PMC Carrier for 3U CompactPCI

  • Standard 3U CompactPCI module
  • Cost effective solution to provide I/O in CompactPCI environment
  • Flexible I/O (TEWS offers a wide range of I/O PMCs)
  • Supports 1 single-width 32 bit PMC
  • Provides access to the PMC front I/O
  • Optional provides rear I/O (P14) via CompactPCI connector J2/P2
  • 33 MHz PCI frequency

Product status: Active

Operating Temperature Range -40 °C to +85 °C RoHS compliant

The TCP270 is a standard 3U CompactPCI carrier that provides front I/O and rear I/O for a single width PMC module. This PMC to 3U CompactPCI adapter is used to build modular, flexible and cost effective I/O solutions with PMC devices in CompactPCI systems.

32 bit / 33 MHz accesses are supported on the PCI bus. The TCP270 is used as a mechanical adaptor to connect a standard PMC module in 3U CompactPCI systems.

The TCP270 supports PMC front I/O and optional CompactPCI rear I/O at CompactPCI connector J2/P2. The pin assignment corresponds to the PICMG 2.3 R1.0 PMC on CompactPCI signal mapping.

The use of PMC I/O on the J2/P2 connector (TCP270-11) precludes the use of 64 bit CompactPCI backplanes.

The TCP270 carrier complies with the PICMG 2.0 Revision 3.0 CompactPCI specification.

Operating temperature range is -40 °C to +85 °C.
