Thales Computers has complemented its line of COTS and standard PCI Mezzanine Cards (PMCs) by introducing a front panel data port (FPDP) PCI mezzanine card.

Designed to provide high-speed data acquisition in VME or CompactPCI SBCs used for DSP, the PMC-FPDP features a front panel data port interface compliant with ANSI/VITA-17. It is based on the PLX PCI 9656 chip, which provides a 32/64-bit, 33/66 MHz PCI bus master/slave interface with a linked list Direct Memory Access (DMA) engine, enabling data throughput speeds greater than 100MBps. The control logic for the device is handled by a user-programmable Altera EP1S10 FPGA, with a 64KB integrated FIFO.

The board is available in air-cooled (SA), rugged air-cooled (RA) and rugged conduction-cooled (RC) versions with operating temperature ranges of -40C to 75C (SA and RA) and -40C to 85C (RC). Software support is provided for LynxOS 4.0 under a no-copy low latency Virtual Interface/ Direct Deposit Interface.

Pricing for the PMC-FPDP starts at $2,240 in quantities of 100.
