VICB 8002 Industry-Pack Carrier Board
The VICB 8002 is a 6U (double height) VME board, which provides four Industry-Pack sites. The module can be configured using rear mounted transition cards to work with combinations of digital and analogue inputs and outputs. The module features hot-swap capability with auto power up and host interaction. An on-board FPGA allows full mapping of the IP board memory and I/O spaces.
The unit is constructed to the VME64x standard, with EMC front panel, injector/ejector handles, guide pin and slot keying, static discharge protection, hot swap capability, geographical addressing, 5-row P1 and P2 connectors and 5-row P0 connector.
A rear-mounted transition card with four high-density 50-way [SCSI2] connectors accepts all I/O signals and provides any necessary signal conditioning. The signals connect to the main board according to the VME64x Greenspring pinout for IP module carriers .
Additional Features etc.
There is a TTL input on the front panel to control acquisition stop/start. A microswitch in one of the handles detects insertion/removal and a hot-swap controller powers the unit smoothly up and down without disturbing the rest of the system. Host interaction during insertion/removal is in accordance with the VME64x specification. There are four IP sites on the board addressable on an individual basis . Addressing and handling of these IP sites is programmable through base control and status registers, including address offsets and interrupt mapping. The unit supports addressing in A16/D32/D16/D08(E0), A24/D32/D16/D08(EO) and A32/D32/D16/D08(EO) modes 16 OR 32BIT access for both I/O and memory to double-size IP cards. The registers and memory can be read at any time where I-P packs support arbitration.
