Peritek card eases PMC integration for embedded systems

Peritek Corp.'s PMA-P single-slot PCI card hosts any 32- or 64-bit PCI mezzanine card module and eases integration of PMC boards into embedded systems.

The unit can be used with PMC mezzanine boards such as Peritek's RG-101 and VCQ-M graphic cards. "This passive carrier lets the integrator simply plug in any standard PMC card without any additional software development burden," said Victor Gold, president of Peritek.

Gold said there is no additional software development burden because the PMA-P is a passive PMC-to-PCI adapter module. As such, he said, there is no PCI-to-PCI bridge to program. Rather, the adapter makes a direct PCI bus connection between the PMC and PCI connectors.

Although the PMA-P is a passive addition to the PCI bus, optional 3.3V generation is provided for use in PCI machines that don't provide their own power.

The PMA-P supports PCI Rev. 2.1. It contains a full 64-bit interconnect between its PCI edge connector and the four PMC expansion connectors. An optional VME P2-type connector enables access to user I/O signals on the PMC J4 connector. Jumpers enable the user to select 66MHz operation, PCI PSNT and PMC Busmode options.

The adapter board is available in two configurations. The first, PMA-P, features full PMC J1-J4 connectors, a JTAG connector and indicator LEDs. The second version, the PMA-P/P2, is identical except for the addition of the optional VMEbus P2-style connector.

Pricing starts at $295 in 100-piece quantities.
