PCI Express Non-Intelligent Carrier Card - APCe8675


Acromag's APCe8675 carrier card interfaces an XMC mezzanine module to a PCI Express bus in a PC-based desktop computer

system. The APCe8675 is a PCIe bus adapter board that allows a PC (PCIe bus master) to control and communicate with the hosted XMC module. It simply acts as an adapter to route signals between the system's PCIe bus and the XMC module connector.



  • One XMC module slot
  • 8-lane PCI Express interface
  • Cooling fan
  • Supports high-speed serial interface between neighboring cards using protocols such as XAUI or Aurora
  • Routes 32 differential pairs to rear connector for LVDS I/O from the XMC module
  • JTAG programming connector supports Xilinx programmer for use in with hosted FPGA modules
  • Auxilliary power connection for 12V source
