3U cPCI® Serial Carrier Card for AcroPack Modules

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 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 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.

  • 3U CompactPCI Serial
  • Rear I/O access
  • 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
