The VMEbus unit VME-PMC-CADDY/2plus is a VME64-base board which can carry up to two PMC modules of normal size.
For the VMEbus connection the VME-PCI bridge Tsi148 by IDT is used.

VMEbus Interface
The Tsi148 is designed in a way that the board can either operate as slave or as master on the VMEbus. If the board operates as master, it supports a 4-level
The VMEbus interrupt can be applied to any of the seven interrupt-request lines. The board is connected to the VMEbus by two 160-pin VG-connectors (complementary to DIN41612) for VME64 systems.
An active VMEbus-interrupt request and a VMEbus access onto the board are indicated by LEDs in the front panel

PMC Slots
Both PMC slots are designed according to the standard IEEE Std 1386.1-2001 (except the standard I/O pin routing). It is possible therefore to insert all PMC modules, that support 3.3 V signalling.
In addition to the connectors for the PMCaddress/data and control signals, every slot of the VME-PMC-CADDY/2plus has an I/O connector which applies the I/O-signals of the PMC modules to VMEbus connectors P0 and P2.

In the option ‘-32P’ the pin assignment is acc. to IEEE Std 1386-2001, Table 8.
This pin assignment offers the connection of the two PMC-modules via P2, because several PMC-I/O-signals are shorted at P2.

Equipped with a 256 MByte DDR2 RAM ECC and a 128 Mbyte Flash (NOR) as memory, the VME-PMC-CADDY/2plus uses a 400 MHz Freescale MPC 8349 microcontroller to configure the PMC modules and the VME-PCI bridge.

Two Gbit Ethernet ports and two serial configuration interfaces are easily accessible via the front panel.
The serial interfaces are designed as RS-232 interfaces.

Front Panel
The front panel of the VME-PMCCADDY/2plus has two cutouts for the front panels of the PMC modules. A blank cover for unused slots is included.

BSPs are available for VxWorks and Linux. BSPs for other operating systems are available on request.
