The Technobox 4044 PCI-X to PMC-X Adapter permits
operation of a standard 32 or 64 bit PCI-X card in a PMC-X slot. It provides a migration path for PCI-X board suppliers to port their products
to a PMC-X form factor. As the PMCX equivalent board is developed, software development and migration can proceed with the original PCI-X
board operating in a PMC-X environment.
Also, developers can evaluate product performance in a PMC-X environment before committing to a PMC-X conversion effort.
This is a passive adapter (no PCI-to-PCI bridge chip) that requires no software setup. However, note that the PCI bus signaling level (3.3 or
5V) must match between the host PMC site and the PCI board. Also, for proper operation, 64-bit PCI cards must be used in a 64-bit capable
