PCIe carrier card Interfaces XMC mezzanine module to embedded systems

ACROMAG APCe8775 carrier card offers a simple solution that allows a PC to communicate with an XMC mezzanine module over a PCI Express (PCIe) bus. System developers can insert an FPGA module or other XMC module on the carrier card to perform a variety of signal processing functions. The 3/4-length PCIe card is suitable for use in smaller embedded computers and servers with reduced-depth expansion slots. Low-profile fans provide XMC cooling from within a single expansion slot. The carrier’s PCIe x8 interface supports up to eight serial lanes for rapid data transfer between the plug-in XMC module and the host computer.
