards in addition to the XMC card. Each VPX port can be configured to be x4 or x8.

The VPX4814A is a peripheral XMC carrier board designed to be used in a system that uses a VPX AcroExpress® CPU.

These carriers are ideal for high-performance industrial, defense, scientific research, and telephony systems requiring high-speed I/O expansion. The VPX4812A and VPX4814A is available in three versions: air-cooled, conduction-cooled and a Ruggedized Enhanced Design Implementation (REDI VITA 48).
