Description

OpenVPX™ 3U PCIe Switch & PMC/XMC carrier

The VPX3001 PCI Express Switch and PMC/XMC carrier card allows more easy system integration of single board computers and I/O modules in an OpenVPX™ system. It provides a PCI Express Switch (Gen 1/2/3) and a mezzanine carrier.

On the VPX3001 are a PCIe switch and a PCIe-to-PCI-X bridge. The PCIe-to-PCI-X bridge connects the PMC interface to the PCIe switch. The XMC interface is connected to the PCIe switch using PCIe x8, where the PCIe-to-PCI-X bridge is connected to the PCIe switch using PCIe x4. This leaves 16 PCIe lanes for a flexible and scalable interface configuration to the backplane. The PCIe lanes between switch and VPX™ backplane can be configured as four Fat Pipes (x4), four Thin Pipes (x2) or four Ultra Thin Pipes (x1). Or the lanes can also be combined as two Double Fat Pipes (x8) or one Quad Fat Pipe (x16).

The new Gen3 switch offers maximum PCI Express switching speed on 8 Giga transfers per second (GT/s) and still being backwards compatible with the Gen1/2 interfaces.

Populated with a processor XMC/PMC, the VPX3001 can act both as a system controller or as a non-system controller module.
