3U cPCI® Serial Carrier Card for AcroPack Modules

The ACPS3310 is a 3U CompactPCI Serial carrier card for Acromag’s AcroPack mezzanine modules. Two isolated I/O expansion slots interface AcroPack or mini PCIe modules to the PCIe bus. All connections to field signals are made through front panel 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 customized to the application, thus saving slots and reducing costs.

The AcroPack product line updates our popular Industry Pack I/O modules with a PCIe interface format. This tech-refresh design offers a compact, low-cost I/O solution with the same functionality and memory map of the original Industry Pack mezzanine modules. New modules offer additional capabilities such as FPGA computing, Ethernet, CAN bus, and avionics interfaces.

These carriers are ideal for high-performance systems in aerospace, defense, transportation, oil/gas, test/measurement, manufacturing, and scientific research applications. End-users and system integrators benefit from a broad range of I/O functions in a small form factor.

  • Two AcroPack or mini-PCIe module slots support any combination of I/O functions
  • PCI Express Version 2.1 compliant carrier
  • Compliant with PICMG CPCI-S.0 R2.0 standard
  • PCIe switch allows two devices to share a single 4HP peripheral board slot in a CPCI-S chassis
  • Geographical addressing identifies carrier location on the backplane
  • Front panel 68-pin VHDCI CHAMP 0.8mm connectors for field I/O signals
  • Isolated power supply option for use with isolated AcroPack modules
  • Fused +1.5V, +3.3V, +5V, +12V, -12V DC power. A fuse is present on each supply line serving each AcroPack module.
  • JTAG header for programming and debugging AcroPack modules with an FPGA
  • Extended temperature range. Operation: -40...+85°C (200 LFM airflow). Storage: -55...+125°C.
  • Software development tools for VxWorks, Linux, and Windows environments
