ModelACPS3320: 3U cPCI Serial Carrier Card for AcroPack Modules
3U cPCI Serial Carrier Card
Description• 3U CompactPCI Serial
• Two I/O expansion slots (AcroPack® or mPCIe)
• Rear I/O access

The ACPS3320 is a 3U CompactPCI Serial carrier card for Acromag’s AcroPack mezzanine modules. Two I/O expansion slots interface AcroPack or mini PCIe modules to the PCIe bus. All connections to field signals are made through rear backplane connectors on the carrier board which passes them to the individual AcroPack modules.

Select from 25+ AcroPack modules to install any combination of analog I/O, digital I/O, serial I/O, communication, and FPGA processor functions. This modular approach allows the user to create a board which is customised to the application, thus saving slots and reducing costs.

APCe7000 Series

PCI Express Carrier Card for AcroPack Modules

ModelAPCe7012APCe7022APCe7040
Carrier CardsCarrier CardsCarrier Cards
Description• One AcroPack or mini-PCIe mezzanine module slot

• Low-profile PCIe carrier card

This board interfaces one AcroPack mezzanine module to a PCI Express bus on a PC-based computer system.

Select I/O modules from Acromag’s offering or use most third-party mPCIe compliant modules.
• Two AcroPack or mini-PCIe mezzanine module slots
• Non-Intelligent carrier card
• PCIe x4 interface

This board interfaces two AcroPack mezzanine modules to a PCI Express bus on a PC-based computer system.

Two AcroPack module slots give you the freedom to mix a variety of I/O functions (A/D, D/A, digital in, digital out, serial I/O, etc.) on a single board. Or, combine modules of the same type for almost one hundred channels on a single card. Either way, the APCe7020 saves your precious card slots and reduces your costs.
• Four AcroPack or mini-PCIe mezzanine module slots
• Non-Intelligent carrier card
• PCIe x4 interface

This board interfaces four AcroPack mezzanine modules to a PCI Express bus on a PC-based computer system. It is designed to provide isolation between the AcroPack field I/O signals and the host when used with an isolated AcroPack module.

Four AcroPack module slots give you the freedom to mix a variety of I/O functions (A/D, D/A, digital in, digital out, serial I/O, FPGA, etc.) on a single board. Or, combine modules of the same type for almost two hundred channels on a single card. Either way, the APCe7040 saves your precious card slots and reduces your costs.

VPX4500 Series

VPX Carrier Card for AcroPack Modules

VPX4500
carrier card vpx
• Three AcroPack or mini-PCIe module slots support any combination of I/O functions
• PCI Express version 2.1 compliant
• Fused +1.5V, +3.3V, +5V, +12V, and -12V DC power is provided. A fuse is present on each supply line serving each AcroPack module
• Air-cooled and conduction-cooled options

The VPX4500 is a 3U VPX carrier for Acromag AcroPack (AP) mezzanine board modules. The carrier board provides a modular approach to system assembly since each carrier can be populated with any combination of analogue input/output, digital input/output, communication, AP modules. The modularity allows the user to create a board which is customised to the application. This saves money and space; a single carrier board populated with AP modules may replace several dedicated function VPX boards. The VPX4500 carrier board provides impressive functionality at low cost.

Model VPX4500E-LF is an air-cooled product that supports three AcroPack sites. Two of the sites provide field I/O connections through front panel mounted 50 pin shielded connectors. The third site provides field I/O connections through the VPX backplane.

XMCAP2000 Series

XMC Carrier Card for AcroPack Modules

XMCAP2000
Carrier Card XMC
• Two AcroPack or mini-PCIe mezzanine module slots
• Non-Intelligent carrier card
• PCIe x4 interface

This board interfaces two AcroPack mezzanine modules to a PCI Express bus on an air-cooled XMC carrier.
