  • Combine different interface types and functions on one VME card

The AT’s VME-PMC-CAR is a single slot, double height (6U) VME64x, extended VMEbus module with two separate PMC slots. The VME-PMC-CAR uses an on board, industry standard, Tundra chip (Tsi148) providing the bridge between the VMEbus and PCIbus. The VME-PMC-CAR fulfils the requirements of the VME64x extension plus the Interface for Rear I/O. Each PMC-slot is in conformance with the Draft Standard Physical and Environmental Layers for PCI Mezzanine Cards (P1386.1). The card comes standard with easy to read front panel configuration displays, and two single width PMC slots. The VME PMC carrier allows the user to build powerful and cost effective VME systems by increasing board density.

The VME-PMC-CAR is designed to plug all standard PMC modules with a maximum PCIbus width of 64bit operating at 66MHz. The VME-PMC-CAR carrier board supports the +3.3V PCIbus signaling, hence only +3.3V tolerant devices may be used.
