The i2001 M-module Carrier for PCI bus implements a PCI bus gateway to the M-module interface. One M-module mounting socket is provided by this carrier. The M-module I/O connector is accessible through the PCI card bracket.
The M-module interface of the i2001 complies to the M-module Specification ANSI/VITA 12-1996. The interface features A8, A24, D16 and D32 access types.
The PCI interface is PCI Specification 2.2 compliant, slave only. Operating voltage 5V, universal PCI compliant (3.3V or 5V signaling voltage). The PCI to M-module bridge is implemented using the PCI9030 PCI Bus Target Interface Chip, by PLX Technology, Inc
