The i3000 M-module Carrier for CompactPCI features a 3U form factor CompactPCI gateway to the M-module interface. One M-module mounting socket is provided by this carrier. This carrier can be used in temperatures from -40°/+85°C. The M-module interface of the i3000 complies to the M-module Specification ANSI/VITA 12-1996. The interface features A8, A24, D16 and D32 access types.
The CompactPCI interface is PCI Specification 2.1 compliant, slave only. The CompactPCI to M-module bridge is implemented using the PCI9050 PCI Bus Target Interface Chip, by PLX Technology, Inc.
