TEWS TECHNOLOGIES today announced the TAMC260, a double-width full-size PMC carrier for AMC that supports one single-width PMC module. The TAMC260 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, aerospace/defense COTS, telecommunications and traffic control.

32 bit PCI accesses are supported on the PCI bus at both 33 MHz and 66 MHz. The PLX8112 PCIe-to-PCI bridge provides the real connection between the primary PCIe link and the secondary PMC slot. The bridge controls all PCI accesses and sets the frequency for the PMC access.

The TAMC260 supports front panel I/O, and additionally a 68 pin SCSI-V type connector provides access to the PMC P14 back I/O lines.

In compliance with specification AMC.0, the TAMC260 provides an IPMI compliant Module Management Controller (MMC) with temperature monitoring and hot-swap support.

In order to support long term programs, the new TEWS’ modules have a 5 year warranty. Software support for major operating systems including Windows, Linux, VxWorks, and QNX is available.
