F217 - 3U CompactPCI® Memory Card Carrier

F217 - 3U CompactPCI® Memory Card Carrier

The F217 is a 3U 4HP CompactPCI® board which offers a multitude of memory configurations. It is equipped with a CompactFlash® socket and a multi card reader which supports MS, SD and MMC plus cards.

The memory cards are accessible at the front and can be inserted and removed during operation (hot plug). They can optionally be protected by an EMC-proof cover which also secures the cards mechanically, so that they cannot fall out. This protection makes the boards especially suited for harsh environments. A button for hot-extraction request and four status LEDs are also provided at the front panel.

The F217 is screened for operation in the extended temperature range of -40 to

+85°C.

Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)

Computer boards and components contain electrostatic sensitive devices.

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage components. To protect the board and other components against damage from static electricity, you should follow some precautions whenever you work on your computer.

• Power down and unplug your computer system when working on the inside.

• Hold components by the edges and try not to touch the IC chips, leads, or circuitry.

• Use a grounded wrist strap before handling computer components.

• Place components on a grounded antistatic pad or on the bag that came with the component whenever the components are separated from the system.

• Store the board only in its original ESD-protected packaging. Retain the original packaging in case you need to return the board to MEN for repair.

LEDs and Request Button

The F217 provides four user-definable LEDs and a request button at the front panel which can be controlled via an I

C expander connected to the SMBus. MEN provides a driver for accessing the SMBus. See MEN’s website for more information and downloads.

Eight different SMBus addresses can be set for the I

C expander using a hex switch

to avoid conflicts with other SMBus devices in the system. See Table 2, SMBus addresses of port expander on page 17

LED Control

The four LEDs are controlled by the first four GPIOs of the port expander.

• Logic High on related SMBus data results in an inactive LED

• Logic Low on related SMBus data results in an active LED.

Per default the four LEDs are inactive after power up.

CompactPCI Interface

The F217 supports a 32-bit 33-MHz CompactPCI interface fully compatible with

CompactPCI specification PICMG 2.0 Rev. 3.0. The board works with 3.3V and tolerates 5V V I/O.

For full CompactPCI functionality only the J1 connector is needed, therefore the board only has a J1 connector to the bus.

Connector type of J1:

• 110-pin shielded, 2mm-pitch, 5-row receptacle according to IEC 917 and IEC

1076-4-101

The pin assignment of connector J1 as defined in the CompactPCI specification will not be repeated here.

2.7

Front Panel Cover (Optional)

As an option the F217 can be equipped with a front panel cover which ensures EMC protection and also mechanical fixation for the cards to ensure that they do not fall out. A special board version is required for this. Please contact MEN’s sales team for further information.

Finding out the Product’s Article Number, Revision and

Serial Number

MEN user documentation may describe several different models and/or design revisions of the F217. You can find information on the article number, the design revision and the serial number on two labels attached to the board.

Article number: Gives the product’s family and model. This is also MEN’s ordering number. To be complete it must have 9 characters.

Revision number: Gives the design revision of the product.

Serial number: Unique identification assigned during production.

If you need support, you should communicate these numbers to MEN.
