PMCspanPMC Expansion Board


The PMCspan board allows users to customize their exact I/O requirements with Artesyn Embedded Technologies' VME based CPU modules designed around the PowerPlus™ Architecture.

When coupled with an Artesyn processor module, the PMCspan provides up to six PMCs, more expansion capability than any other VMEbus processor module. Each PMCspan supports either two single-wide or one double-wide PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC). By stacking PMCspans, a total of four additional single-wide PMCs can be added to Artesyn's compute engines-either today or as future application growth demands.

The PMCspan is a standard 6U single-slot VMEbus module that links to its host board via a PCI expansion connector. It supports both front panel and P2 I/O access for customer supplied PMCs.
