The PCI-60A IndustryPack carrier board provides six IndustryPack slots on a single desktop or industrial PCI slot card. The PCI-60A-8/32 provides a clock that is software-selectable on a per-slot basis and has an overall higher performance. The standard 8 MB memory space is available for each IndustryPack site. High speed 32-bit PCI host address space permits desirable linear mapping and fixed address partitions of memory, I/O and ID spaces for each IndustryPack module. The PCI-60A uses a PLX PCI9080 controller as the PCI bus interface chip and Altera FPGA logic, which provides fully configurable PCI interrupt vector space. The PCI bus interface handles 3.3V and 5.0V signaling levels. Each IndustryPack site has an adjacent 50-pin I/O connector for exiting the host system through the PCI slot panel. One connector is accessible via the rear-panel. The standard connector permits most of our transition modules and terminal blocks to be used. The PCI-60A meets the PCI specification and conforms to the VITA-4 IndustryPack Logic Interface Specification. This guarantees compatibility with a wide range of IndustryPacks. The PCI-60A is backward compatible with the PCI-40A.
