CompactPCI serial carrier card has rugged modules for embedded computing

Equipped with two ruggedised mPCIe analogue I/O, digital I/O, serial communication and FPGA mezzanine modules, the CPCI-S.0 is designed by Acromag for embedded computing.

The ACPS3310 3U CompactPCI serial mezzanine module carrier card targets embedded measurement and control applications.

The board has two AcroPack module slots to accommodate a wide variety of I/O signal processing tasks. AcroPacks is a family of more than 25 enhanced mini PCIe modules that perform analogue I/O, digital I/O, serial communication, FPGA computing and other functions. Field I/O signals are securely routed through the carrier board from 68-pin front panel connectors to the AcroPack I/O modules eliminating loose internal cabling.

A PCI Express link interfaces the I/O modules to the bus backplane. CompactPCI Serial is a modern high-performance modular embedded computing standard that is very fast, versatile and economical. It can be used for defence, aerospace, transportation, scientific test and measurement, manufacturing and oil and gas sectors.

The company offers over 25 rugged AcroPack I/O modules, including the ACPS3310, which are available to developers of CompactPCI Serial computer systems. Integrators can mix them to tailor them to meet I/O requirements using COTS-baed AcroPack modules.

CompactPCI Serial is a PICMG open standard with proven Eurocard mechanics supported by a variety of vendors providing CPUs, racks, graphics, storage, communication, and other peripherals.

AcroPack modules are available for A/D, D/A, discrete level monitoring/control, counter/timer, RS232/422/485, GbE, CAN bus, avionics, and FPGA computing tasks. Software tools support Linux, Windows, and VxWorks operating systems.

Acromag was founded in 1957. The company designs and manufactures high-tech industrial electronics. It headquarters are near Detroit, Michigan, USA and there is a global network of sales representatives and distributors. Acromag offers embedded computing and I/O solutions including general purpose I/O boards, single board computers, FPGA modules, embedded computers, COM Express products, mezzanine modules, wiring accessories, and software.
