The TPCE277 is a standard height PCI Express Revision 3.0 compatible module that provides one slot for a single-width XMC 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 TPCE277 is a versatile solution to upgrade well known XMC I/O solutions to the PCI Express signalling standard.
The PCI Express x1 link from the host board to the XMC module is improved by a PCIe Gen3 Redriver, allowing safe operation of XMC modules on PCIe mainboards.
VPWR is selectable via order option. The TPCE277-x0R variants provide for 12V VPWR and the TPCE277-x1R order options provide 5V VPWR.
The TPCE277 supports XMC front panel I/O.
The PCIe edge card connector provides +12V and +3.3V. The TPCE277-1xR uses the +12V of the PCIe edge card connector to generate all power supply voltages for the XMC slot (+3.3V, VPWR and +12V). According to the PCIe specification, a PCIe x1 card is limited to 6W on the +12V which allows to operate many of the available XMC modules on the TPCE277-1xR.
For increased power requirements of an XMC module, the TPCE277-2xR offer a PCIe Graphics Power Connector to supply the +12V for generating all the power supply voltages for the XMC slot providing power of up to 25W.
A 10-pin JTAG header is available for XMC module debugging purposes. All five JTAG signals are routed directly to the XMC slot.
