XMC and PMC modules are an ideal way to add functionality to modular, open standards based systems. These mezzanine modules are about the size of a postcard and are plugged into compatible slots on a host processor or carrier board to create the right mix of functionality for specific applications. XMC builds on the success of the PMC standard by keeping a common form factor but with higher bandwidth communications using serial interconnects such as PCI Express. Unlike many alternative mezzanine standards which are aimed at commercial air cooled installations, XMCs are widely deployed in rugged conduction cooled solutions as the underlying standards define the necessary mechanical requirements for both the modules and carriers.
Concurrent Technologies offers a wide range of XMC and PMC modules that are suitable for commercial and rugged deployments..
