Embedded I/O

Industry pack

IndustryPack, also known as IP Modules or IPack, exist in single size (1.8" x 3.9") and double size (3.6" x 3.9") versions. The modules reside on carriers and provide cost effective I/O solutions due to their small construction and form-factor features.

PMC

PCI Mezzanine card (PMC) PMC is a mezzanine standard largely based on the PCI standard. The electrical and logical layers are the same as those defined by the PCI standard. With a module size of 149 mm x 74 mm, a 6U VME or cPCI carrier board can hold two PMC modules.

TPMC632
 

XMC

PCI ANSI/VITA 42.0 is a mezzanine card standard providing high-speed, switched interconnect protocols on the existing, widely deployed CMC (Common Mezzanine Card) IEEE P1386 form factor.

The mechanical and dimensional specifications are the same as those defined by the CMC form factor. A standard, single width XMC Mezzanine Card has a module size of 149 mm x 74 mm, which means that a 6U carrier board can hold up to two XMC modules.

TXMC633



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.

 

CompactPCI

TEWS TECHNOLOGIES is working continuously to extend its product range of I/O solutions based on the CompactPCI standard.

The CompactPCI product line offers comparable functionality to TEWS PMC module product line, which are well proven in several hundred OEM installations. The cPCI modules are designed for applications in transportation, communications, process control, and COTS.

Low-cost, off-the-shelf software drivers are available for VxWorks, Linux, Integrity, Windows, LynxOS, and QNX.

PCI PCIe mPCIe PC/104+

PCI is the most widely used computer board form factor and bus structure in the world of personal computer technology.

With the introduction of high-reliability systems and ruggedized packaging, the use of standard PCI edge cards has spread widely into the industrial and COTS marketplaces. Demand for functionality such as serial communications, field bus, networking, analog and digital I/O, and motion control has increased.

In addition to our well known PCImodules, a complete line of CompactPCI, PCI Express, PCI Express Mini Card, VMEbus, PMC, XMC, PC104+, AMC, MicroTCA, FMC, and numerous IndustryPack modules off-the-shelf are available.

VME

VMEbus technology is well-established for industrial applications and automation technology with high-security standards, infinite processor performance requirements, and real-time capability. Since 1985, TEWS TECHNOLOGIES has offered VME products. At that time, TEWS recognized the need for a standard I/O product offering, and with Motorola's backing of the bus architecture, VME was the natural choice. Experience in the modular I/O market grew from our work with VME. In addition to our well known modular I/O solutions, we offer VME IndustryPack carriers and general VME-based industrial I/O solutions. TEWS is committed to long-term support of the VMEbus and will continue to announce VME products well into the future.

Accessories

To facilitate system integration, TEWS offers a variety of accessories such as cable and terminal blocks for IndustryPack, PMC, XMC, CompactPCI, PCI, PCI Express, PCI Express Mini Card, VMEbus, PC104+, AMC, MicroTCA, and FMC modules. Mounting kits, PIM modules and extended front panels are also available.

 

Software

Software driver support for operating systems like VxWorks, Windows, Linux, Integrity, and QNX6 for most modules are available. Other operating systems on request.
