The TCPS260 is a PICMG CPCI-S.0 R2.0 compatible 3U module that provides one slot for a single-width PMC module used to build modular, flexible and cost effective I/O solutions for all kinds of applications like process control, medical systems, telecommunication and traffic control.

The TCPS260 is a versatile solution to upgrade well known PMC I/O solutions to the CompactPCI Serial standard.

The bridging between the system host board and the PMC slot is handled by a transparent PCIe-to-PCI Bridge. The Bridge provides an x1, Rev. 2.0 PCIe link with 2.5 Gbps signaling rate.

On the PMC side, PCI signaling voltages of 3.3V and 5V are supported; 3.3V signaling is default. 32-bit PCI accesses are possible with 33MHz or 66MHz. The TCPS260 supports PMC front-panel I/O.
