CompactPCI® Backplane Coupler
Serial to Classic Bridge • Dual Card Assembly

Available as companion boards, the PCX/SXP-JAM assembly is a bridging and expansion solution for CompactPCI® Serial systems with need for integrating CompactPCI® Classic cards. While the SXP-JAM is a CompactPCI® Serial board which resides on the outmost peripheral slot of the Serial backplane, the PCX-JAM is configured as system slot card for the CompactPCI® Classic backplane. Both boards are connected together by a mezzanine stacking connector, which is used to forward a PCI Express® link from the SXP-JAM to a PCI® bridge on the PCX-JAM. Mounted together in a 4HP pitch, the PCX/SXP-JAM boards expand a modern CompactPCI® Serial system by up to seven CompactPCI® Classic card slots.

When using either two adjacent separate standard backplanes CompactPCI® Classic and CompactPCI® Serial, or alternatively a custom hybrid backplane, both PCX/SXP-JAM cards will be aligned together in a 4HP pitch (8HP front panel width assembly). The PCX-JAM resides left of the SXP-JAM, requiring the systems slots of both backplane segments to be right aligned.

In addition to the 32bit 33/66MHz PCI® bridge, the PCX-JAM is provided with three RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet jacks (Intel® I210-IT controllers) for industrial networking, and three USB 3.0 Type-A receptacles (TI USB controller). Further more, the SXP-JAM can accommodate an SATA SSD module, size M.2 up to 22110.
