Development Packages for M-Modules and PMCs

MEN Micro, Inc. (Ambler, PA) introduced the Universal Submodule (USM) development packages for M-Modules and PMCs that turn specialized I/O requirements into a series of standard products. The product implements a board’s desired functionality through one or more IP cores in an FPGA, augmenting the flexibility of M-Modules and PMCs with individual functionality. The same USM may be used on M-Modules, PMC modules, XMCs, and conduction- cooled PMC modules. Operating temperature is -40 to 85°C.
