First XMC module to host Mini PCI Express I/O and mSATA storage formats

April 18, 2013 // By Julien Happich
The Xport5005 from Sarsen Technology is a new XMC module that can be quickly configured to support a platform’s specific I/O or storage needs.

By supporting up to three Mini-PCIe cards, the XPort5005 provides a flexible platform for hosting everything from wireless modules (WLAN, cellular, GPS) to communication modules (MIL-STD-1533, CAN, ARINC-429). As the industry’s first XMC to leverage the widely supported Mini PCI Express I/O and mSATA storage module markets, the XPort5005 offers a flexible solution for meeting current and future platform requirements. The module has sites for two Full-Height Mini-PCIe cards and a Half-Height Mini-PCIe card. All three sites support x1 PCIe 2.0 and a USB 2.0 interface for added flexibility. Each site also provides a mini-SIM socket for use with cellular modules. Alternatively, the two Full-Height Mini-PCIe sites can be populated with mSATA modules to meet solid state storage requirements.The card supports operational temperatures from -40 to +85ºC for conduction cooled applications and -40 to +º70C for forced air cooled applications.
