F100 - CompactPCI to CompactPCI Serial Interface Card (Product Discontinued)

The F100 is used in combination with the G100 to connect a CompactPCI Serial system to a CompactPCI system. The CompactPCI Serial backplane and the CompactPCI backplane can either be located in one housing or in two separate ones.

The F100 is plugged into the system slot of the CompactPCI system. It is equipped with a PCI-Express-to-PCI bridge which acts as a master for up to 7 PCI devices. It supports 32-bit and 33-MHz.

The F100 is connected to the G100 via a PCI Express cable at the front panel which can have a length of up to 7 m. The G100 is located in a peripheral slot of the CompactPCI system.

Optionally the F100 can also be used without the G100 if the PCI Express x1 link is led to the board via the backplane. For this, a special backplane isneeded, however. Another possibility is to directly control a CompactPCI system using an external PC (e.g. a notebook) for evaluating or programming the application.

The board is qualified for operation in the extended temperature range of -40 up to +85°C.
