System Examples

M-Module Carrier Board

The D203 is a 6U M-Module carrier board for universal I/O on the CompactPCI bus.

Dual Fast Ethernet PMC

The P511 is a dual Ethernet USM-based mezzanine PMC supporting an FPGA MAC layer and six additional GPIOS.

PowerPC Safe Computer

The D602 is a 6U, CompactPCI COTS computer, certifiable up to SIL 4 and DAL-A, with triple redundancy for functional safety on a single board to achieve fail-operational, fault-tolerant behavior.

Unmanaged Industrial Ethernet Switch

The F301 is an unmanaged 3U Fast Ethernet switch module with a maximum of 8 channels at the front panel (8 RJ45 or 6 D-Sub connectors) and an integrated Fast Ethernet controller.

Intel Core 2 Duo CPU Board

The F19P versatile 4HP/3U single-board computer is compatible to the CompactPCI PlusIO standard and equipped with the Intel Core 2 Duo processor SP9300.


The G501 is a CompactPCI Serial hard disk drive carrier board designed to carry a 2.5" SATA hard disk drive or a solid state drive.
