What’s the advantage of AcroPack I/O Modules?

AcroPack is a refresh of the old IndustryPack I/O Module.  It is based on a mini PCIe form factor. The advantage being it has a down-facing connector.  This means it securely routes I/O signals through the host carrier card without any extra cabling.  Now that is a bonus!

Also, the AcroPack carrier cards are available in Mini ITX, PCIe, VPX, XMC, and other formats.  They provide direct access to the field I/O signals through front-panel CHAMP connectors or the rear backplane.

The module size is tiny at only 30 x 70mm per module.  Plus, up to four AcroPacks can plug into a single carrier card in any I/O combination.  There are more than 25 AcroPack modules to choose from!  Such as analog I/O, digital I/O, communication, FPGA computing functions, Avionics, fieldbus and more.
