TEWS TECHNOLOGIES Launches High-Density PMC Carrier for MTCA.4 Rear I/O

TEWS TECHNOLOGIES today announced the release of the TAMC261, a standard Mid-Size/Full-Size AMC.1 (PCI-Express) and MTCA.4 compliant carrier for one single-width PMC module. The TAMC261 is a versatile solution to upgrade well known legacy PMC I/O solutions to the high performance AMC form factor. PMC modules provide modular cost effective I/O solutions for applications in process control, medical systems, COTS, telecommunications and traffic control.

PMC modules provide modular cost effective I/O solutions for applications in process control, medical systems, COTS, telecommunications and traffic control.

A PI7C9X130 PCIe-to-PCI bridge provides the connection between primary PCIe link and the secondary PMC slot. The bridge controls all PCI accesses and the frequency for the PMC access. PCI is supported up to 64-bit @66MHz and PCI-X is supported up to 64-bit @133MHz.

Physical connection is through front panel I/O, alternatively the MTCA.4 interface provides access to the PMC P14 back I/O lines. According to MTCA.4, the TAMC261 features two 30-pair ADF connectors at the Zone 3 interface (Rear I/O) that provide access to all P14 back I/O lines via a compatible µRTM.

Additionally the module versions TAMC261-2x provide M-LVDS transceivers connected to AMC port 12-15, port 17-20 and the TCLKA-D. All control and data lines of the M-LVDS transceivers are routed to the zone 3 interface, enabling a mounted PMC to access the AMC port signals via the µRTM.

According to AMC.0, the TAMC261 provides an IPMI compliant Module Management Controller (MMC) with temperature monitoring and hot-swap support.

In order to support long term programs, the TAMC261 have a 5 year warranty.
