- Single-slot 6U VMEbus format
- PLX6150 PCI-to-PCI interface bridge
- Support for two single-wide or one double-wide PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC) per PMCspan
The PMCspan board from Penguin Solutions™ allows users to customize their exact I/O requirements with the Penguin Edge™ VME-based CPU modules designed around the PowerPlus™ Architecture. When coupled with an Penguin Edge processor module, the PMCspan provides up to six PMCs, more expansion capability than any other VMEbus processor module. Each Penguin Edge PMCspan supports either two single-wide or one double-wide PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC). By stacking PMCspans, a total of four additional single-wide PMCs can be added to the Penguin Edge compute engines-either today or as future application growth demands. The PMCspan is a standard 6U single-slot VMEbus module that links to its host board via a PCI expansion connector. It supports both front panel and P2 I/O access for customer supplied PMCs.
