CPS-ASM4 is Kontron's standard product family for CompactPCI® Serial system infrastructure.
CPS-ASM4 already enables most system platform solutions: Card cages 19" rackmount, 42HP wallmount and 44HP tabletop, with AC or DC Power Supplies, backplanes of different slot count, with system slot right or left, with rear-I/O options for peripheral and system slots.

Saving the investments into CompactPCI®: No change for housing, cooling, installation.
The mechanical design of CPS-ASM4 is backward compatible with Kontron’s classic 3U CompactPCI® system portfolio. Housing and cooling all stay the same, rackmount installations can be re-used when the next generation application will be based on CompactPCI® Serial racks.

Saving the investments into CompactPCI®: CompactPCI® periphery can be re-used.
Migrating from CompactPCI® to CompactPCI® Serial is easy: A so-called “Hybrid” card cage is equipped with two usual backplanes, one which carries classic CPCI boards and the other CompactPCI® Serial boards. The only additionally needed building block is a PCIe-to-PCI bridge as an optional feature of the processor board’s I/O extension card!

  • Simply use a bridge option CPCI-S to CPCI
  • No additional bridge boards needed besides the CPU-Extension
  • No need for intermediate standards
  • No special backplane needed

Rear-I/O option for peripheral and system slots.
Connector P6 is alternatively used for RIO signals, to enable RIO also for the system slot.
