PCI EXPRESS® Adapter Board for AMC Modules
Program Development and Validation for AMC Modules without an MTCA® System
'Hot Insert' and 'Hot Remove' enabled by integrated hot-swap controller
Software drivers/library for the Hot-Swap controller available for Linux®
PCI EXPRESS signals are passively passed through
Operation of MTCA-AMC Modules in a PC Environment
Program development and validation under defined conditions
Operation of MTCA-AMC modules in a PC*
Optional Fan for Additional Cooling of the Inserted AMC Module
Application of AMC-PCIe-Carrier
The AMC-PCIe-Carrier is designed for the quick and easy development of software for AMC modules in the PC* environment, without the need of an MTCA system.
Besides passively passing the PCIe-X1 signals through, a Hot-Swap controller is integrated, which enables 'Hot-Insert' and 'Hot-Remove'.
The current consumption of the AMC module can be measured. Colored LEDs on the board indicate the status of the power supply and of the Hot-Swap controller.
For cooling of the inserted AMCs an optional fan can be mounted at the AMC-PCIe-Carrier. All MTCA-connector signals are protected by transient voltage suppressors.
Software drivers/library for the Hot-Swap controller are available for Linux®.
SMbus supplied PCIe-slot. Full master-slave-functionality of the I²C controller, otherwise restricted IPMI compatibility.
