The carrier supports two 3U PXI or cPCI modules or one 6U PXI or cPCI module. It has an on-board PowerPC processor that can perform command translation, data analysis, and many other data processing or process control functions. Data can be transferred to/from a PXI or PMC device and on-board memory at a sustained rate of 132 Mbytes/s.
The VX407C Intelligent Carrier supports both VXI register-based and word serial modes of operation. Attached cPCI/PXI modules can be directly accessed from
VXI and the PowerPC® microprocessor. The electrical and mechanical interface allows cPCI or PXI modules to be easily
integrated into a VXI system. Modules mount with front panels fl ush with other VXI modules in the system. Single, double, and triple wide cPCI/PXI modules are
supported. In addition to cPCI/PXI support, the carrier provides one PMC position that allows additional functionality to be added, such as
mass storage or communication interfaces. A mating connector is provided for I/O access. Relay driver logic allows special control hardware to be easily added to the overall integrated system. The VX407C is powered by a highly integrated PowerPC® 8245 microprocessor with a PowerPC 603e™ core, a built-in peripheral interface interconnect (PCI) interface, and an advanced memory controller. Dual-ported shared memory and a complete register and interruptbased interface allows fast VXI communication with the PowerPC® application software.
