The PMC238 is a 6U form factor card that expands a single PMC site on a VMEbus processor board to two PMC sites and one PCMCIA/CardBus socket or to three PMC sites. Compatible with many VMEbus single board computers, it provides an extension of PCI and PCMCIA capacity within the VMEbus form factor. The PMC238 has the option for the PCMCIA/CardBus cards to be mounted outside the chassis using an 18-inch cable.
Functionally, the PMC238 consists of a PCI/PCI bridge (assuring compliance with PCI loading) and an optional PCI/PCMCIA Host Bus Adapter. Full PCI bandwidth can be maintained to PMC devices installed on the PMC238.
The PMC238 offers several configurations tailoring on-board functionality and host SBC connections.
