CompactPCI Serial carrier board

16 May 2018 Computer/Embedded Technology

EKF Elektronik’s SK4-WALTZ is a peripheral slot board for CompactPCI Serial systems and acts as carrier card for an XMC-style mezzanine module.

XMC modules are specified by ANSI/VITA 42, as an advanced replacement for PMC modules. While using a similar form factor to PMC cards, XMC modules are provided with a PCI Express interface. The SK4-WALTZ can be used together with 74 x 149 mm full length or 74 x 139 mm short length XMC mezzanine cards.

The board is equipped with a bidirectional 8-lane PCI Express Gen3 redriver for optimum high-speed signal integrity, and should be installed into a fat pipe peripheral slot of a CompactPCI Serial backplane. As an option, the SK4-WALTZ can be populated with rear I/O connectors. The XMC carrier connector J16 signals are available across the CompactPCI Serial backplane connectors P4/P5, and J14 has been routed to P3.

The SK4 can accommodate high-performance FPGA XMC modules – the image shows the carrier with a Xilinx Ultra Scale Kintex FPGA.
