Acromag introduces a new PCI Express carrier card for AcroPack modules featuring a compact design and offering RoHS compliance. The new Acromag APCe7020 board interfaces two AcroPack mezzanine modules to a PCI Express bus on a PC-based computer system.

The availability of two AcroPack or mini-PCIe module slots supports any combination of I/O functions such as A/D, D/A, digital in, digital out or serial I/O among others on a single board. Alternatively, one can combine modules of the same type for almost one hundred channels on a single card. In both applications, the APCe7020 saves precious card slots and reduces costs.

Acromag’s APCe7020 PCI Express carrier card combines a compact size with low-cost I/O and the same functionality and memory map of the existing Industry Pack modules. Designed for COTS applications, these PCIe carrier boards deliver high reliability and performance at a low cost. The extended temperature range product is ideal for military, defence, automation, aerospace, scientific, and development lab industries.

A unique carrier and site number can be set for each AcroPack site by a DIP switch. This provides the capability to distinguish a particular AcroPack module from others when multiple instances of the same module are used in a system.

Key features of Acromag’s APCe7020 PCI Express carrier cards also include a standard 14-pin Xilinx JTAG programming header provided for programming and debugging the FPGA on some AcroPack modules; JTAG ports of the two AcroPack modules daisy-chained; plug-and-play carrier configuration and interrupt support; fused +1.5V, +3.3V, +5V, +12V, and -12V DC power provided with a fuse present on each supply line serving each AcroPack module; front panel SCSI-2 connectors for field I/O signals; and DIP switch card identification.
