The PCI Express to XMC module Adapter allows a single width XMC VITA 42.3 compatible module to be used in a PCI Express x8 or x16 slot. The Adapter utilizes ultra high-speed PCIe drivers/repeaters to ensure reliable PCIe link operation with up to Gen3 speed and supports up to eight PCI Express lanes. It is transparent to PCI Express and does not require any additional drivers or software for normal operation. Note that the maximum PCIe link speed is dependent on the used XMC module and the host system and cannot be guaranteed by Innovative.
The XMC P16 connector’s high-speed signal pairs, which are typically connected to the Multi-Gigabit Transceivers (MGT) on the XMC module’s FPGA, are routed to a dual Mini SAS HD SB type connector and, with an optional XMC-PCIe x8 Adapter Satellite Board, provide user with the two high-speed QSFP ports. This allows for a simple way to “patch-panel” communications links between cards and or/other systems. A direct board to board connection without the Satellite board is also possible when two boards are used inside the same host system. Typically speeds up to 3Gbps or more are achievable via this link when operating with most Innovative XMC modules.
