The TPIM006 is a PMC I/O Module (PIM) compatible module providing easy access to the PMC back I/O lines of PMC carriers when used on a PIM carrier.
The TPIM006 distributes the Ethernet signals of TEWS' Gigabit Ethernet PMC modules with P14 back I/O to RJ45 connectors located in the front panel of the PIM module.
Impedance mismatches, caused by CMC connectors and backplane connectors, lead to signal distortion of the Ethernet signals. To reduce these effects, the routing on the TPIM006 is optimized for differential Ethernet signals.
Additionally, common mode choke filters are placed into the Ethernet signal lines to improve signal quality by suppressing common mode noise on the Ethernet signal lines.
The TPIM006-10R reproduces the front I/O signal mapping of TEWS' four channel 10/100/1000 Mbit/s Ethernet adapter PMC in its RJ45 connectors when used with the TPMC895-11R or TPMC395-10R for example.
The module meets the requirements to operate in extended temperature range from -40°C to +85°C.
