New 6U VPX carrier cards host dual XMC modules

19 October 2022

Acromag has expanded its OpenVPX carrier card selection with the addition of two new models that provide a simple and cost-effective solution for interfacing XMC modules to a VPX computer system.

The VPX4840 and VPX4850 feature two XMC slots with support for front or rear panel I/O. They are availableSource: AcromagSource: Acromag with VITA 42, VITA 61 or VITA 88 connectors to route power and interface bus signals to the plug-in mezzanine modules. Both models support a choice of direct PCIe connection to the VPX backplane via the data or expansion plane. The XMC sites have a 16-lane PCIe bus Gen 3 interface enabling rapid data throughput. By inserting XMC mezzanine modules on the carrier, including XMC processor (prXMC) modules, developers can now leverage hundreds of available function modules currently unavailable in a VPX platform. Pricing starts at $3,995 for an air-cooled version with a 0° C to 55° C range, and models with extended temperature ranges or conduction cooling support are also available.

These carriers are ideal for high-performance aerospace, defense, scientific research and industrial systems requiring high-speed I/O.
