XMC to PCI Express Adapter Board Overview

The PCI Express to XMC module adapter allows a single width XMC module to be used in a PCI Express slot. The XMC module is VITA 42.3 compatible and supports a single PCI Express lane.

The P16 connector breakout provides convenient access to all P16 signals through an MDR 68 connector. Signals from P16 are routed as differential pairs to JP1 so that high speed IO standards can be used to the cable.

The adapter is completely transparent to PCI Express. All signals from the PCI Express host bus are connected directly to the XMC module.

More power to the XMC module may be provide by using the optional power connector to the adapter card. The power connector provides +12V to the adapter and powers an on-card 3.3V module capable of 8A. The power connector is compatible with standard disk drive power connectors in PC systems.

No software is required to operate the adapter.

The XMC module mounts securely to the adapter using standoffs and with the end bracket. The bracket mates to standard PMC end brackets and supports an EMI gasket. All connectors from the XMC end bracket are fully accessible.
