?Pci Mezzanine?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release PCI mezzanine card targets the space industry from Aitech Defense Systems, which we summarised at the time by saying "Aitech Defense Systems is offering the S750, said to be the space industry's first COTS, radiation-tolerant, Layer 2 Gigabit Ethernet switch PCI mezzanine card (PMC).". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Clamshells safeguard PCBs in defence applications from Schroff: "Schroff has introduced a range of VPX clamshells that safeguard printed circuit boards in the extreme environmental conditions associated with defence applications. ".

In November 2010, we covered the news from Harting - take a look at PCB connectors target board-to-board applications which says: "Harting's Har-Flex connector series is a space-saving, rugged and flexible PCB connector for board-to-board and board-to-cable applications. ".

Take a look also at the news release from Tyco Electronics, Connector maximises PCB space in computer systems, as well as Demonstration platform supports Serial RapidIO 2.1 from Lattice Semiconductor, and PMC mezzanine cards for rugged implementations from BVM.
