The MMS6245 gives you the ultimate flexibility in rugged embedded I/O by allowing you to customize the 64 user-configurable front panel signals with our patented Electrical Conversion Module (ECM) technology. This configurable XMC carrier can host up to four ECMs giving you the ability to customize I/O to your specific needs.Abaco Systems' portfolio of companion ECM boards ensures you have the right mix of I/O on a single board solution. Choose from several serial protocols, digital I/O, audio, or analog interfaces. The MMS6245 is VITA 42.3 compliant and maps the 64 user-configurable pins to the front panel via a 68-pin SCSI-style connector.Board communication and control is accomplished over a PCIe Gen 1 x4 Link via the XMC P15 connector connected to an Intel® FPGA Cyclone® V FPGA.The MMS6245 comes pre-loaded with a default FPGA image compiled in Quartus Prime from Intel FPGA with Platform Designer (formerly Qsys) providing the interconnection between the Avalon bus IP components within the FPGA. The FPGA is the engine for the carrier orchestrating processing and I/O functions for the installed ECMs.Having a pre-built FPGA image removes the need for firmware and software API customizations for many use cases. Full FPGA source code is provided for advanced customization.Optional transition panels (e.g., P/N 4988) may be used to break out the differential signals into more convenient individual connectors, such as DB9 interface connectors
