Acromag -  PCI Express Carrier Cards for Industry Pack Modules


Acromag's APCe8650 IndustryPack (IP) carrier cards offer a simple and cost-effective solution for interfacing I/O mezzanine modules to a PCI Express embedded AcromagAPC8650computer system. These slot-saving carrier cards route power and interface bus signals to four plug-in IP modules through the PCIe card slot connector for rapid data throughput. By inserting any mix of up to four industrial I/O modules from Acromag or other vendors on the carrier, developers can easily create custom I/O boards to meet their unique requirements for use within a PCIe-based computer. 



  • Four IP module slots (ANSI/VITA 4 mezzanine) support any combination of I/O functions
  • Board resides in memory space
  • Supports IP's I/O, ID, INT, and MEM spaces
  • Plug-and-play carrier configuration and interrupt support
  • Two interrupt channels per IP module
  • Supervisory circuit reset generation
  • Individually filtered and fused power
  • Full IP module register and data access for convenient configuration or control of the I/O modules through software
  • Non-volatile ID register to identify carrier

Pentek - Highest Speed Data Acquisition Module with Multi-Board Sync for Radar and UAV Apps 


Capable of digitizing one 12-bit channel at 3.6 GHz, or two channels at 1.8 GHz, the Model 71640 nearly quadruples the signal bandwidth that can be handled on a single channel. Further, the 71640 has provisions for the synchronization of multiple boards for capture and analysis of even wider bandwidths.



  • Ideal radar and software radio interface solution
  • Supports Xilinx Virtex-6 LXT and SXT FPGAs
  • One-channel mode with 3.6 GHz, 12-bit A/D
  • Two-channel mode with 1.8 GHz, 12-bit A/Ds
  • 2 GB of DDR3 SDRAM
  • Sync bus for multimodule synchronization
  • PCI Express Gen. 2 interface x8 wide
  • User configurable gigabit serial interface
  • LVDS connections to the Virtex-6 FPGA for custom I/O

Symmetricom - CSAC GPS Disciplined Oscillator Featuring the QUANTUMTM SA.45s Chip Scale Atomic Clock (CSAC) 

SymmGSPDOSymmetricom's QUANTUMTM SA.45s Chip Scale Atomic Clock (CSAC) GPS Disciplined Oscillator (GPSDO) is the preeminent solution for demanding mobile GPS applications. These include military man-pack radios that require very low-g static sensitivity, MILSATCOM terminals, avionics payloads for Unmanned Autonomous Systems (UAS) and high acceleration applications such as jet fighters. All of these applications are increasingly expected to deliver mission critical performance even in GPS-denied environments. Other applications include network timing in stationary applications such as base-stations.



  • Unparalleled holdover: +/-1 μsec (typ 24hr period @25║C)
  • Ultra low power consumption: 1.4W@25║C (12V Vdd)
  • Fast warm-up time: <110 seconds (@25║C)
  • Industry leading 1PPS accuracy:+/-15ns to UTC RMS (1-sigma)
  • Slim profile: 0.7" (H) x 2.5" (W) x 3.0" (L)
  • QUANTUM™ Series SA.45s Chip Scale Atomic Clock (CSAC) for holdover
  • Ultra low-g static sensitivity (typ 0.1ppb/axis) - ideal for man-packs
  • Maintains GPS lock with only one satellite in view
