F605 - Side Card XMC/PMC (Product Discontinued)

The F605 is a 4HP XMC or alternatively PMC extension card for 3U Intel based CompactPCI single-board computers F15, F17, F18 and F19P.

The XMC slot supports either one PCI Express link with 4 lanes on one XMC connector or 1 link with one lane on each ofthe two XMC connectors . The PMC slot can be used for 32/64 bit and 33/66 MHz PMC cards and supports up to 133 MHz PCI-X. The board detects automatically whether an XMC or a PMC is plugged.

The F605 is directly plugged to the right side of the respective single-board computer. A robust connector makes for high mechanical stability. It is delivered with an 8HP front panel, replacing the 4HP front panel of a 3U single-board computer and thus resulting in a solid one-piece front panel.
