The VPX4820 carrier card provides a simple and cost-effective solution for interfacing a PMC or XMC module to a VPX computer system.

Connect to the OpenVPX™ via Expansion plane for a direct PCIe connection over the VPX backplane. This allows host processors access to a high-performance, low latency interconnect to the PMC and XMC modules on the carrier card.

The PMC site uses 32/64-bit, PLX technology with a PCIe to PCI-X bridge; while the XMC site enables rapid data throughput with its use of an 8-lane PCIe Gen 2 interface. These sites support front or rear panel I/O.

By inserting PMC or XMC industrial I/O and configurable FPGA modules, developers can now leverage hundreds of available functions currently unavailable in a VPX platform.

These carriers are ideal for high-performance industrial, defense, scientific research, and telephony systems requiring high-speed I/O expansion. The VPX4820 is available in two versions: air-cooled and conduction-cooled.

The VPX4820 is one member of a family of 3U and 6U OpenVPX mezzanine carrier cards that support a simple and cost-effective solution for interfacing XMC or PMC modules to OpenVPX computer systems.
