Acromag's New Next Generation I/O Modules for Long-Term Use Introduced at Embedded World 2017
|APCe7020E-LF populated with two AcroPack® I/O Modules|
Acromag’s new innovative PCIe-based AcroPack Series of general purpose I/O modules for embedded computing applications are an extended version of the mPCIe specification and feature a 100-pin connector to handle the I/O. The SWaP-C (size, weight power and cost) optimized modules are a tiny 70mm x 30mm in size and weigh on average only .05 ounces. Each module uses less than 5 watts of power and boards start at $395 per module.
The modules plug into connectors on AcroPack® carriers to add A/D, D/A, serial, digital I/O, and FPGA communication in any combination for embedded applications running on Linux®, Windows®, or VxWorks® operating systems. AcroPack carrier cards for PCIe or VPX systems hold up to four mini-PCIe or AcroPack™ mezzanine modules. The VPX carrier also has a conduction-cooled option.
For easy integration of the AP modules with real-time software application programs, Acromag offers C libraries for VxWorks® and other operating systems. The libraries provide generic routines (source code included) to handle reads, writes, interrupts, and other functions. Demonstration programs enable the developer to quickly exercise the I/O modules before attaching the routines to the application program. This diagnostic tool can save hours of troubleshooting and debugging. Visit www.Acromag.com/AcroPacks to learn more.
