MEN Mikro F217 - 3U CompactPCI® MS, SD and MMC plus Memory Card Carrier

Compact Flash & Memory Card Reader, -40 to +85°C Screened


The F217 is a 3U 4HP CompactPCI® board which offers a multitude of memory configurations. It is equipped with a CompactFlash® socket and a multi-card reader which supports MS, SD and MMC plus cards.

The memory cards are accessible at the front and can be inserted and removed during operation (hot plug). They can optionally be protected by an EMC-proof cover which also secures the cards mechanically so that they cannot fall out. This protection makes the boards especially suited for harsh environments. A button for hot extraction request and four status LEDs are also provided at the front panel.

The F217 is screened for operation in the extended temperature range of -40 to +85°C.
