Mezzanine Cards: PMC, XMC and AMC

Quasi Standard of Mezzanine Cards in VME Systems

PMC and XMC are the quasi standard for mezzanine cards in VME systems. esd's PMC and XMC modules extend your system with a bus interface (CAN, CAN FD, EtherCAT, Ethernet) or an intelligent sub system (e.g. XMC-CPU/2041). Furthermore esd develops customized PMC and XMC modules. VME systems without PMC slot can be extended with an esd VME-PMC-Caddy and PC systems can be extended with a PCIe-XPIMC-Carrier board.
