APCe7043E: PCI Express Carrier Card for AcroPack® Modules
• Four AcroPack or mini-PCIe mezzanine module slots
• Non-intelligent carrier
• 3/4-length PCIe x4 interface
This board interfaces four AcroPack mezzanine modules to a PCI Express bus on a PC-based computer system. It is designed to provide isolation on two slots between the AcroPack field I/O signals and the host when used with an isolated AcroPack module.
Four AcroPack module slots give you the freedom to mix a variety of I/O functions (A/D, D/A, digital in, digital out, serial I/O, FPGA, etc.) on a single board. Or, combine modules of the same type for almost two hundred channels on a single card. Either way, the APCe7043 saves your precious card slots and reduces your costs.
Select I/O modules from Acromag’s offering or use most third-party mPCIe compliant modules.
