The XMC module to PCI Express Adapter (“Adapter”) allows a single width XMC VITA 42.3 compatible module to be used in a PCI Express x8 or x16 slot.
The HRG gives you much more detail about the card such as block diagrams, tables and descriptions.
By using the high quality low loss PCB material and the best layout practices for maintaining highest possible signal integrity up to Gen 3 PCIe speed operation is possible. However, the PCIe link maximum speed is dependent on the used XMC module /host system combination and cannot be guaranteed by Interconnect Systems.
The XMC P16 connector’s eight high-speed signal pairs, which are typically connected to the Multi-Gigabit Transceivers (MGT) on the XMC module’s FPGA, are routed to a dual Mini SAS HD SB type connector and, with an optional XMC-PCIe x8 Adapter Satellite Board (“Satellite Board”), provide user with two high speed QSFP ports. This allows for a simple way to “patch-panel” communications links between cards and or/other systems. A direct board to board connection without the Satellite board is also possible when two Adapter boards are used inside the same host system. When operating with most Innovative XMC modules speeds up to 3Gbps are typically achievable.
