Mezzanine module can add mix of I/O signal

For embedded computing applications, the APA7-200 I/O module offers a PCIe interface format suitable for VPX and ruggedised PCIe-based computers, says Acromag.

It provides a user-customisable FPGA on an AcroPack mezzanine module, which plugs into a connector on an AcroPack carrier to add up to 48 TTL or 24 EIA-485/422 I/O signals, or a mix of both types. I/O combinations in a single slot run on Linux, Windows, or VxWorks OS.

Operating range is -40 to 85 degree C. Reconfiguration of the FPGA is possible via a direct download into the Flash configuration memory over the PCIe bus.  The on-board 32Mb quad serial flash memory loaded with configuration data allows automatic configuration of the FPGA on power-up.

Designed for COTS applications the AcroPacks are ROHS compliant and suitable for scientific development labs, military and aerospace applications, the defence industry, and automation applications.
