Using a rugged PC or need the confidence of Extended Temperature components in your system? PCIBPMCET is an industrial temperature range PMC carrier for PCI bus systems. The design is robust with extended temperature components, impedance controlled, PCI compliant routing, matched length differentially routed IO, zero bus stub options for high speed Ethernet and Serial ports, heavy power planes with decoupling for the PMC voltages, and more. For high power applications the "Zero Slot Fans"™ are available. With the PCIBPMCET (PCI Bridge PMC Extended Temperature) adapter/carrier converter card all you have to do is install your PMC onto the adapter, and plug into the PCI slot. PCIBPMCET is compatible with both 64 and 32 bit PCI slots. PCIBPMCET is a universal voltage 1/2 length PCI card. The PMC slot can be programmed to use 3.3 or 5V for VIO. The bridge provides plug and play operation.

The PMC user IO connector Pn4 is brought out to one of two connectors for access (DIN IDC or SCSI II). The signals corresponding to the PrPMC standard Ethernet and Serial lines can optionally be connected to the Ethernet and Serial port connectors at the top edge of the board. The signals are isolated with resistor packs to reduce the bus stub to the thickness of the PCB. The routing of the user IO is done with matched length impedance controlled traces between Pn4 and the SCSI connector. The DIN connector intercepts the routes and has impedance controlled differentially routed signals at that point. The DIN connector lengths are reasonably close and not matched. The SCSI lengths are matched down to the mil. Any IO supplied through the PMC front panel connector is available in the standard PC PCI IO location usually at the rear of the chassis. The PMC bezel connector is mounted through the PCI mounting bracket.

With the SCSI connector option we recommend using it with our SCSI cable and the HDEterm68 breakout block for ease of debugging. To mate with the VME DIN connector; DINterm64 is a 64 position terminal strip compatible with the PCIBPMCET and the DIN Ribbon Cable 64 is a 64 position ribbon cable that can be used to interconnect the carrier with the terminal strip.

For superior performance PCIBPMCET has two cooling cutouts for increased airflow to the PMC. For additional airflow fans can be added to the board as an ordering option. The fans are added using Dynamic Engineering proprietary technology to be mounted in a "Zero Slot Fan"™ configuration - meaning that the fan(s) do not take any extra slots. There are two potential locations and options for either, neither or both are specified by position FAN12 where 1 is the front location closest to the bezel, 2 is the rear location.

The PCI bus is interconnected to the PMC via a 64 bit 66 MHz capable bridge. The bridge allows the PCI bus to operate with different parameters than the PMC card - for example the PCI bus can operate at 66 MHz with 64 bit data and the PMC with 33 MHz and 32 bit data. The buffering within the bridge will take care of the rate and data matching. The local side can also operate at 64/66 if the PMC supports it. PCIBPMCET can control the M66EN signal via a dipswitch setting or the PMC can control the M66EN setting directly.

The voltage definitions are also buffered between the PCI and PMC buses. The PCI VIO automatically defines the reference levels for the primary side of the bridge. A switch is used to control a MOSFET to select which voltage reference is used on the secondary side. A 5V PMC card can be used with a 3.3V PCI bus and vice-versa. The voltages can also be the same.

The bridge insures that multiple PCIBPMCET cards can be installed onto the same PCI bus stub.

The 3.3V Aux. 3.3V, 5V, +12 and -12V voltages are supplied to the PMC slot via the PCI connector. The voltages are bypassed at the PCI connector and at the PMC connector. Heavy planes are used to supply more than 1A per pin at the PMC. This is more current than allowed by the PCI or PMC specifications to allow for designs that are a bit past the power specifications.

The PMC JTAG connections are routed to a header. The header is labeled and can be used to reprogram your FLASH on a Xilinx or similar FPGA board making use of the JTAG connections. Please let us know if you want this header installed by adding -JTAG to your order.

    PCIBPMCET Benefits

  • Speed
  • With the PCIBPMCET design, the backplane PCI bus can operate at 33 or 66 MHz and with 32 or 64 bit data paths while the PMC has the same options isolated by the bridge. Depending on the configuration, the bridge may reduce latency when a 32/33 PMC is used in a 64/66 system since the bridge can buffer the accesses and do the conversion locally. For same size transfers there will be an added delay passing through the bridge for target read and write operations. Interrupts bypass the bridges in the system to provide no added delay in that path.

  • Price
  • PCIBPMCET is a quality board at a reasonable price. The overall system cost can be reduced by making use of existing PMC designs in PCI applications without paying for the expense of a new design and layout. Quantity discounts are available. When your quantity grows to the point where a native PCI or other configuration is warranted please contact Dynamic Engineering to see about a flattened design to eliminate the carrier and perhaps other boards in your system.

  • Ease of Use
  • PCIBPMCET is easy to use. A plug and play interface to the PMC site. The Bridge can be configured with the user switches on board; eliminating any requirement for special software for the bridge itself. The board comes configured for a 66 MHz capable primary bus and 33 MHz secondary bus. In most cases the switches can be left with the factory settings. The switches are clearly labeled on the fab. The manual also contains clear directions for use.
