The Technobox 6768 is a Conduction-cooled Adapter that permits the insertion of a single PMC into a
PCI Express (PCIe / PCI-e) slot (4X). The adapter orients the ccPMC in a reverse manner such that the rear I/O from PN4 appears at the 68-pin SCSI-style connector
installed on the adapter’s bracket. Furthermore, the reverse orientation of the card permits direct access to the standard front I/O (if any) within the host chassis.
The differential pairing between PN4 and J1 follows a standard scheme. A similar adapter -- P/N 6773 -- offers a VITA 46 differential interface.
A distinctive feature of the adapter is its substantial copper heat sink and fan. An on-board fan controller measures the temperature of the heat sink and adjusts the fan speed.
A status monitor program provides temperature readings and a way to set fan parameters. Using a special cable (P/N 6351), any dumb terminal can be attached to the adapter
via its on-board RS-232 serial port.
