The MPX8349FA is based on the MPX8349 and is fully compatible to the module. It offers a FPGA extension with its own DDR-SDRAM and DC/DC converter. The FPGA is linked to the MPC8349 via local bus and PCI. The CPU loads the FPGA after power-up. A 104-pin MPX connector makes FPGA I/Os accessible on a carrier board. The MPX8349FA forms part of the new MPX standard. The new connector technology allows mounting in both directions and stacking of modules with various interface boards. Versions for extended temperature (-40°..+85°C) are available.

CRX01 Carrier
The CRX01 Carrier Board covers physical layer for the most important MPX ports. It is designed not only for evaluating MPX modules during the design phase. Due to ist compact design it will fit into many applications directly. As the MPX technology allows stacking of boards application-specific functionality can be realised on dedicated PCBs that may be mounted on top of a combination CRX01-MPX-Module.

CRX01 Features

  • 2x 1000/100/10 MBit Ethernet on RJ45 connectors
  • USB 2.0 Host
  • 2x RS232 on RJ11 connectors, 1x 32-Bit PCI on edge connector
  • JTAG connector
  • Reset-Key
  • User-LED
  • 24V DC supply, Single Euro Format 100x160mm²

MPE03 Header Pin Adapter for MPX Modules
This Adaptor Boards is mounted on any MPX contact area on top or bottom of a MPX Module or CRX carrier. It makes all 208 lines accessible on header pins. FRCs or hole matrix boards may easily attached and allow rapid prototyping with MPX.

MPE03 Features

  • Makes all 208 lines of a (double) MPX connector available
  • 208 Header Pins arranged in blocks of 26
  • Standard 2,54mm pitch for easy attachment of FRC or Hole Matrix Boards

MPE04 MPX Boot Module
This module allows to restore the boot flash area of a MPX module. It is mounted on top or bottom of a MPX module. Withe the respective jumper setting the module will boot now from the flash area on the MPE04. The boot section may now be copied to the RAM area. After setting back the jumper it may be saved in the original boot flash of the MPX module. Now the MPX module will boot again on its own and the MPE04 can be removed.

MPE04 Features

  • Mounted on top or bottom of a MPX Module
  • Allows the MPX module to boot from the MPE04
  • Jumper selection between MPE04 and MPX flash area
