D217 - MVB Interface
The D217 is an MVB to PMC (PCI-Mezzanine-Card) interface and consists of a MVB controller chip, a local CPU and a PMC slave interface.
The MVB interface of the D217 complies the TCN standard IEC 61375. It is available for all wire based physical layers being on the market today:
- ESD+: This is the ESD as defined in the TCN standard, enhanced by a galvanic insulation (redundant MVB lines).
- EMD: Transformer based interface (redundant MVB lines).
A Bus Administrator is available as an option.
It is designed for the harsh traction environment (-40°C to 70°C) and tested against EN 50155 / EN 50121.
The D217 is not recommended for new designs
