CompactPCI CompactPCI Passive PC•MIP Module Carrier
Up to 6 Mezzanine Modules on a 6U Board
Because the customer can profit from both,
individual configuration of the system and
moderate cost, mezzanine concepts are very
popular for industrial grade computers.
Based on the PC•MIP module standard, EKF
presents the CM6-SEXTET, a
passive carrier board for up to 6 PC•MIP
The PC•MIP electrical characteristics are
derived from the PCI specification. With
respect to the mechanics, PC•MIP modules
represent an improved successor to the M-Module technology. Compared to PMC
modules, PC•MIP allows for higher system
integration due to smaller dimensions.
The CM6-SEXTET is provided with the
popular PCI bridge chip Intel/DEC 21150.
All 6 PC•MIP slots are connected to the
local PCI bus. Access to any individual
PC•MIP module by the host CPU takes
place transparently across the PCI bridge.
4 of the 6 PC•MIP slots are suitable for
modules with front panel orientated I/O
connectors (Type-II modules). In addition, all slots allow for
rear I/O across J3..J5. Two of the
neighboured slot pairs can be used for
