The conventional bus architectures like PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) which are limited in speed have evolved to next generation high-speed point-to-point interconnects like PCI Express or Serial RapidIO. These offer higher bandwidths over greater transmission distances using fewer pins. To use these advantages on CMCs, the XMC standard with its protocol sub-standards like VITA 42.3 (PCI Express) or VITA 42.2 (Serial RapidIO) was developed as an evolution of the PMC (PCI Mezzanine Card).
In addition to the high-speed XMC Connector(s) an XMC can optionally be equipped with PMC Connectors which offers the possibility to remain compatibility to existing transition module back I/O solutions, for example, Mezzanine.
