Product short description:
  • Two XMC slots
  • PCIe x16 Gen 3 interface via Expansion or Data plane
  • Air or Conduction-cooled
  • Supports full Jn6 rear I/O

The VPX4850 carrier cards provide a simple and cost-effective solution for interfacing XMC modules to a VPX computer system. They offer host processors low latency access to the XMC modules through high-speed interconnects on the carrier card.

VPX4850 Series: 6U VPX Carrier Cards for XMC Modules Description

The VPX4850 carrier cards provide a simple and cost-effective solution for interfacing XMC modules to a VPX computer system. They offer host processors low latency access to the XMC modules through high-speed interconnects on the carrier card.

The XMC sites enable rapid data throughput with their use of a 16-lane PCIe Gen 3 interface. These sites support front or rear panel I/O. Two versions offer a choice of direct PCIe connection to the VPX backplane via the data or expansion plane.

By inserting XMC modules providing advanced signal processing, communication, GPU/FPGA computing and other capabilities, developers can leverage hundreds of available functions currently unavailable in a VPX platform. The carrier cards also support the use of a prXMC processor module.

These carriers are ideal for high-performance aerospace, defense, scientific research, and industrial systems requiring high-speed I/O expansion. The VPX4850 is available in air-cooled and conduction-cooled versions.

Software support packages facilitate use with Microsoft Windows®, Linux®, and VxWorks™ operating systems.

Acromag has more than 60 years of experience working with defense, aerospace, scientific, and industrial applications. We are committed to providing embedded computing solutions with the best long-term value in the industry. These boards are designed and manufactured in the USA with a 2-year warranty and a life expectancy of at least 7 years.
