The ACR5305/CC is a PMC/XMC carrier card manufactured by Acromag and is one of a family of open architecture VPX modules available from Curtiss-Wright. The ACR5305 is intended for use with Curtiss-Wright XMC-715 graphics card, XMC-651 Ethernet Switch and other mezzanine modules.

These 3U mezzanine carrier cards provide a simple and cost-effective solution for interfacing a PMC or XMC module to a VPX computer system. The carrier card routes power and bus signals to a plug-in mezzanine module through the VPX card slot connector.

These carriers are ideal for high performance industrial, defense, scientific research, and telephony systems requiring high speed I/O expansion. The ACR5305/CC is available in two versions: air-cooled and conduction-cooled.

Backplane Fabric Ports
The ACR5305/CC connects to other cards via an 8-lane Gen1 or Gen2 PCIe port through the VITA 46.9 P1 connector. All PCIe ports go through a PLX PCIe switch.

OpenVPX Carrier Interface
The ACR5305/CC is compatible with the following VITA 65 module/slot profiles:

  • MOD3-PER-1F-16.3.2-2/SLT3-PER-1F-14.3.2
  • MOD3-PAY-1D-16.2.6-11/SLT3-PAY-1D-14.2.6

The ACR5305/CC is equipped with one mezzanine site capable of supporting an IEEE 1386 PMC or a VITA 42.3 XMC module. The XMC site is connected to the PCIe switch through an 8-lane PCIe host interface on the P2 connector. The PMC is connected via a dedicated 4-lane port from the PCIe switch through PCIe to the PCI-X bridge.

The mezzanine site I/O complies with VITA 46.9 P2w1-P64s with the 64 signals of PMC I/O from Pn4 routed to the VPX P2 as 32 differential pairs. The XMC Pn6 connector is not populated.
