MEN Mikro G100 - 3U CompactPCI® Serial to CompactPCI® Interface Card

8x 10/100 Ports, RJ-45 or M12, -40 to +85°C Qualified


The G100 is used in combination with the F100 to connect a CompactPCI® Serial system to a CompactPCI® system. The CompactPCI® Serial backplane and the CompactPCI® backplane can either be located in one housing or in two separate ones.

The G100 is plugged into a peripheral slot of a CompactPCI® Serial system and is connected to the F100 via a PCI Express® cable at the front which can have a length of up to 7 m. The F100 functions as the system slot in the CompactPCI® system.

The G100 uses one PCI Express® x1 link from the backplane and leads it to the front to an 18-pin PCI Express® connector.

The board is qualified for operation in the extended temperature range of -40 up to +85°C.
